[ Post a Response | Tea Time ]
I cracked up...
because I asked Erin for a letter to her Papa (dh) when he went on his Washington DC Honor Flight and she did't put a stamp on it. The address was just to our house address and no person listed. She didn't use her return address on the envelope and then she neglected to sign the message. LOL! It came anyway. I probably posted about it at the time...a year ago...but it made me realize that today's youth depend on technology so much that they don't know these things and no one thinks to teach them. She pays bills on her phone so doesn't know how to write a check! It boggles the mind! I taught addressing envelopes when I taught, and when teaching cursive I showed the students it's importance using writing checks as a reason to know cursive...signing your name. However, by the time they graduate high school they won't remember that and probably won't remember cursive. sigh! But my grandchldren are the ones showing me what they don't know because of the reliance on technology. It could become a real problem for them if our technology fails us, or like Erin cannot send a snail mail.
I love that you all are teaching Thryi what she will miss when she gets into public school. They did tell kids they could not use text messaging shortcuts when they started getting papers turned in with text lingo. LOL!
