In my retirement I teach one day a week as an art teacher at a local private Christian school. One of my main concerns especialy in art class is the inability of most children to think independently, to make a decision on thei own. Some children simply freeze up or just sit and look at the paper.
This coddling of our children is making them incacpabkle of independent thinking. If they continue this way they will be dysfunctional adults incacpable of self-reliant thinking and behavior.
Send your kids outdoor to play and take away their cell phone or tablet!!!
