Oh baby, that's a bad photo

I was so alarmed by the photograph of a man holding two babies upside down by their feet ("Join forces with problem parents", TESpro, 22 February) that I seriously wondered if the editor has considered what message it conveys.

I now cannot take anything written in the article seriously because I keep thinking about these babies. If I saw anyone behaving like this, I would report them to the local authority or the NSPCC children's charity. You will probably reply that it was done in Photoshop, but that's not the point. A photograph is worth a thousand words and this image is lodged in my mind.
