    #18 Isn't it sad when you see them they are going to be in trouble due to their own fault, and you must hold back? To let them learn from their own mistakes?
    I find this the worst part, as before they get hurt, I already can feel in advance the pain they are inevitably going to feel...but one has tightened hands and has to even silence the "told you so's" and much more.

    Empty nest is certainly one of the major epoch journeys of our existence. The transition from "parent" to friend is difficult, but a worthy journey. You thought the teenage years were the most difficult. The hardest thing i have ever done as a parent was not during the years of parenting, but holding back all the "I told you so's". Allowing the grown children to find life on their own experiences.

    Every once in a while we get to laugh about an "i told you so" because they bring it up.

    I agree with you very much. When we educate children, we have not to give up ourselves. I think it麓s important for a child not to see us only as parents but as passionate people that do what they love, too. Lots of parents are always searching for resamblance of their own selfs in their children. They try to transfer their own wishes and fondness to the children. But in my opinion one base of education is to discover the special person with his own special wishes and fondness in the children. And to promote them. So the child is able to go its own and independent way one day that will make it happy.

For my two brothers and I it was a great opportunity to improve our English skills. All three of us had the opportunity later to live and work abroad. These early contacts with different cultures had a lasting influence on us. Knowing both sides - as a host family and as a student I will make sure to host foreign exchange students at my home as well. And of course, I will encourage my kids to study abroad. There is now better way to grow open and tolerant kids. Best, Marcel

    Great advice here, John, as always. It's important for children to gain a broader perspective of the world than just that of the USA, or wherever country in which they live. Moreover, in today's modern and hyper-connected global, digital, mobile and virtual world, it simply makes good sense -- personally and professionally -- to learn more about other cultures and peoples. This will make the next generation of leaders more well rounded and grounded.

    Very relevant and thought provoking JuanBee! We do not have ALL THE TIME in the world, to explore the WORLD OF INFO and knowledge and distraction now at our fingertips thanks to smartphony and the ubiquitous Internet. So it is of utmost importance that we teach our children to prioritize, be selective, considerate, cautious and focused (in activities and relationships online), and lend greater importance (or at least equal importance) to physical activity, time management and connecting with peers and family, and of course, not ignore newspaper and book reading (the hard-copy versions) ;)

    A wider issue is the extent of exposure to screens at the exclusion of the real world especially in the first 100 days. Some parents are extending "social" to mean using devices as a distraction, baby sitter, or pacifier for very young children. There is some research that warns that this is potentially causing long term damage.
    see: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/behind-online-behavior/201604/what-screen-time-can-really-do-kids-brains
    for example. The tips have to include alerting parents of young children (under 3) of this risk.

    Great article with excellent points. My sons are 12 years old and I am very wary of them becoming social. While there are great benefits there are still many dangers and cause for concern. Thus, the need for supervision, which a teenager does not want. The best option is to teach them right from wrong and how to assess situations to make the morally right and ethical decsions.

    An addition to your article though are the parents who create profiles for their children and chronicle their lives on social media. I think this is wrong and is a violation of the child's rights. What if later in life the child is embarrassed by some of these posts? Parents who do this must consider what and how they are posting about their child.

    This is a post every parent should read. The benefits of the internet for children can be amazing in helping them grow, but the dark side can set a young mind back permanently. Also, the internet should not be a child's sole communication with the outside world. Children need face to face contact in order to grow healthy relationships.

    @Juan Imaz, this is obviously an incredibly important issue. I'm part of that 36% in your graphic that thinks the appropriate age is around 15 (depending on the kid, to some extent). I get that younger kids have peers who may be allowed more freedom, and that's where I also think parents need to be watchful. Parents may be careful in their own home, but what happens when their kids sleep over at a friend's house? Just go over to play? Have the parents had conversations with other parents on this? I sure hope so!

    You can read my blog post about the book and see a video interview he made here:

    #5 This is the thing, not everybody with millennial kids shares the same experiences he is talking about, but first when I watched this - I thought maybe our family is just an exception to the rule. As I went out exploring this I discovered he has exposed a home truth about a particular parenting style, but one cannot paint all millennials as a result with the same brush - and if anything the usefulness of this video is to discover at the same time the truths that go into a stereotype or a label.

    There is a problem with social media but it applies equally to all generations whether they be boomers or millennials, which is how quickly we take it at face value. It is not that we are not individually intelligent enough to understand it, but that we move on quickly to the next piece of social media before we have absorbed and tested this in our own context or given reality.

    Ironically when I first heard him speak, his powers of persuasion were immense, he had me convinced that he had found the great truth and I had to check myself spouting this as I thought "Wait, why not ask a millennial - the one's I know, the one's we parented".

    In the cold day of light, it is a great truth that pertains to a specific demographic with a specific conformity of cultural values. As Bugs Bunny might say, "sometimes it just feels-white", (I mean right).

    This video is super important and very interesting, anyone with kids should first watch it, reflect on it and then watch it and discuss it with their kids. Because social media are a great thing but managing social media is now part of parenting. Don麓t you think so?

    What I am going to focus on most is Simon Sinek delivery and presentation style. He speaks with great authority and assurance, only problem is that I have yet to find a millennial who I have talked to that actually matches up with the kind of millennial group he is talking about. Then again, I have not talked so far to white middle class parents who buy into all such entitlement and spoiling.

    He is addressing a sub-group and if he was Clinton's running mate, he would probably get her another million votes in California and lose the Rust Belt of America by an even bigger margin than Clinton lost it - maybe even 5pts compared to Clinton's 3.5pt under-performance from the last election. Whatever the actual facts of his content, he is a compelling speaker and I am not surprised by the viral nature of this video, it speaks to 100% Sinekism or Cynicism about rich white people.

    Millennials look at companies as the paths of their thoughts and when these thoughts are blocked or not addressed and expressed,they reach a premature end.Millennials,so,quit their jobs either because they don't have the power or the patience to bend with the conformity trend or because their pockets,time and hearts are filled.Generally,considering millennials as loyal assets is a welfare or a fantasy that goes beyond the business logic and the well established economic theories.

    An important contribution to dialogue, which forms the nub of conversations that I am sure lead to additional insights from that young generation which represents my own kids and the young students in our campus club.

    Somehow part of my response was not posted - what I said in the beginning is both the magazines are pushed out through Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts. :-) #6

    #6 Yes, Mike - both Girls Life & Boys Life magazines are run by independent owners, however, both are Girl Scouts an Boy Scouts. And while they have a stated mission, as a mom of a now 20 year old daughter, I know all too well how media plays to girls in such a way that causes them to feel like they are not pretty enough, skinny enough and so on. From what I can understand, the goal of the graphic designer redoing the cover and topics was one to start a healthy discussion about what we should be telling girls. And I for one, am all for that! Yes - of course, someone else can come up with a new magazine - but the side by side comparison was provoking to say the least.

    #4 Ugh! I didn't know this was Girl Scouts magazine. That makes it so much worse! Girl Scouts is supposed to empower young girls. Teach them life skills. And THIS is what their magazine is about? Yuck.

    #2 I know Alexa - and far more appropriate for a Girl Scouts magazine.

    @Mike Rana - actually if you look at all the story titles and focuses - you will see the wording is compellingly different and promotes more positive topics for girls that are not focused on fashion & beauty. This magazine is a Girl Scouts magazine. #1

    Bravo! The first one looks like a teenage version of Cosmopolitan. The second sends a far more appropriate message for adolescents. Life is about more than BFFs, first kisses, and turning yourself into jailbait.
