    Do carry on with the virtue signalling. You really care about the snowflakes.
    This thread of yours is virtue signalling 1.0.

    I raise independents not dependents.

    However, I am amazed by how hard the kids work at secondary school. Maybe it is just the twins's school - one of the top 30 comprehensives in the country.
