'Richard Wilson is like the naughty kid poking the ant's nest with a stick.' Times Online Kids these days are all fat, lazy and thick and their parents don't know how to bring them up properly any more. They're glued to their phones, play too many violent computer games, communicate only in text-speak and as a result have no imagination or any 'proper' old-fashioned fun like we did when we were children. But is that really true? Were conkers, hopscotch and the hoop and stick really as stimulating as we remember? And were our childhoods as safe and carefree as the nostalgia-addicts would have us believe? Richard Wilson takes a cynical peek through time's rose-tinted spectacles at 101 'good old fashioned' childhood activities. From skimming stones to starting fires, he remind us of the harsh and often high-risk, homemade games of our wild youth, and leaves us wondering how we ever survived.
