Letter writing...how retro!

Random Mum

Your post made me wonder what we are doing to our young people. I'm showing my age here but in S3 I would have loved to write a letter & would have done the task confidentally. I also knew what a food mixer was and how to use one.

I guess your third years don't see any need for letters (or food mixers), and that seems a shame. But are we equipping them properly for the lives they will lead? I'm not so sure.

Is life too "in the moment" and do we demand instant results too often? Is there a place for slower-paced things like letter writing and home baking?

I'd like to think there is, but then maybe I'm just old-fashioned!
