Subject: RE: BS: The Drugging of our Children
Not sure I am really following you after all Lizzie.

I do think much could be made more interesting in school and I am aware of differences in teaching and areas. Singing together for example helped give me a love of music but my Skinners time in secondary school even though I got as far as O level before failing to turn up for the exams as riding a motor bike was more interesting could have knocked music out of me but I suppose I was in my own rebellious stage there.

Some things educationally, I regret now.

Some things I was forced to do I am grateful for. The simplest example being forced into the kitchen by mother. Although circumstances may be entirely different, I think I wind up in a similar state to Richard on this. I got very basics, I can do a roast (made myself a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings once when I was on my own) a start with get some oil, fry some onions, etc. and make a mince meal, stew or whatever is familiar. I would never have to be dependant on shop bought microwaves or takeaways. I learned enough. I am far from sure I enjoyed it at the time but I am glad I was made to learn "survival cooking".
