How do you know they are online 15 hours a day?

Well done for your intelligence and thank you for your insightful comments.

Come on girls, listen to the clever lady.

how nice of you

Nice post, welcome to mumsnet.

EccentricaGallumbats Thu 08-Oct-09 09:14:28

Gosh, I knew there was something I should do.

Thank you so much for your helpful and constructive comments.

I will do as you suggest and be back later to let you know if it worked.

Once again, many many thanks. I couldn't have done it without you.

nice hmm

wait a minute, are you suggesting I interact with my children? sounds just plain dangerous to me.
Do I have to actually talk to them or will just nodding in their direction do?
Also, when I change their nappy (and I have been wanting to ask this for ages) does the picture go on the front or the back?
Been waiting for someone to come along and answer these questions for ages

Feeling guilty?

Do you suppose you fall in to the category I was referring to? Recognise any other posters? To whom do you think I might have been referring, if anyone specific of course.

I used to use Empathy shampoo and conditioner, but the line was discontinued.

I find that since I reduced my time on MN from 15 hours to 14 hours and 49 minutes, my relationship with my children has improved drastically.

Now I have time to switch on the cartoon channel, bung a ready meal in the microwave and ask them how their day at school was.

Not in the slightest - just feeling that you're a bit of a bitch!

I have a fantastic relationship with my DDs, thank you very much. I have issues with them, just the same as everyone else does, but they do not stem from me doing things for myself like using the internet.

Litchick Thu 08-Oct-09 09:24:45

Hmmm...there is a bit of a point though.
Some people do seem to spend an inordinate amount of time on the internet, or watching TV.
Sometimes there seems a disconnection with real life.
