Nanny knows no bounds when imposing her "zero tolerance" approach on her charges.
Ever conscious that we are not all the same, Nanny seeks to ensure that those who are in her view the most "disadvantaged" have the rules bent in their favour.
Instead of seeking to help people strive to improve themselves, or face reality, Nanny seeks to wrap everyone in cotton wool.
This of course does them immense harm in the long run, as people become dependent on the state and incapable of facing life's shitty realities.
One recent example of this absurd approach to life comes in the form of Nanny's ban on Mother's Day cards.
Helen Starkey, headmistress of Primary School in Carmarthen West Wales, has banned the making of Mother's Day cards because she doesn't want to upset children without a mother.
"More than five per cent of children here
are separated from their birth mother
and have either no contact or no regular contact with their mother.
This decision was not taken because of any philosophical attitude
towards the celebration of Mothering Sunday,
but to protect a significant number of children in our school.
In all our dealings with these children
we have to exercise great sensitivity.
I am not against Mother's Day
but no time will be devoted to making cards in lessons."
What about the 95% of children who do have mothers?
Why can't the 5% without mothers make a card for the person who is acting as mother?
A ridiculous move, guaranteed to make the 5% feel more self conscious and less able to face life's harsh realities.
Isn't that child abuse of sorts?
