Sometimes it gets pretty crowded in the naughty corner...
Babies George and Cleopatra, 14-year-old Peter, 38-year old Brian, Nigel the cat, Credence the dog and Monique, the yellow bird - all of them have spent time in the naughty corner. It's meant to make them think about their behaviour, but they've turned it into a place to have fun. The only member of the family who hasn't spent time in the naughty corner is Maureen aka mum. She couldn't be naughty if she tried. She thinks being good makes you a better person but perhaps it just makes your life dull and grey.
