Brotherly Love


Long journey. Children staring out of the window. DS stirs.

DS: (to younger sister): You know what we're doing is illegal.

DD: What?

DS: Yeah, home education is illegal.

DD: No, it isn't. It isn't is it Mum?

Mum: No. It's perfectly legal. The law says that a child must be educated in school or otherwise.

DS: Yes, that's what I mean. In school or else.

DD: (squeaking). MUMMMMM....

Poor DD. She does have it hard sometimes and I do feel for her in these sort of situations. It was very hard not just to laugh whilst she sat there clearly terrified!
