…then this post will save me a rant.
Parents, I feel for you. I really do. On the one hand, you want to provide your child with every advantage. On the other hand, sometimes it feels like when you do that, you’re feeding quite an unhealthy beast.
More than any other generation, today’s youth feels as though they have a right to things that used to be defined as wants, or even privileges. It’s all about gratification (the more immediate, the better!) and comfort.
Buck up, parents. Build character, not a video gaming collection. Teach them to be picky about their standards, not their food. Reward hard work rather than be held hostage by temper tantrums. Strive for excellence, not ease.
How about some reality?
