    When is a bombhole not a bombhole??

    Possibly when the parent is being a little overly sensitive?

    I calls ’em sink-holes, as that’s what most of them actually are!

    Seriously, educate the 4 year old what a lot of them were made by (along with clay pits etc) and call them what everyone else will call them….bombholes……don’t make the child seem like some sort of nerd to his peers!

    This.

    You have an opportunity to educate your child about WW2, the Blitz etc and plant the seed early that war is horrific and maybe create a passion for history in them which they’ll take through school and likely excel at as a subject.

    I know most of us want to preserve a sense of innocence in our kids for as long as possible but if they’re asking questions about it then they’re probably ready to hear the answer.

    Best advice on parenting I ever read was in a psychiatric nurses office, it was the opening paragraph in a book on child development and it explained that the role of the parent is to provide a safe base from which the child can explore the world…. simple as that.

    Compared to a lot of the wishy washy nonsense floating around that really struck a chord as sensible advice.

    Call it something more child appropriate, like “fun hole” perhaps, or “glory hole”

    Brilliant…do this instead.

    Child to teacher:

    “Daddy and I went to the glory-hole today, it was dirty but we had fun”

    Cue social services on your door step the next day. 😆

    Crater is the word you’re looking for.

    Marl pits in Thetford Forest dug out in the deep and distant past for Fertilizer, the craters in Tunstall came from munitions and fuel jettisoned by damaged aircraft in WW2 as they made their way to the emergency landing runway at RAF Woodbridge.
