    Where these actually are (esp. recalcitrant fathers not enthusiastic about CSA demands) is quite another question.
    Me, make sweeping statements? As if I ever do that...
    OK, Mr Nitpicky. I'll re-phrase...'children who live in a two-parent family'. Better?

    And if we want to be really pedantic (as if!), all children have two parents, not just 'most'. The second parent may be dead or absent, but as far as I know, no cloned human exists yet.

      Ah, but the mad scientists haven't told us yet...

      PEDANTS' NEWS:
      all children have two parents sounds as if the same two unfortunate people are all children's parents! It's better as each child has two parents.

        True, I suppose. It's grammatically not unlike the notice at our local swimming pool which states : 'Competent swimmers must supervise non-swimmers at all times'. It seems a little hard on the competent swimmers who just came along to swim competently and did not expect to have to start supervising all the nuisances who couldn't swim.

        There's bound to be a law against it, anyway.

          It can be worse. Try explaining to a client about 'execution'; it sounds worse than it is, unless you live in 18th. Century France.
