Are we pushing our kids too hard?

I came across this article today and it got me thinking. It deals with a topic that I truly have mixed feelings about. Are we pushing our kids too hard or are we not pushing them hard enough?

While my wife and I have tended to let our children have the kind of childhoods we had — ones filled with lots of unstructured playtime — we sometimes second guess ourselves. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

In any case, I think the article is worth reading.
