15 Important Things Kids Should Know by Age 15 A few years ago, my own mum gave me a copy of a parenting book. I was both amused and highly indignant at the same time. Now a few years have passed and I must say I have on more than one occasion resorted to looking through “that” book! Lets face it, I am not Supermom.
