The downside to where we are today is that our children are suffering. They do not get enough rest. They are constantly performing, preparing and producing. Holiday breaks are for catch-up with homework, whereas that time used to be for catching up with family.
Many kids are used to rushing out of the house in the morning and don’t want to eat or think they don’t need to eat. Some even grab a coffee (I can’t believe how many teenagers and kids are drinking coffee!) and move on with their day.
