This articled has been sitting in my Instapaper account for awhile. I keep going back to it and re-reading it. Maybe it just speaks to me personally, but I think Dallas makes a profound observation: why aren’t we spending specifically-set-aside chunks of time teaching kids how to handle this crazy, emotional package that is, “being human?”
I know from my own life that dealing with emotional issues gets better with practice. And I also know that there are a lot of things that I’ve had to learn as an adult that would’ve been easier (or more beneficial) to learn as a child.
