Re: Lazy parents make happy families

I think it's also important to teach kids how to entertain themselves (through art, reading, etc.) and to be content with simplicity so that they don't always feel the need for some form of "external stimulation" like video games or social activities. I think a child's interests should be discovered and then nurtured, rather than being something forced upon them. Besides, it seems that a lot of kids end up taking an aversion to what is forced upon them, so a parent's good intentions could easily backfire.

Raising kids never gets easy does, it?
