Lesson 2: ignoring your children is the best way to punish bad behaviour

Or at least nobody else will realise you’re to blame. Maintain a lofty aloofness at all times, especially on public transport. Your children will learn from their mistakes, probably when an irate member of the public gets fed up of being kicked by the child climbing on the seat next to him or her, and decides to administer some vigilante discipline. Voila! Your child will learn some manners, and you don’t have to be the bad guy. Note – taking along a newspaper to read (preferably broadsheet for blanket coverage) will help you maintain disinterest.
