Reader’s comment: The wring of confidence


In response to Julie Lynn: A handshake should be within every pupil’s grasp, Damaris Tighe wrote:

Although the handshake between teacher and pupil is a European rather than a British convention, I wholeheartedly agree with Julie that this continental custom would be of great benefit – for the reasons she states. Like Julie I well remember circulating among mostly male groups (in the days when a businesswoman stood out a little), and breaking the ice with a handshake and smile. It provides confidence, and is an exercise both in good manners and the art of making a connection with another real, breathing human. I think it’s an especially good exercise for boys, who can be somewhat awkward.
On another subject – can I just say I’m very pleased that TCW is now sending daily notifications of new articles. I’ve been wanting this since the blog started!
