Take kids to the bush – they’ll thank you

Getaway (South Africa) - - Inbox - – Mar­i­lyn Fried­land, Cape Town

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.
