why do kids seem so competitive these days???why are the parents following suit?Answer Question
Because the stakes are so high...? Plus, tt seems as though we're all stuck thinking there isn't enough of anything to go around; so, it's all a race, too. Part of what feeds it is we're inundated with "studies" of what works best for fill-in-the-blank. And, the studies are EVERYwhere: online, in the paper, on the 24 news channels... I worked in a school system for one year and dealt with more 8 year-olds with diganosed anxiety disorders. And when talking to a parent, you understand: Jimmy has piano on Monday; travel soccer on Tuesday; boy scouts on Wednesday; math club on Thursdays and fill-in-the-blank on Friday. If I were 8 with that schedule after school each day, I'd be a little on edge, too!Â We've lost our balance...
