Myleene Klass: I Want My Kids To Have Yo-Yos, Not Kindles

In an interview with Fabulous magazine, Myleene Klass has spoken out about her decision to share *those* emails from the mothers of children at her daughter's school.

Myleene hit the headlines recently after she used social media to share emails which she received from parents of children who attend the same school as her daughter, in which parents were asked to contribute £10 towards gifts including a Kindle and a desk for the girls' birthdays.

The principal of the school responded to the fuss with a newsletter sent to parents in which she urged:

"If you can't tweet anything nice, don't tweet anything at all."

The Express reports:

Speaking to Fabulous magazine, she said: "This is why I keep getting myself into trouble. I can't keep my mouth shut, but that's who I am. I want my children to receive yo-yos and give yo-yos, not Kindles. Being happy is not about stuff.

"I know it doesn't make me popular but this is what I stand for. I wasn't raised like that."

We'd love to hear your views on this - do you share Myleene's affliction, and find yourself unable to suppress disagreements with other mums on a regular basis? Or do you prefer to keep your opinions to yourself in favour of keeping the peace at the school gates?

And when it comes to Kindles or yo-yo's for birthday presents, which would you prefer your kids to get?

What do you think?
