This article is true as kids need to learn from their mistakes and experience it without too much influence from parents.
Todd Davies's comment, August 19, 2014 7:59 PM
This article is interesting because cotton wool kids have come about just after my generation. I was always out there climbing trees and falling down. These experiences taught me from a young age to get back up and keep trying. Kids these day that are wrapped in cotton wool aren't going to learn to learn to keep trying.

The 10 types of trash that are littering our beaches

The 10 types of trash that are littering our beaches | outdoors | Scoop.it

It’s no secret that the world’s ocean trash problem is getting bad; looking at a handful of images from the Texas-sized Pacific garbage patch should be enough to convince anyone. As for all of our litter that doesn’t end up in the middle of the ocean? It often stays close to shore, where volunteers for Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup pick some of it up, cataloging all the items they find.
