If you're read or watched any Evan Sayet...

…then this is the least sur­pris­ing story in the world:

At Stan­ford, she said, she saw stu­dents rely on their par­ents to set up play dates with peo­ple in their dorm or com­plain to their child’s employ­ers when an intern­ship didn’t lead to a job. The root cause, she said, was par­ents who had never let their chil­dren make mis­takes or face challenges.

Snow­plow par­ents have it back­ward, Ms. Lythcott-​Haims said: “The point is to pre­pare the kid for the road, instead of prepar­ing the road for the kid.”


The thing about hav­ing a life that’s so easy is you don’t know how to deal with the real­i­ties of life which are hard, which is why at the Vic­tory Girls blog you see stuff like this:

So what do these luck­less souls find are the most stress­ful things they endure?

Here are the top five:
Los­ing wallet/​credit card.
Argu­ing with part­ner.
Commute/​traffic delays.
Los­ing phone.
Arriv­ing late to work.

Other stres­sors for these unfor­tu­nates include such things as slow WiFi, a dying phone bat­tery, and for­get­ting pass­words. Oh, and a bro­ken phone screen ranks as more stress­ful than pay­ing credit cards.

If this is the worst you have to deal with you’re damn lucky but if you’ve never had to deal with any­thing worse then this and have no sense of his­tory then YOU DON“T KNOW HOW DAMN LUCKY YOU ARE. It’s no won­der as Instapun­dit notes you can’t deal with a cafe­te­ria full of sauce.

The text in bold is a pretty amaz­ing moment, even for the New York Times:

In her prac­tice, Dr. Levine said, she reg­u­larly sees col­lege fresh­men who “have had to come home from Emory or Brown because they don’t have the min­i­mal kinds of adult skills that one needs to be in college.”

One came home because there was a rat in the dorm room. Some didn’t like their room­mates. Oth­ers said it was too much work, and they had never learned inde­pen­dent study skills. One didn’t like to eat food with sauce. Her whole life, her par­ents had helped her avoid sauce, call­ing friends before going to their houses for din­ner. At col­lege, she didn’t know how to cope with the cafe­te­ria options — cov­ered in sauce.

When I read this I’m glad that World War 2 took place from 19391945 instead of today. Could you ima­giane the fate of the world being on these people?

You wanted to see what a post Chris­t­ian soci­ety looks like, well folks this is it, take a bow.

Oh and if you don’t get the Kinder­garten of Eden ref­er­ence get this book.

…then this is the least surprising story in the world:

At Stanford, she said, she saw students rely on their parents to set up play dates with people in their dorm or complain to their child’s employers when an internship didn’t lead to a job. The root cause, she said, was parents who had never let their children make mistakes or face challenges.

Snowplow parents have it backward, Ms. Lythcott-Haims said: “The point is to prepare the kid for the road, instead of preparing the road for the kid.”
