This passage is about parenting.

Identify the tone of the paragraphs and explain how this tone is created. (3)

I am fed up listening to scaremongers talking about the E-coli virus, telling me my child should never visit a farm or come into contact with animals.  I am very weary of organisations that are dedicated to promulgating the idea that threats and dangers to children lurk everywhere.  I am sick of charities who on the one have attack overprotective parents and at the same time say children should never be left unsupervised in public places.

  1. Technique – Tone
    The writer creates a disappointed tone.
    The tone is created through the use of the repetition of “I am fed up..I am very weary..I am sick of….
    This suggests that there has been a series of let down’s that the writer is feeling personally affected by. This helps develop the argument that she feels she does not have a voice when it comes to parenting.
