Meet George, our youngest child – he’s just turned eight years of age.
He’s a kind thoughtful and caring young boy.
George has a lovely relationship with his sister Charlotte and is a very
popular boy with both school and with the neighbourhood children. He
chooses his friends carefully and remains very loyal to them.
We know that he is secure and content in his world of home, school
friends and hobbies. He loves “Fortnite”, is ace on his scooter and is
growing in confidence meeting new challenges in a positive and
In reality, life for George post March 2020 remained on an even keel.
He is a child of his times. Covid 19 prevented his holiday abroad that
summer to France, birthday parties ceased, school closed but within his
bubble George remained secure. Paternal Grandparents had not able
to visit since December 2019. They live in the UK and usually help out in
school holidays. This gave the opportunity for George and Charlotte to
re-engage with close family who live a distance from them.
However, the world has changed phenomenally and it will surely
impact on George and his generation. We as adults have witnessed
change on a biblical scale, the speed of change has been insane!
The world the youngsters are entering is fraught and unknown: health,
wealth, BLM, the economy, racism, inequalities, global warming, the
list goes on.
They are the generation who will have to deal with the future, the
generation and their children’s generation who will have to shoulder
the huge financial impact of Covid 19. The generation who hopefully will
look at the global world with fresh eyes, embrace the need for change,
adapt and work together as a global community to address some of
the big issues of our times, many of which have been brought to the
forefront during the pandemic such as Breonna Taylor’s death which
highlights social injustices the world still continues to experience..
As George moves into his teenage years we hope that he will continue
to develop and grow into a young man with positive attributes and
outlooks to meet the challenges of such an ever changing world in
the 21st century. Our Covid 19 world in 2020 is a polarised society and
it requires change. George and his contemporaries will be the drivers
and instigators of such change. We as parents are very proud of
our son and the young person we see emerging. We have no doubt
George will make a positive impact on the society that he lives in.
