Won't somebody think of the children?

A lot of people are very cross. So cross they have written to The Torygraph:
Modern life leads to more depression among children
where they bemoan:
"professionals and academics from a range of backgrounds" think parents aren't raising their children is the approved manner.
I hope they are better at child raising than they are at letter writing: the fragment
...regular interaction with the real-life significant adults in their lives...
should not be thought, let alone written.
fast-moving hyper-competitive culture....overly academic test-driven primary curriculum...
complex socio-cultural problem
Adjective city:The words are as ugly as they are meaningless.
One of the signatories, Professor Susan Greenfield, stated on Newsnight that there was a danger of
"Icons replacing Ideas"
I don't know what this means. I suspect she doesn't, either. One of my correspondents writes:
This meaningless soundbite leads me to wonder not at the declining standards in our children but the declining standards in our experts. Children have a refreshing habit of ignoring people who talk crap as adults do we loose this wonderful gift?
Quite so.
