This short book considers the school days of our children. The years
at school pass so quickly and yet they have such a profound influence
on their lives later on. The importance of considering and being
fully aware of what in fact is happening during a ‘normal’ school
day is underlined.
In the various chapters the author talks about school bags, mobile
phones, wet days, dry days, the school buildings, the colour schemes,
space, desks, teachers, methods of instruction, our children’s friends.
He looks at our children’s capabilities, habits, gifts and intelligence
and the meaning of success. The many outside influences that impinge
on our children’s lives are also exposed.
