Quote

Overprotected and over-managed by their parents, and with few challenges all their own through which to sharpen their instincts and identities, kids are unable to forge their own unique adaptations to the normal vicissitudes of life. That not only makes them extraordinarily risk-averse; it makes them psychologically fragile. In the process, they’re robbed of identity, meaning, and a sense of mastery, which underlies real happiness….Whether we’re aware of it or not, we’re on our way to creating a nation of wimps.
