wholesome I apologise if I was paranoid. If you had actually read that thread you would know I did actually write from the viewpoint that I could not afford to send my DD to that school and was surprised when helping expat teachers to find an option that was right for their DCs (quite a large segment of their market these days) that preconceptions possibly not a million miles from your own were unfounded. I was not the one that accused the other poster of being chippy, just challenged people trotting out the same old stereotypes, and the way in which you worded that post, which used some appalling rhetoric, suggested you harboured those sexist attitudes, and that it must be written from a male perspective. I there fore was genuinely suspicious when having taken time to write what I hope was an enlightening post here I recognised the user name. From time to time the Daily Mail does manufacture a story having fished here so I was genuinely suspicious .
