Because why on earth would you want to draw such negative attention to yourself, both as a parent and on a business level?

Stories in the media are often designated to make you angry, frustrated, and hopeless.

What I find laughable about that story is that I live on a HA estate and those parents that don't care about growing feet being supported and the child having good ankle support, buy Hunters and Uggs.

It goes to show that crap parenting exists in all I come groups.

I know loads of people like this but they aren't daft enough to brag about it in the media.

It's a total non story imo.

How can a holiday be 'lucrative" from the pov of the holidaymaker?! That word has been used completely out of context. Bah.

Yeah, I thought that ViviPru. Crap article all round really.

The little girl is wearing boots from Clarkes. My old charge had the exact same pair. The article is not quite what it seems!

If they spent £25k on 7+ holidays then they weren't 'luxury' holidays, imo. An average of £3.5k per holiday wouldn't get you world class show stopping luxury, ime.
