POLL: Have you been bored by your children?

Commenting on provocative comments made last week about children, yesterday the editor-in-chief of influential lifestyle magazine Elle, Lorraine Candy, admitted she found playing with her kids boring. In a contentious newspaper column she said playing with her children was 'exhausting' - and admitted ignoring them when they complained they were bored. We're joined by journalist and author Catherine Cooper who agrees with Lorraine, arguing any mum who hasn't felt bored playing with their children is either 'lying or deluded'. Mother-of-two Denise Sumpter on the other hand finds playing with her children 'engaging and exciting'and says she 'feels sorry' for mothers who find it dull.

Vote in our poll before 11:30am and watch today's show to see the results.
