Snowflake Culture

The snowflake culture is killing our kids by Suzanne Venker
Excerpt: Ironically, just after reading the U.K. article I got text from a friend who said our local high school is doing away with class rank, valedictorian, and salutatorian. The message? It's just too stressful for kids to lose. They can't cope. This attempt to shield young people from anything uncomfortable is pure madness. We are setting kids up for a lifetime of pain. The ability to cope with the myriad of changes and challenges that will occur throughout their lives, and the ability to form lasting bonds with people despite the inevitable conflict it brings, is crucial. Who's modeling for kids how to cope with setbacks and adversity? Who's educating them on strategies for how to make their way in the world? (There will be a terrible price for all this in the not-to-distant future. ~Bob)
