    having just watched the video with Ass Prof Mike Nagel – I come away so worried.
    He made some statements which give cause for those of us who are educators and for parents to take note.
    1. The culture of drinking to excess – how do we “rescue” the current generation who do this. We encouraged them to drink in moderation under the guise of “harm minimisation” – it got away from us. Now they are paying for it in their lives.
    2. The impact of time spent “on screen” which inhibits a young persons developing ability to read faces and learn to interact with others.
    3. The impact of media / advertising on attitude / brain development leading to lifestyle choices for young people.

    Keep up the good work folks!
