Four-letter folly; Dear LINDA WALES' TOP AGONY AUNT.

QI've been seeing someone for about eight months. I'm a divorced single mother of three sons and I was delighted to find some adult company and hoped the relationship would go somewhere. He can't stand the behaviour of my children, though. They're just typical boys. They aren't bad, but they are mischievous and noisy and my older one, who is seven, keeps interrupting conversations so we can watch him sing and dance. My boyfriend shouted at him the other day, using four letter words, but then carried on as usual. I can't do that, but don't know how to sort it out.

L.M. Danescourt, Cardiff A Nice.

This is someone who can 'carry on as usual' because he's labouring under the misapprehension that he comes before your children. He's used four-letter words to a small boy without batting an eyelid. That's a little lad who was literally 'performing' because he can see someone's monopolising his mum and he's not having it. If you were hoping for a happy long-term or even lifelong relationship with old Potty Mouth, don't hold your breath. You and the kids are a four-pack. I'd use some carefully selected four-letter words like, door and exit; but not in front of the children.
