A. The arrival of a new baby is always an exciting time in any family. However, quite often, juggling work and family commitments while coping with very young, pre-school children can be very difficult for modern mums. How do young mothers handle their position of being the main carer in families with young children today?
B. Women who are full-time working mothers often have to use private child care. Wealthier parents in Europe may hire a nanny, or an au pair. A nanny is usually a trained child-care worker who takes care of young children, whereas an au pair is often a young person looking to spend time travelling who agrees to help in the home in exchange for food and accommodation.
C. Parents who work can put pre-school children into a nursery school or playgroup. Both of these can be quite expensive, although sometimes the government provides them and they are free. Occasionally, places of work such as factories and businesses provide creche facilities for young children. However, this is still not very common in Europe.
D. Working women who cannot afford the expense of private child care and who don’t get a place at a free state nursery school often have to rely on the help of family members. Across Europe, grandparents are the main unpaid carers of young children during working hours. Retired people give the economy a big helping hand by providing a free service that helps keep women working.
E. Friends can be a great support network for some working mums. Many young mums take turns looking after friends’ children. This method of child care probably applies more to women who have part-time jobs rather than ordinary full-time jobs, otherwise they would not have time to organise taking turns. But if there’s a group of mums who can each spare one day, it’s a great way to organise child-care.
F. Some mums choose not to work at all while their children are very young. Not all couples can afford to lose one income though. But for those that can, there are some women who prefer to be full-time carers of their children at home than passing that role onto someone else at a nursery school, for instance.
G. Not all primary carers are women. In some homes, it is the man who takes over the main role of child care. This is especially true for the husbands of high-flying career women who earn large salaries. On the whole, though, it is still women, all around the world, who are likely to be the main carer for young children.

The modern tourist industry started with the British seaside resort in the late 19th century. But the story begins a little earlier, among the upper classes of British society, who began to be interested in swimming, or ‘bathing’ as it was known then, for health reasons in the 18th century. Spa towns like Bath began to attract growing numbers of visitors. Brighton, with its Royal connections, gained a name as a place for pleasureseekers. However, it wasn’t until the middle of the 19th century that other sections of society were able to travel for leisure purposes.
The Industrial Revolution saw the creation of an urban working class. Workers in factories in cities such as Manchester were allowed to take one week’s holiday per year. With the coming of the railways in the 1840s, they could afford to travel. For many of them, their holiday choice was Blackpool.
Until the late 18th century, Blackpool had been a tiny, sleepy hamlet of only a few hundred residents. But with a seven mile long beach of fine golden sand, it wasn’t long before local businessmen began to see the possibility of a future for Blackpool as a holiday resort. The first horse-drawn coaches began to run from Manchester in the 1780s. By the end of the 19th century, Blackpool was Britain’s most popular seaside town.
In order to attract visitors, the town has constantly expanded and developed. A long, wide promenade was built along the sea-front, as well as three piers and Blackpool’s most famous building, Blackpool Tower, which is 150 metres, made of steel and iron and looks similar to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. By the i 1920s, Blackpool had enough accomodation and attractions to welcome up to 8 million visitors a year, j In the early 1950s, up to 17 million visitors a year went there on holiday.
. In the same way as the railways brought Blackpool its wealth, the age of the aeroplane created problems for the town. With the availability of cheap flights to sunny beaches abroad, British tourists swapped wet and
1 windy Blackpool for the sunshine of Spain. This was the birth of the foreign package holiday in the late 60s.
But the British seaside resort has not died completely. Although they no longer attract tourists for long ‘ holidays, British seaside resorts like Blackpool are still popular with day-trippers and weekenders. Blackpool ■ has a reputation as an entertainment centre with many theatres and variety shows. It also has a lively night-life that attracts many young people and is still popular with grandparents who are keen to enjoy the freSh sea air.
