Kids these days


Apparently more than half kids who start school cannot count to 20, do not know the alphabet, cannot hold a pencil correctly, cannot write their own name or recognise colours. A quarter cannot tell the difference between a number and a letter. Given my daughter - who can do all the above with ease - counted to 130 today before she got bored, it looks like she’ll do well at school once she turns five then.

Atrocious. Can't blame teachers for this one, it is clearly poor parenting.
