Daddy, how do you spell “patronising”?

Further proof that society is dumbing down comes in the form of the Dad Pack, a government-funded scheme where A5-size cards containing advice on taking children to the playground and coping with a lack of sex after their baby's birth are handed out to new dads.
It strikes me that any man who needs this pack must lack an extended family, didn’t attend ante-natal classes, and clearly isn’t communicating with the mum-to-be. It’s a patronising piece of rubbish possibly born of the idea that there are too many deadbeat dads out there, who wouldn’t be inclined to read this in the first place.
