Lazy outlook to blame
You have to wonder where we are headed as a society when you read many children lack the fundamental skills that we once took for granted. Unfortunately, a lot of this has to do with “lazy” parenting.
Too many parents are more interested in looking at their smartphone than actually doing something with their kids.
We wonder why so many children are uncoordinated, overweight and obese.
To keep their kids quiet and entertained, these parents are more willing to buy them the latest electronic device to keep them entertained and out of their hair than actually read to them or take them outside and play with them.
In many modern households you would be lucky to find a ball, bike or book.
These parents don’t realise the importance of getting these basic skills right for their children’s future development. Joe Kovac, Prestons
