Running in Circles
A very interesting kindergarten in Kyoto. Can you imagine the lawsuits in America? Do you think we can ever get past our greed and fear of letting kids be kids. Small injuries are going to happen. We post images on FB and other social media that shows our playgrounds of the past with steel and concrete. Most of us survived fairly unscathed and learned valuable lessons. We learned to help one another. We learned that our actions sometimes have consequences we don't like, so we make better decisions.
Along with entitlement, the generation that are teens today, give little thought to their actions. Why? Because it is always another person's fault or the fault of the city, school, etc. that caused the accident or the outcome. Not theirs. They've never made a decision for their own safety or the safety of others. They've never been allowed to run around in circles unfettered by someone (who fears a lawsuit) yelling at them to stop.
