“I always thought it was good for hand eye coordination,” said another mum. “Luckily nobody in my play groups have suffered flashbacks from cotton mills.”
A mum has asked for advice on a popular nursery rhyme.
In the latest topic of debate on Mumsnet , ‘coconutella’ posed the question: “To believe ‘Wind the Bobbin Up’ is inappropriate and to ask my child’s nursery not to sing it.”
If you’re not aware of the children’s ditty, it’s a simple, repetitive song about winding up a bobbin while weaving/sewing.
Coconutella thinks the song is outdated and offensive to the memory of those who toiled for little pay in the textile towns in the north of England.
