I thought she was a deserving winner on Masterchef. Unlike Liz McClaren who has got to be the most unconvincing winner, ever.

This is the reason why restaurants, who are charging customers for the privilege of enjoying a relaxing meal out, should have a policy in place for dealing with such parents. It is unacceptable for...

No it's not extremely rare at all. I don't blame people for being bad parents because they have a difficult child. I blame them for allowing that child to disrupt other diners in a restaurant. If...
