Another reason ...

... I'm glad I'm not a kid: A Nation of Wimps. (Via InstaPundit.)

The great thing about parents when I was a kid is that they left us the hell alone - at least as long as you stayed out of trouble, which is what you did, if you were smart.

  1. Wow--great article, Frank. Thanks for the link. One of my husband's favorite sayings (said when our kids are whining about not getting something they are asking for): "It's good to want."

    I had this very conversation with a friend of mine the other day--that as a culture we don't require enough of our children in the way of chores and responsibilities. Nor do we allow them enough unstructured time to explore.

    good food for thought.
