WORK
All work and no play make Jack a dull boy.
What is the job of a teenager? Is it to become a member of a civil, engaged society or become a receptacle for parent’s unrealized dreams? It bothers me that we pay so much attention to competition and not nearly as much effort into healthy relationships, caring for others and “soft skills” like empathy and being a good listener. I believe we should take the long view that “soft skills” have a lot more to do with a successful life than SAT scores, your alma mater, your GPA or your bank account.
