they should be able to sit for about 3 minutes and 5 minutes.

I knew my 2YO was going to be an arsehole this week when I tried to go for coffee. She excelled herself. It's the triumph of hope over experience isn't it?

Friday afternoon at the end of the first week back? YAB deluded my dear!

5-10 minutes, YANBU. 20? Straight after school and a no doubt sugary snack/drink (or is that just me blush?) - YABVU

you have my sympathy OP my two played merry hell today. all I needed was 3 minutes to give a quick on street interview and they had to stand beside me quietly. they are 8 and 4. did they stand quiety? did they fuck! 4 year old bolted up the street and 8 year old after him then kicked me when I brought him back! fuming is not the word. there have been stern words.

I think you are expecting a bit much, but I don't know your children. It has been a long and exhausting week for my school's 5 year olds. To quote one of my nephews "I've run out of goodness". I've seen quite a bit of this missing "goodness" as they all walked home!

Particularly as they always want to go in and it was supposed to be a treat for them! Argghh.
