The Silent Tragedy Affecting Today’s Children

The Silent Tragedy Affecting Today’s Children


“What is wrong? Today’s children are being deprived of the fundamentals of a healthy childhood, such as:

·         Emotionally available parents

·         Clearly defined limits and guidance

·         Responsibilities

·         Balanced nutrition and adequate sleep

·         Movement and outdoors

·         Creative play, social interaction, opportunities for unstructured times and boredom

Instead, children are being served with:

·         Digitally distracted parents

·         Indulgent parents who let kids “Rule the world”

·         Sense of entitlement rather than responsibility

·         Inadequate sleep and unbalanced nutrition

·         Sedentary indoor lifestyle

·         Endless stimulation, technological babysitters, instant gratification, and absence of dull moments”
