Charlie Sykes, author of 50 Things Your Kids Won’t Learn in School, just wrote a really great piece for the Wall Street Journal called “Adult Supervision.” In it he describes a culture that seems to want to shroud our kids in bubble wrap.

What’s an overprotective culture costing our children? Charlie Sykes has added it up. Tune in.
