Sir, – Are we losing all sense of proportion in this country? Among the issues which drew comment in the HSE creche reports were that “the tone of voice was raised by staff when addressing the pre-school children” and “two children who were taking longer over their lunch than others were told to finish up” (Social Affairs, July 11th).
How do you get the attention of a bunch of pre-school children except by raising the tone of your voice? How do you get children who are dawdling over their lunches to finish except by telling them to finish up?
It’s time this country got real and stopped this over-emphasis on so called political correctness. – Yours, etc,
