Don't, just don't go into town on the school holidays with your children. Not even so they can spend their birthday money.
It is hazardous to your health... and theirs. There is a strong possibility of strangulation.
Glad I wasn't the only haggard harrassed looking mother shuffling zombie like down the high street devoid of shops. Unless of course you fancy a coffee, want to get your nails done or a new mobile phone.
