Wisdom From Other Blogs: Is Your Child’s Schedule Too Tight?

Something for me to learn, especially as an Asian with a super-kiasu tendency mom :-)

"…children in urban contexts …are constantly being moved from one activity to another. They are hurried in the morning and rushed to bed at night, with a... flurry of activities throughout the day. There is precious little time for thoughtful conversations and exchanges because those things take time. Without opportunities for reflection, it is difficult to consolidate any information."

And how true... I am attest to this after going part-time:

"A person not overstretched by a tight schedule is likely to have a calmer, sharper sense of mind to appreciate the true purpose of an activity, and savour the sweetness of idle moments as time well spent."
