Helicopter parenting a la Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror.
Kit and I watched a lot of Black Mirror recently in preparation for the new series which is due to come out pretty soon.
I dunno if it’s appropriate for a one year old? But it’s pretty good watching.
I do wonder how the future will change parenting – what will kids be like in a decade, when they’ve grown up with such incredible technology? What will education be like in the western world where there is simply no reason for a person to be able to recall facts and figures and dates from memory; no reason to be able to perform long division or calculate the surface are of a sphere.
A weird world we live in.
