We're well into Family Friendly 2012. Nearly Easter already. Not wanting to let the grass grow etc etc we are reviewing all the time what we can encourage our members to try. What are the things Mumsnetters want to see to make life easier for families? Last year's programme resulted in some fantastic new ideas for FF. Toilets in a bank (who'd have thought) and a whole new working contract for parents from O2. That won an innovation award unsurprisingly. Being a member of the FF programme isn't just a badge. We are asking companies to work with us to make the UK better for families so we'd really like to hear any of your ideas. What would you like to see? As a customer or as a member of staff. What needs to change? Tell us and we'll make sure we pass it on
More jobs fitted around parents. A new supermarket was opening near me recently. When I enquired about work shifts, I was told that if I wanted to work a 9am-3pm week, I would also have to work an evening (difficult to arrange as hubby is often away). When will employers start introducing more family friendly working patterns?
I would like to see a change in the children's menu-I can't see why they can't have small portions of the adult meal instead of only supposing they eat chicken nuggets and chips, fish fingers and chips etc.
