Call The Child Protection Brigade


Why I do believe this is quite the meanest thing I have ever seen. Clearly the inventors of the Baby Alice Thumb Guard came from the Mrs Beeton School of child rearing...

"When finger-sucking is one of these bad habits, the fingers are sometimes rubbed with bitter aloes or some equally disagreeable substance... Nursemaids do well to repeat to the parents faithfully and truly the defects they observe in the dispositions of very young children. If properly checked in time, evil propensities maybe eradicated."

Evil propensities indeed! That Mrs Beeton has got a lot to answer for.
