Modern life leads to more depression among childrenwhere they bemoan:
...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...Adjective city:The words are as ugly as they are meaningless.
complex socio-cultural problem
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.
