Being cagey with the kids

Here’s a question for Saturday morning. What has this photograph got to do with Colin McCahon? Answer. Fresh air. That’s why the baby is in the cage and that is why the McCahon house has a bunk room with no wall between it and the Titirangi bush. Like many parents bringing kids up mid last century and before, the McCahons believed that breathing in fresh air was literally a life saver for children. Now, go outside and play.
