Some kids get more attention at school than they ever do at home. And not the positive kind. They spend more time watching television than they do talking to their parents, who feed them junk food, allow them to run wild, and don’t show up for parent/teacher conferences.
Other kids are sent to the best schools and feel pressure to score high marks. They participate in a dizzying array of extracurriculars, with the goal of gaining acceptance into a prestigious university in order to embark upon a lucrative career they’ll only marginally enjoy (if they’re lucky.)
Both seem pretty extreme to me. I’m aiming for the sweet spot of somewhere in between.
Does it exist anymore?
