Christine Gross-Loh has traveled the world and come to the conclusion that very many Americans are overprotected, are irresponsible teenagers, are poorly educated, and I will add that they become adults who can’t survive in the real world of work, achievement, and family life.
She reinforces what I have been writing about in my blogs. Offspring should have an indoctrinated moral code by the age of 13 and should be participating in real world responsibilities in their teenage years working about 4 hours a day at less than minimum wage doing urban farming, safe factory assembly line work, being cashiers, and working in fast food establishments. Parents can either shuttle teenagers to and from work or they can ride scooters or motorcycles to work on their own.
There is proof in the world from different countries that students need much less hours spent in school but need to focus more intensely on technological skills needed in the 21st century with much less purposeless, useless liberal arts education which has bad job prospects.
