Thats the one thankyou, I looked for ages and I couldn't find it.

once upon a time - children stayed home with mum, hovering around her skirts and taking part in things that happened in the home..... just like they do with a childminder and I would say that the majority of my generation and older have all learned perfectly well - I went into school (apparently) knowing my abc's. numbers, colours etc.

We need to get parents away from thinking that the only place a child learns is a school-type environment.
