Know your enemy

The Friday Club theme this week is 'Parenting Tips'. My parenting style is very much make-it-up-as-you-go-along so I don't feel particularly qualified to offer any practical tips.

I have, however, been conducting a series of tests which I feel would be of benefit to parents. Allow me to present the Stickometer (patent pending).
The results of the stickability scale are calculated by the following: ease of removal from carpet, child's face, your favourite jumper, hair, next-door's cat, and also by the 'half-life': how long you will still be finding it lurking in the aforementioned places. I hope it will enable parents to make an informed choice, e.g. At a friend's house with nice cream curtains? Steer clear of the readybrek, go for peanut butter and hope for the best.

If there's anything that should be added to the scale please let me know. Right, back to the lab for me.
