Two newspapers in one weekend and a forecast of snow!

Last week, for me, was a bit like snow in the South West. Unexpected, exciting and just a little bit scary.

Because last weekend, Saturday to be precise, the MOB appeared in both the Guardian and the Times.

For the Guardian I wrote a feature entitled ‘Mad about the boys’, a piece dedicated to the almost sacred relationship between a boy and his stick. To find out more about why they may be mere pieces of wood to you, but they’re oh-so-not to a son, read here… http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2013/jan/12/hannah-evans-mother-of-boys

The Times meanwhile, ran an extract of ‘MOB Rule’, alongside ‘Bringing up boys: a parent’s guide to getting it right’. Much more academically supported advice than my entirely anecdotal tales, I delved into the guide. The only bit I found slightly concerning is that the daily calorific intake of a teenage boy is around 2775 (almost as much as Olympic athletes); I therefore picture myself in five years time pushing not one, but two trolleys. To read on, go here (but you’ll need to pay!)… http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/life/families/article3654616.ece

  1. As an MoB myself, I enjoyed reading both articles. I think you are totally right about the futility of banning sticks. I distracted my youngest away from such play with lego, only to find him building a gun…Looking forward to reading your book in its entirety.

  2. Wow – published and in 2 papers. You are having a busy week. Well done you.
