Hi Scary Mum
Pushy? Moi? My wife begs to differ.
She says that I am so laid back she is surprised that I don't fall over backwards. I don't consider myself particularly pushy, either as a dad or as a person. But I am famous (in my own lunchtime) for my sense of irony, hence the choice of handles
This summer my kids need to do some prep work, ready for Year 7 (their primary school has only touched on the basic basics for French and don't get me started on how little science they have been taught
) but we booked them on a week long course on movie making. Then DS is doing a week long course in PC games programming while his sister is doing a netball course. Then there is the annual trip to Devon to visit my in-laws.
No doubt after reading this there will still be parents who think 'what a pushy parent!'
