Could YOUR child climb a tree? Many, we contend, would have no idea how, while others, it’s fair to say, would have little or no inclination. Give them an Xbox (or something similar) and it’d be a different matter . . . That children have, in general terms, become so detached from the great outdoors...

Is YOUR child overweight? There is, it appears, a reasonable chance of it. You see, according to figures that have been released in recent days, almost one in four under-fives in Britain can be considered as such. This is, for obvious reasons, quite a concern.

Think about men in the media and the picture that is painted often isn’t the prettiest. Operation Yewtree. Domestic abuse. Violent celebrities. Sexual Predators.

It has been described as a ‘hidden epidemic’. It is time to bring it into the open. The ‘it’ in question is the impact that social media, video games, image sharing platforms and digital communications in other forms are having on children and adolescents and, in particular, their mental health.

To be honest, hip-hop isn’t our thing. Neither is rap. For teenagers right now, though, this seems to be the music that matters. Rap and hip-hop are big.
