Soccer this - Soccer that

At to what level should kids occupy themselves? Some parents seems to be doing nothing but driving to soccer training, dance lessons and who knows what more.

A friend of mine drives her kids to at least 2 activities per day! Now that is a lot of training for kids in my opinion.  Of course it's good if the kids practice some kind of sports but to have a different activity everyday does not leave much space for personal growth.

We live in a time and a world where we try to occupy ourselves to the edge and when the TV isn't working or we haven't got anything to do we get restless and don't know what to do with ourselves. Isn't there something wrong there?

Your child come to you and says; "Mom I'm bored". Instead of saying "Oh well doing nothing can also be a good thing" you instantly try and occupy your child so that he is doing something. But what are we saving our children from? Boredom?

I wish more of us would try and live now  and just enjoy what we have...
