Dear Kafi. My boyfriend and I do not have any children, but, altogether, we have ten nieces and nephews. Recently, I have noticed more and more that our brothers and sisters have trouble with the children and their education. Now, some remarks and advice have slipped out of my mouth a few times. Thereupon I was told in a quite angry way to keep out of this because I don’t have any children. But I meant it only well. Is it really like this? Are childless people not allowed to give any advice on child education? Daniela, 31
Well, yes, you may give advice on education. But then you shouldn’t be surprised if this finds little enthusiasm.
