We  stop talking about global warming and concentrated on teaching our children how to do things for themselves – such as banging nails into bits of wood and making boats to float on a stream… Pull apart motors to see how they work, then put them back together so they do work… Show them how to plant seeds and water them so that they grow and eat the produce… teach our kids some gosh darn common sense!

    common sense would be nice, and I totally agree that so much has been lost! Kids don’t seem interested in many of the things we used to do as children, which is sad. Once things have settled down here a little I am going to be making a concerted effort to involve the kids in our world – growing our own veges, caring for our pets, getting out and seeing everything there is to see. Roll on the nicer weather!

    I think a lot of it has to do with leaving kids in front of the telly or computer to keep them entertained instead of telling them to go outside and use their imagination. This was exactly the same conversation I was having with my step father in law yesterday morning, so kind of weird to have this question pop up in Plinky!
