Go on, they deserve it after a year of mediocrity. Chris Brown bought his daughter a monkey and it had us wondering - if you had all the money in the world (and zero shame) would you spoil your kids rotten?
Plus, as parents it's basically written into the job description that you’re also a personal assistant to your kids. But is there a way to quit?
And we spoke to the lovely Sophie Falkiner about how she walks the screen-time line, because - praise be - it's not all destined to ruin your kids.
With thanks to the lovely Sophie Falkiner
