Are today’s children over-indulged and over-protected? Does this at least in part explain what’s wrong with today’s overly-entitled young adults? And why they need “safe spaces” and “trigger warnings?”
Vitamin N makes a lot of sense. There’s social science to back this up and I think many people have seen it first hand too.
Sticks and Stones – I think there’s a need for balance on this one. Some protection and helping kids deal with the cruelty of others is needed. You can’t just abandon them to their own devices; they are kids after all with a lot of maturing to do. I’m wondering what other causes there may be for some people growing up a lot tougher and more resilient than others.
