Teaching Kids to Think: Raising Confident, Independent, and Thoughtful Children in an Age of Instant Gratification by Darlene Sweetland

Teaching Kids to Think: Raising Confident, Independent, and Thoughtful Children in an Age of Instant GratificationEveryone should read this book.

Google is great, and cell phones are great, and instant everything is great, so where’s the catch?

Loss of persistence and perseverance.
Not wanting to put time into learning something hard.
Not wanting to fail, and thinking that insta-win is the only non-failing option.
Not learning how to looking for solutions, because there’s an app for that.
Not learning self-reliance, because of never taking the first baby-steps in that direction.

OK, so Kids These Days [tm] has a new variant, now what can parents do about it?
Actually, I recommend this book to teens as well. They might recognize their family lives, and think twice.
