Are We Raising a Generation of Helpless Kids? | Mickey Goodman

Little League baseball on a Saturday afternoon...

My answer would be NO, but the rest of society is. Yes, I’m pointing the accusatory finger at YOU, and YOU, and YOU. I coached Little League Baseball, softball, Youth soccer, football, and Park and Rec league basketball. I was Mr. Involved parent. And I always tried to discourage the Team Moms from buying the insipid trophies for EVERY player for the end of the year. It serves as a metaphor for all that this article speak toward.

I still remember this one Mom, a co-worker, asking me (but not realy. Really, she was just making a statement of her own plight and could care less what I said or did with my kids), “What do you do when you kid is screaming at you to stop at McDonalds. I say no, but they keep whining that they want McDonalds. So naturally I give in and we stop.” I was incredulous. I said, the fact that you do stop every time (or most times) is exactly why they scream and whine. My kids don’t and NEVER have whined. I’m proud they learned that lesson.

  1. Amen! I’m so tired of watching parents at the store: while their kid screams they ignore, never saying anything. Just say knock it off! Stop it! Say something! The rest of us don’t want to hear your kid scream. And they can stop it. Stand up as a parent and say something. Please! I beg you. It works. I’ve done it.
