Six Sigma Parenting

I was chatting with my flatmate and her sister last night.

I got thinking about questions that have been swimming around my mind for a while now.

Do parents plan too much of their kids upbringing?

With all the planning and extra curricular activities, is too much pressure put on kids nowadays?

And to what end? I did fairly well in school, have an OK job. But is working 12 hour plus days really something worth aiming for? To me that seems the natural outcome of super diligent parenting and educating.

I would rather aim for well rounded adults. Success ain't wealth and a fancy job title, far from it.
