How do I deal with an overly-concerned parent?


"One thing which actually infantalises women is the inappropriateness of referring to mothers as 'mum'" Great comment - is this "mum" business something that is taught during training - I find it incredibly patronising. Parents have names - just ask them what they want to be called - it takes only a few seconds.
