    lol IRL I tend to be on the healthier end compared to others around me. Who would have thought I was such a crap parent? But yeah, I don't think the forum is overly indicative of RL.

    I was one who said my kids never get store bought juice or soft drink...and they don't. But I have reasons that extend way beyond 'argh sugary poison that must not enter my kid's bodies so I can be a perfect mum on the net.'
    As for NAPLAN, I honestly don't know anyone IRL who does care about NAPLAN. So I would look at this thread and think it is a true representation of society...based on my anecdotal evidence.

    I find I'm in the huge minority IRL when it comes to sugar for my kids. Every interaction with other parents and their kids, without fail, I find that my DH and I are the only ones who are strict about sugar. Whether it's childcare, birthday parties, cafes/restaurants, friend's houses, Instagram feeds, even my son's soccer team - he is the only one who isn't allowed a killer Python at the end of every game. It's gotten to the point where I feel uncomfortable if another parents sees or hears me saying no to my children when they ask for a lolly or ice cream.

    So yeah, BH definitely isn't indicative of what the majority of parents do IRL
