Careers adviser at school told people either Farming, The Army or become a barrister.

Not a surprising really as he was a barrister in the army & his family owned a farm!!!!!

Worst advice I ever got has to be when a friend of mine said I should try Championship Manager. Buggered up my whole final year at college that did!

Not sure that I could call it the worst but the most stupidist....

Being told by a social worker when my son throw a paddy not to but into his bedroom (I would give him sleeping problems) but to sit him at the bottom of the stairs and make a big T with my hands tell him time out repeat several times and make him sit there for no more than 5 minutes...

His face was a picture when I said that I couldn't do that! As I lived in a bungalow and didn't have any stairs.

And I was right all along, I ended up with the social worker after pleas of help via the doctors... Help I got some twit who blamed my sons behaviour on me.... If they took note on what I was saying about the paddys when they happened lasted for hours, no real pattern to them and in between you couldn't ask for a better behaved child....

Ended up resolving the issue myself.... I monitored what he was eating over a period of time and bingo I found what was causing all the hassel.... Mainly Blue smarties or other sweetes/foods that contained blue colouring...
