    I feel sorry for the children. Umm I must have missed something, since when did India become a traditional name? Oh and if my child is ever deemed good enough by her and invited to play I will have to say "no sorry, your children are wearing the most horrid clothes and I don't want my child thinking that's acceptable".

    The highlight of that article is she's posed and poised in all those pictures probably thinking people will be looking at her thinking "now THAT is a mother who's got themselves together"

    Instead in of going bahahaha ******.

    Wow...

    I think "shallow" comes to mind.

    I will not be dictating to my children who they must be friends with.

    She is teaching her children that if they don't perform, they are unacceptable to her... How frightening must that be for them, to have the threat of banishment hanging over their heads...

    Oh dear.

    At the risk of trusting the Daily Mail too much, she sounds somewhat... aspirational...

    That article made me cry.

    I WAS the child who was never invited to anything, for reasons beyond my control. We were the family who everybody judged, and we were the kids wearing uniforms donated by the school because we were so poor.

    I know what it is like to have to beg and plead for simple things that other kids take for granted, like being in the school band, because the teachers and parents feel that my taking part would tarnish their reputation. And I'll be buggered if any of that was in any way my fault.

    It just wasn't. My sister and I were the highest achievers in our classes all the way through to Year 8. And yet, every award ceremony there was still a hint of surprise in the teacher's voice as she read our names out for our awards.

    We were clever, polite, well-behaved, and clean - and we had LOADS of friends at school, but so often when one had a birthday or a sleepover, we would be the only ones not invited.

    I can understand discouraging friendships with kids involved in dangerous or criminal activities when they are teenagers, but I think it is truly disgusting for adults to discriminate against innocent little kids like that. What a joke.

    I was wondering that myself! DS has a name she would probably consider 'educated' but is easily distracted & is one of those kids that looks messy as soon as we leave the house!

    She is disliked by most people in the UK and has exhibited some very 'unclassy' behavior.

    I hardly think she should be one to judge!

    I'm sorry, but I wouldn't let me daughter have playdates with children whose mother couldn't even clean up under her lounge... Did you see the mess under there?!

    I wouldn't actually judge on that, I probably have sultanas under mine.

    I understand where she's coming from, to an extent, but I don't agree.

    You want the best for your children, but you also want to teach them to be inclusive of people from all walks of life, something that this Mum isn't doing.
