The Reset Generation

Easy street is gridlocked

Everybody’s a winner, trophies for winning nothing, no keeping score, no child left behind, no consequences, no cuts, no struggle, the reset button, limited recess, no tag, teacher chooses teams at recess, helicopter parenting, over structured, over protected, over padded, over instructed, over kill…The list of “easiest as we can make it” goes on.

Parents and society have removed and continue to remove opportunities for kids to develop life skills. How will they manage on their own in the real world. What will the outcome be?

Will kids have what it takes to stand strong in the wake of adversity and meet the challenges no matter the circumstances, or will they hunt aimlessly for the reset button that real life can never offer?
