400 dollars an hour for "recreation consultants." Really? People to teach your child how to play after systematically regimenting their childhood to favor elite kindergarten admissions? This is just about the saddest thing I've heard. What are we coming to?
This is sort of hitting me because of all the college application stuff actually. I've been thinking a good deal on our expectations of such young people. This pressure to be picture perfect. Why do we expect our kids to be more than we were at their age? I was a star in school and got into every college I applied to... and I was nothing compared to what they are expecting of kids today.
