childhood fact or fiction.
do children these days really have a childhood? i am only 26, but as a mother i am noticing that more is expected of my children than was ever expected of me. when i started kindergarten all i had to know was my address and phone number. now a days you have to pass tests to get in to kindergarten. when they told me my kindergartner has to carry 2 after school activities, i about fell over. what happen to PLAYING OUTSIDE. are we so afraid if we let our children use their imagination's that they might have fun? so do our children really have a childhood, or our we to busy programing them for their future that we forget to stop and let them have fun and enjoy being worry free?
