Learn to use your hands

2017-03-02 06:01

IT is very important to learn to make and fix things with your own hands.

With us old folk, things like gardening and sewing were part of the syllabus and were taught at school.

Some young adults today cannot even sew the button of a shirt on and have to pay someone to do it. They don’t know how to use a hammer and have to pay someone to do something that will take only five minutes to complete.

Since it is not taught at school anymore, some enterprising old people need to start weekend classes and teach knitting, sewing, how to use a hammer and how to hold a spade.
