Popular Kids Make More Dough Later In Life
Original post made by Chris Zaharias, Crescent Park, on Oct 23, 2012
In jest: I can see report cards ranking students' popularity so that parents can take corrective action. Perhaps counselors will suggest parents of unpopular kids leave home over the weekend so their kids can throw popularity-enhancing ragers.
Not so much in jest: I wonder if kids would be better off if we as parents focused less on buttressing their academic achievement by artificial means (after-school classes, watchdog parents, test prep classes, guided forays into extracurriculars & community service, etc), and more on a healthy social life?
Just throwing this out to start a discussion.
