question is why? julie anna w minor at the "washington post" gives a few reasons and i will summarize a few. first, it is not designed to be fun. as kids get older the programs are geared to the more competitive kids. the kids that want to have a good time are squeezed out. and the push for kids to specialize. increasingly kids are pressured to find their passion and excel in that area. the problem is kid don't know what their passion is. that's what being a teenager is about. trying lots of things, failing at stuff and most importantly, wasting a lot of time which brings us to the current focus on success. parents are hyper focused on college. they shouldn't be will. these successful students are not just unwinding after a tough week. they are blowing off steam that built up from their entire over planned adolescents. we don't need successful kids. we need happy kids. and don't worry. they have plenty of time to be successful. did you waste a lot of time in adolescents? >> i have been wasting a lot of time until now.
