I wanted to show my boys the reality of other children’s lives. I have noticed that at times they do not realise how lucky they are, or acknowledge the privileged position that they find themselves in. They complain about school, about not having enough free time, not having enough spending money to buy something or about school food. In order to give the students some perspective, I found this video which shows the lives of families working in gold mines. This is quite a powerful video and message, however, I hope this will help them to realise how many good things they have in their lives and for them to be more positive next time they have these thoughts and feelings. After we discussed the subject in detail before the boys went to bed.
