WELL, it's the time of year when all we ever get is neighbours moaning and letters of complaint. Why? Because the nice weather is here and the children are out playing again. What is expected of children in this day and age? If they say what they think or have a point to make, it's wrong. They play in the garden or street and it's wrong. They talk too loudly, raise their voices when playing or passing in the street, and it's wrong. Even sitting on the pavement talking to each other, etc, it's wrong.I was a child once. My elders spoke to me with respect and I spoke to them in the same way. But we could play in our gardens and in the street and make a noise but we never got moaned or shouted at and our parents never got letters of complaint. Why?We used to go to the fields, beach, etc., on our own but it's not safe now to let your children do this. But whatever our children do it is never right. No, they are not angels and yes, they do do wrong but haven't we all at sometime in our life? Please just sit down remember when your children were young! Were they really that good? Somehow I don't think so.NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED
