DailyDirt: Parents, Don't Let Your Kids Grow Up To Be Cowboys…

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There are as many different kinds of parenting as there are parents (or more…) — every kid is different, and no two parents treat their kids the same way. Definitely, some questionable parenting techniques exist, but who’s really to say what’s correct? (Okay, child services and/or a judge….) Some folks believe in a free-range kid policy, but others think that’s crazy or dangerous. If you’re not already flooded with parenting advice, check out some of the following links.

After you’ve finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

Intrinsic motivation should be what drives kids to study hard and be diligent with chores.
I actually let a chuckle out at this one, because we really need more studies in this area.
Different kids will be interested in different things. Surely discipline can go a long way but you can’t turn an F into an A+ on discipline alone.

Off on a bit of a tangent but we’re also getting more and more obsessed with the idea a younger (and paradoxically more experienced) workforce, ever trying to drive down the age barrier for school, high school and college lower and lower.

This results in a few geniuses, yes, but also contributes to many cracked minds, school abandonment and even juvenile crime.
