Few parents relish a trip to the lost property office, but it’s something we’re likely to have to do at least once during the course of our child’s time at school. They’ve got a lot of information to retain in that growing brain of theirs. Like the name of each of Henry VIII’s wives, and how many zeros there are in ten thousand. You can’t expect them to remember to bring their coat home every day too. So when the time comes to look through what’s been left behind or discarded, make sure your boy’s coat stands out from the pile.
