This (which is the equivalent of 10 high school classrooms emptied) is shockingly bad for a so-called “developed country” in Europe.
On top of the poorly managed / under-resourced schools and the dangerous roads it now leads to multicultural families leaving England with their babies and children or the mother and children returning to their home country (splitting up the family) – which is also bad – babies and children are valuable and there is a global shortage of them.May 26, 2016 at 12:41 pm #982512tryptameanieParticipant
Kidsa have a lot of shot to deal with and their young minds can react very badly.May 30, 2016 at 9:43 pm #982516
being 18 my self and just going through school. there is really a lot of pressure for peole of this age group.May 31, 2016 at 3:29 pm #982514
teaching young ones how to cope is paramount it also say’s something about everyone, because best lessons are by “setting an example” maybe we don’t handle the pressure eitherJune 1, 2016 at 1:48 pm #982515
At 18 the pressure applied by peers, parents and personal is ridiculous I recommend that A: have a destination for your life for sure but don’t have a set path just know where your heading and B: accept that you are going to change your mind. Pressure isn’t about handling it, it’s about allowing/not allowing it to affect you, look at those who appear to “work well under pressure” they are hiding the stress and with practise you don’t allow it to actually effect you.
Oh and Tag have a good life enjoy every moment and try to see beauty and wonder in every thing you do.

related to this I saw a report about the EU voting where some campaign group identifed that from 2004-2014 there were 475 000 live births in the UK to mothers of foreign nationalities.
These figures are collected by the hospitals and published by the NHS/Office of National Statistics (every other country in the world does the same) – they get auditeed by the EU (or other equivalent organisations such as ASEAN) and the UN for planning healthcare and education requirements.
By law a child resident in the UK must attend formal education starting from age 5 (this is a much lower age than elsewhere in Europe), so around half these kids would be likely to have reached school age.
Yet in the last 5 years I have read many reports about schools (in particular junior schools) being merged or closed down altogether in many parts of Britain due to a lack of children to fill them, low birth rates and the population particularly outside cities getting older – which does indeed suggest these the families (or at least the mothers and children) are removing the children from the UK to their home nations or perhaps elsewhere in Europe with better standards of childcare and education.
The current kerfuffle over migration is overshadowing a wider problem of a global baby shortage; especially in Europe and the Asian countries (it is no coincidence that China has recently abandoned the one child per family policy and other Asian nations have stopped enforcing the death penalty for minor drugs offences). However wars in the Middle East, economic problems and the not unrelated loss of 4 (or 5?) full passenger aircrafts through either deliberate actions or neglect (or in some cases both) has not helped things one bit; whole families and young people of child bearing age from well educated multicultural communities have perished in these crashes.
I’ve recently been watching a German educational TV programme aimed at children (though popular with all ages) called “Die Sendung mit der Maus” – this year they follow the progress of a refugee family who have settled in Germany. The focus is on a young girl around age 9/10 (the target age for the TV show; and about as far as my German stretches) although she has two sisters and a younger brother. This week they showed how they queue up and register for the visas; and what school is like for the younger people. The young lass’s German is probably better than mine; and her older sister who a few months ago was having extra tuition has now gone to Gymnasium which in Northern Europe is not just a place for sports but an entire high school for the more intelligent youngsters.
This is of course positive for this family, Germany and Europe but sadly a lot of business ownera and politicians use the spirit and work ethic of the refugees to set them up in competition with the locals for jobs (sometimes they don’t even really want to do that but economic pressures from outside force it upon them). It is this ruthless competition (not the concept of migration by itself) which causes a great deal of all the trouble in the world.June 2, 2016 at 9:41 am #982513tryptameanieParticipant
