As the school holidays begin in England and Wales, joining Northern Ireland and Scotland, UK parents are already wondering how they are going to entertain their children – and, in these difficult times, how they are going to afford it.

Australian comedian Jimmy Reese did a sketch showing that at least the first problem is anything but universal.

This is such a delicious box of treats. I know what you’re thinking – they’re for you.

Well, think again – they are not for you. They’re for kids, okay?

Does everyone … get out of here!

They’ll be your lifeline, because after three days of virtually no one listening to you, you’ll use them as bribes for just about every human function imaginable.

Both parents and parents responded to his wise words.

Whenever I find myself thinking about having kids, I just visit a mate with a bunch of slackers, it cures those thoughts quickly lol.

Ah, the “office” setting in the hallway… always makes me laugh. Seriously, who thinks ANY work is being done there?

Hahaha Jimmy you nailed it – chaos, endless cooking, fights and at least 1 cry – oh the joy!!

THIS IS TRUE EVERYWHERE!!! I’m in the United States and your comment about the bathroom being a playroom is CORRECT! Thank you Jimmy Reese for your HONEST humor. You are wonderful.

So true 🤦🏻‍♀️ my husband asked me yesterday if I’m looking forward to the convention 😳 I mean at least I’ll be cleaning and judging and dealing with crazy shit in a slightly warmer climate 🤪

“As a former teacher, I love school holidays. You never know what parents complain about. Just a couple of kids? It’s beautiful.”
