Real Life

Freddie deBoer writes about how parents can prepare children for the life ahead.

Forget snowflakes. Forget participation trophies. Forget conservative mockery. I’m asking, sincerely and from a place of empathy: isn’t there a chance that the only real way to defend your kids from harm is to show them how constant a companion pain is and teach them how to overcome it?

The whole essay is an outstanding ode to resilience and human connection. As we stride forward into a world where kids want their reality heavily mediated by technology — a plea for the value of the real world with all its flaws is welcome.
