I was watching the Today show I had DVR'd yesterday, I had wandered through when the title at the bottom said "Does Motivation Hurt Kids" or something similar. Surprisingly, the "expert" said "all kids don't deserve trophies". Preach it. I am sorry to say there are some children who need to be left behind.

But the thing that got me was, the expert said that colleges now have people on staff who deal exclusively with helicopter parents. WHAT? THE? FRICK?

Even worse, these parents are now interfering with salary negotiations. It's about time for me to move to my compound in Alaska, because the end days are upon us!
