    Thanks for the plug and pingback Stilgherrian. Much appreciated. We do mollycoddle and overprotect the kids. They will lack resilience, handle fear poorly and be able to thnk within the box. Cheers, John.

    @John Larkin: My pleasure. A lot of the thoughts were triggered by the report that Year 12 students broke down in tears because an exam question was in a different form from previous years.

    If they’re that incapable of dealing with new situations, when the world is changing faster than ever before, we’re in trouble!
