    She's no better than anyone else....

    Her best goal would be to ensure her daughters don't end up like her O_o

    Hrmm. I think this woman is a bit of a nutter, but in *some* areas, I get where she's coming from.

    For example, we go out of our way to find schools that 'meet our standards' and yes some of that does come down to other children at the school. I don't think it's inherently a bad idea to try and up the odds of your child befriending another with similar family values/standards, but I do agree that it can be taken to the extreme, such as the woman in this story.

    Imagine being the kid who was "targeted" by this woman as a potential friend for her child! Sounds somewhat predatory, lol! I picture her out in her preppy little suit, carrying a spear, hunting for acceptable children!

    And her "two precious daughters"...no mention of the boy! He may not be in school but I assume he has friends too!

    This woman sounds like ... to put it bluntly ... a massive w@nker! And a dictator to her poor children who may never know how to think for themselves. As if little India (?) would have cared if a fellow classmate gets to school on time or has a perfect uniform unless her mother had planted that seed.

    And basing a child's future on their name? *shakes head in disbelief* Her poor kids. I wonder if she has a husband? He probably wasn't allowed out of his dungeon to be a part of the article.
