How can we help our kids walk through a sea of choices?
The Danger of Too Many Choices
Today’s kids find it difficult to make tough choices. This is largely in part to all of the added choices of the cyber world.
In the past, giving a minor a choice was considered a privilege for the minor. Today, the digital options are endless. They breed entitlements, impatience, and narcissism. So now, in the back of their minds, kids stay poised to pounce on a better deal should it arise. And they feel entitled to exercise these options.
But this mentality can carry over to really important things later in life. Things such as marriage commitments. Parents, putting limits on options (and digital options) is key.
