What was your childhood like?
tynamite's avatar My mum was always in the house and my dad was always out the house. My mum spent little time with me and my dad spent loads of time with me. So I ended up with a LOT of conflicting beliefs of how one should think and live their life.

The economy was good. £40-50 filled up 2 large shopping trolleys. Banks, credit cards and catalogues were lending money like crazy. Inflation was low. You could live on the minimum wage in one job. Prices never kept increasing all the time. JSA was £60 a week and I was raised on benefits to a poverty stricken family eating dumplings and baked beans sometimes or no central heating sometimes. Sometimes we had to go to school in the previous school year's uniform and pretend it was new.

We really struggled for everything we had and had to work VERY hard at our education and talents.

I went to 5 schools. I was bullied in 2 of them, popular in 2 of them and in one of them neutral popularity as the class never really had friendship groups we just did whatever.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
