Too poor to keep their children clean...UK 2018.

Post by Syl on Tue Jun 19, 2018 12:34 pm

First topic message reminder :

Why are families appearing to be struggling more now than they did in the 40's and 50's?



"Half of primary school teachers are giving out soap, washing powder and shampoo weekly to pupils from hard-up households, figures show.
As budgets tighten, struggling families are being forced to prioritise bills and food over hygiene essentials.
The study, for charity In Kind Direct, found a quarter of parents cannot afford basic cleaning products.
Nearly 20% admitted their child wears the same underwear for at least two days. A quarter use the same shirt for a week, and 3% go to school in the same clothes for at least a fortnight."

"Nicola Finney, 49, head of St Paul’s Church of England primary in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs, has spent hundreds of pounds of her own cash helping families, buying a washing machine for one.
She said: “You used to have the odd child where you could see the family was struggling because of the way the uniform was kept. Now, it’s two or three in every class.
I talk to colleagues up and down the country, it’s happening everywhere.” Some 80% of primary teachers have seen an increase in unwashed pupils in the last five years.
A third have given out toothpaste, soap or toothbrushes. London was the worst-hit area, with half of teachers referring a family to a charity each week."

Who said humans or the shoes were synthetic?

That was the first mention of synthetic humans - from you.

The cardigan comment was a joke, by the way. Rolling Eyes



I hate being badgered too, I simply leave the debate when that happens or only answer the posts where someone is being polite.

Just a thought.

That is hilarious. Laughing

Re polishing shoes, you don't have to do that with synthetic shoes - that's one bonus.

All this cos I mentioned polished shoes. Only you Didge can have a debate about them.

To answer your question, there is no class, its down to the individual of any class if they want to polish shoes.

I'm outta here in case you want a debate about which colour shoes are polished.

Yes. I didn't know that polishing shoes was a class issue. Laughing

I still don't get the bit about synthetic humans. scratch

Yes, shoes, not humans. Why did you introduce synthetic humans?
