The 75-year old fears the inability of the next generation to do anything with their hands. He said that if schools used practical toys such as Meccano to teach students, the latter would rediscover their vital skills. He stressed on the need to teach children hands-on instead of making them computer or phone dependent. It is the inability to do things the old-fashioned way that children will be more likely to become brain dead, Baylis added.
