Raising Kids In A Society Fixated On Competition and Performance ~ Ben Bost

Isn’t competition as American as apple pie and Chevrolet? Yes, but all too often, modern society’s fixation with competition, performance and metrics erodes our children’s identity and the Christian faith we are trying to build. Even worse, well-intentioned parents are often the worst culprits! Ben Bost shares compelling research about the harm that our competitive society inflicts on kids today…and how parents and classical Christian schools can offer children stability in an unstable world.
