Teens shouldn’t be spoon-fed
3:55pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in Letters
THANK you for printing that glorious letter from Mr Ken Davies about all the activities and hobbies our teenagers could take up which cost under £6 or which are free.
It gave my husband and I hope.
The following week an anonymous local teacher cried through your paper: "this is 2013, let’s keep it modern!"
By definition, a teenager is an immature adult; not mature at aged 21.
He or she can gain this badge of distinction by learning maturity from his or her elders and betters.
Since when did the tail wag the dog?
Teenagers, unlike babies and toddlers, should not be spoon-fed and this means offering them the option of learning traditional skills, many of which were cited by Mr Davies and the skills of modern technology.
Not everything modern is good.
However, I hasten to add, traditional teachers have been producing regular wonderful results over the years.
Computer games can cost exorbitant amounts of money, which is not always affordable.
