letting kids be kids

I was looking back at a few old articles this morning; today’s article was definitely a topic that made me think a little deeper.

The article is written by a high school teacher, sharing his thoughts about his students and the pressure to turn them into adults – before they are adults.  Makes me wonder if we’re putting too much pressure on young people to be adults (or at least think like adults) before they are ready – and allow them to “just be kids?”

Here’s a link to this interesting article:

As a parent, I wonder if I was guilty for pushing my daughters to be adults too soon.

Definitely something to think about…
