I remember as a lad, with my younger brother, wandering onto the airplane taxi areas at Heathrow Airport in the early 60s, while out plane spotting! LOL. They'd shoot you these days.
Also was taught to write 'Italic' style at school, in London, by a really kind and effective teacher.
I still get positive comments these days, when I do write something down.
We actually had a maths teacher who gave us some computer lessons. Well, he showed us how the binary system worked and how computers of the day used it. This was in the mid 60s, so go figure.
My oldest grandson is quite at home with his iPad, etc, even without instruction. Gulp!
I touched on writing skills with my daughters, when they were small, now, I see my grandchildren write clearly, so I like to think that my efforts rubbed off. ;)
In my opinion, it's a good idea to explain how things were to offspring, don't know why. Guess I'm just an old sentimental.
