“Before we can teach a kid how to academically excel in school, we need to teach him how to have stillness, pay attention, stay on task, regulate, make good choices,” said Larochette. “We tell kids be quiet, calm yourself down, be still. We tell them all these things they need in the classroom, but we’re not teaching them how to do that.” -couldn't agree more!

Why Is Narcissism Increasing Among Young Americans?

Why Is Narcissism Increasing Among Young Americans? | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
Play deprivation may underlie the increase in narcissism and decline in empathy.
Lon Woodbury's insight:

Less time for play by children without adult intervention is his major speculation as to the cause.  Other speculations include: More honest in questionnaires (but he questions that): Misguided 'self-esteem' movement;  and increased pressure on children to achieve which has as one result less time for play to accommodate more academic preparation time.  This is a very insightful essay. -Lon

Julia Steiny: Stranded in the Land of Over-Stimulated Kids

Julia Steiny: Stranded in the Land of Over-Stimulated Kids | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
The Orlando International Airport was teemed with children, which is not surprising since it's the put-in for Disney World, Universal Studios and, as we subsequently found out, about a thousand other theme parks and "attractions." Even with mouse ears on kids and adults alike, the tense gloom was palpable. Big ads on the walls showed super-happy families on some ride or other, "making memories," as Disney says.
Lon Woodbury's insight:

What an insight into "manufactured" family time offered by theme parks.  Now its more clear why I have avoided the treck to DisneyLand :). -Lon

Excerpt:

"There are biological reasons why kids with ADHD don’t learn or behave like their peers. Here’s a look at how the ADHD brain is structured and functions compared to the non-ADHD brain."


"Understanding that behaviors like hyperactivity and impulsivity are caused by a medical condition can make it easier to parent a child with ADHD. Among the many ways you can help are by making some changes at home and seeking accommodations at school."

By Amanda Morin

That amounted to interference in the child’s freedom and personal rights, because pharmacological agents induced behavioral changes but failed to educate the child on how to achieve these behavioral changes independently. The child was thus deprived of an essential learning experience to act autonomously and emphatically which “considerably curtails children’s freedom and impairs their personality development”, the NEK criticized.
