"Is Technology Making Our Children Weak and Incapable? The Importance of Sending Kids Out to Play"

In my retirement, I teach one day a week as an art teacher at a local private Christian school. One of my main concerns especially in art class is the inability of most children to think independently, to decide on their own. Some children simply freeze up or just sit and look at the paper.

This coddling of our children is making them incapable of independent thinking. If they continue this way they will be dysfunctional adults incapable of self-reliant thinking and behavior.

Send your kids outdoors to play and take away their cell phones or tablets!!!

"Lenore Skenazy says that children need to handle problems on their own and have interactions on their own, without their parents, in order to mature and develop. Overparenting, she says, leads to fragile children who have more anxiety and no inner strength." from the video introduction
