WHEN I was at school we had a teacher who honed in on girls, often vulnerable ones with family issues or personal problems. The teacher was youngish and good-looking(ish) and soon had an almost cult-like following. He played the guitar and had long hair. If he read out your essay you felt special. If he said you looked nice you glowed. Then rumours started to fly that he was meeting girls in a secluded part of the school and having sex with them. At first I thought it couldn’t be true, but it was and the teacher was eventually asked to leave. He didn’t stop though and recently his deeds caught up with him at another school. Now in his sixties, he was found guilty last year of rape and sexual grooming of…

MY GRANDSON’S PUZZLE FUN I BOUGHT an issue of YOU a while back as a cover story interested me. And as I was looking through the magazine, I came across your Kids’ Games pages and decided to try the puzzles out on my six-year-old grandson. Besides having attention deficit disorder, he’s a leftie and has to have occupational therapy because of his difficulty with fine motor coordination. He was vaguely interested to start with, but now that he’s got the hang of them, he can’t wait to dive into my basket to find my copy of your magazine. He then cuddles up next to me on the sofa, gets a pen out of my bag and proceeds to do all the puzzles – some with my help, but most without it. His sense of achievement…

ANOTHER GREAT TRADE Regarding your article about careers (YOU, 26 September), I’m surprised you didn’t include printing as a trade. There’s so much scope in the print and publishing industry. It’s such an art. And the feeling of watching a press run and seeing an image start forming on paper is just incredible. The first time I saw this was on a newspaper press where they were printing Rapport and The Sunday Times on a Saturday afternoon. I was hooked and started my career in the print industry. I did colour retouching for YOU and Huisgenoot in 1990, long before computers. Thirty years later I’m still in this industry and still get goosebumps when I hear the sound of a press starting up. Print is, and always will be, one of the most…

so glad i’m staying

The Facebook group called #ImStaying grew to 300 000 members in a matter of weeks (YOU, 17 October). It was a group I was reluctant to join but I did so nevertheless and it has changed my life. It doesn’t see people as black, white, Indian or coloured but sees everyone as South African. We all share encouraging stories, learn about one another’s cultures and languages and laugh at funny moments shared by so many members. It’s a group that won’t tolerate any negative comments but only ones that uplift and encourage one another in a South Africa that’s hurting from so much right now. Everyone in this group has the sole purpose of restoring faith in one another as patriotic South Africans who are determined to see a better future for…

in brief

What a heartbreaking interview with Tharina Human’s mom, agonising over why her seemingly normal daughter allegedly arranged the kidnap of a little girl (YOU, 17 October). Surely she’s asked Tharina why over and over on her visits? I know I would’ve! SUZAN HACKNEY, DRAKENSBERG “How dare you!” teenage activist Greta Thunberg shouts at the generation of her parents who’ve failed to care for her generation’s future. Let all the young people over the next 20 years show they can make amends and heal planet Earth for their children who’ll come after them. WM, HOUTBAY I believe there’s no discipline these days and that’s why there are so many unruly spoilt brats (YOU, 10 October). I don’t believe in violence but a smack on the backside hurts no one as long as it’s not done…
