Today, we are concerned for the mental and emotional health of ordinary students. Dan Jones stated in an article for The Chronicle of Higher Education: “Students haven’t developed skills in how to soothe themselves, because parents have solved all their problems and removed the obstacles. They don’t seem to have as much grit as previous generations.” Tim Elmore and Andrew McPeak discuss this statement and suggest three unwitting parental actions that diminish a student’s ability to become a leader, both in and after school.
