I wonder though
I mean, my youngest is not yet 13 and yet she's done so much - ski-ing, the whole abseiling lark, martial arts, music lessons, horse riding, drama school - and been abroad frequently from the age of a few weeks old. She's always known how to order from a menu and (hopefully) without being spoilt has had a very good life.

She's also grown up with computers everywhere, plasma screens, surround sound - in short, she's had about 10 x more stimulation in every (good) way than I ever had as a child.

So what the hell is left for her ? And isn't experiencing boredom, challenge and want as a child useful - because it makes us determined to achieve for ourselves ?

No wonder kids don't want to leave home ! Although I have told her that at 18 she is OUT and that now she needs to start doing stuff like cooking and so on if she wants to gain the independence she thinks she wants.

God, bringing up kids is hard !
