Do-Nothing Cultivation

How true! Esp with the over-education of children these days. Some parents are so busy making sure their children DO everything: tennis, swimming, music etc etc that the children have no time just to be children AND the parents are exhausted running them around and working and running a home. Crazy. I am a older person (hehehe) but when I was a child our parents just let us get on with whatever was our interest...not push us into some 'hot house' scenario. I've met adults who also think that every waking moment should be 'busy' or 'productive' for various reasons of their own. Balance is the answer, moderation in all things.
