"MUM… TELL JACK HE LOST."
It's 9 pm, and my kids are bickering about the rules of table tennis. In hindsight, they have been arguing about the rules since the September school holidays when my bored teen 're-zoned' the dining table for table tennis.
Whilst some parents might rush in, squashing the argument and preaching the virtues of cooperation, I pretend not to hear and stay in my office drinking tea.
Why? Well, I’m a firm believer that a little healthy competition between siblings is a good thing.
