The most unpleasant aspect of the Nanny state, that afflicts us all, is the creeping sense of fear that now permeates our society; brought about by never ending Nanny campaigns about the dangers of food, fat, smoking, drink, crime, accidents etc and the compliant headline grabbing media that seek to reinforce Nanny's message.
It should therefore come as no surprise to learn that the fear which permeates adult society is being passed on to the next generation, as it is reported that scared parents have banned their children from cycling.
A staggering 81% of parents ban their children from cycling on their own, or allow them to do so only on their street.
Parents are fearful that their children will have an accident (accidents are part of growing up), they also claim that their children lack the confidence and skill to take to the road.
There are two very obvious reasons as to why their kids lack confidence:
1 They are not allowed to learn through error and mistakes, and are picking up their parents' fears.
2 They are not sent to classes designed to teach them how to cycle on the road.
These parents, by their actions, are breeding a nation of scared, overweight, lazy individuals.
