“…I think it makes sense for maturity be the goal.”

Streaming audio from NPR.org, a bit over 15 min long.

I’m not 100% with this guy but he says some things I’ve noticed about kids getting smothered and how this generation of parents are misguided.

About maturity, which this guy describes as “the ability to take other people’s perspectives & to manage destructive feelings & to take criticism and to learn from it, to be self-observing”. I definitely see a lack of that as I go about my day, every day.

I just realized that I don’t know any parents. But I’m sure some of you do and maybe you can find a way to get them to listen to this.
