Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

BERNIE Whit­worth’s let­ter in last week’s edi­tion was so good. Maybe some of to­day’s spoilt chil­dren and their par­ents should read it.

It is so very true and I can re­late to this piece of his­tory. We mostly walked to and from school in all weathers car­ry­ing heavy satchels and dressed in suit­able cloth­ing for the weather. We used our brains for home­work, no cal­cu­la­tors, iPhones or Google.

I can­not be­lieve how many chil­dren who are not even old enough for school have iPads; take those items away from chil­dren to­day and they would be ab­so­lutely stuck.
