Take kids to the bush – they’ll thank you
My first read in your delightful publication is always Tyson Jopson’s ‘Inside Getaway’ column [page 25 this month]. It puts a smile on my face immediately! My penny’s worth about ‘Here’s Looking at You, Kid’ (May 2017) is that perhaps today’s ‘elders’ are rather inclined to allow their offspring to join partying friends instead of coercing them onto a family holiday for fear of them losing their friends. How interesting that, casting a reflective look back in time, he came to be grateful for being ‘forced’ onto those family excursions in the bushveld.
