Perspectives: 124/365

Tick Tock

For too long we have assumed
The adults know what is best.
For too long we have assumed
Public officials have our interests in mind.
For too long we have assumed
Teaching was a simple job.

For too long…

For too long children
Have been denied responsibility.
For too long children
Have learned reliance over resilience.
For too long children
Have been racing ahead of adults with technology.

For too long???

A truth might be
That adults have babied and sheltered kids.
A truth might be
The children have been overly supervised in programmed play
A truth might be
Kids have been gaining experience when left to their devices.
