“School’s out for summer, school’s out forever, and I’m bored to pieces”, as Alice Cooper once sang. It was probably the godfather of shock rock’s most chilling song, capturing as it did the genuine horror of realising that the school holidays are here and you are now faced with having to entertain your own kids for two months.

The oldest two are fine — the 19-year-old has a job, while the 14-year-old has little or no interest in any suggestion I have about how he could while away the summer. Read a book? Go for a walk? Meet your pals? He has the internet, so he has no need for any of those things.
