    I am a parent of two very young children - and so far I am happy to say none of the kids my daughter went to pre-school with seemed to have this issue. My husband and I have tried very hard to let our girls do what they want ... within reason. All the trigger warnings and bubble wrapped corners and knee pads to walk down the street ... it's ridiculous. I do hope this "fad" dies out and people realize that their kid getting a bruise on their knee is no big deal. Or that really, they earned that D or F in school and parents should be teaching them to try harder and teach them better habits than to brow-beat teachers or administrations into passing their child.

      I wonder how much of the fad is a generational thing. I would argue that the kids who are in grade school and younger today (who are too young to be millennials) are largely being raised by parents who graduated high school and went to college during the 80's. The 80's were considered to be a very happy-go-lucky, shallow, and self-centered time, and I wonder if that's a lasting legacy of how that culture affected the young people coming of age during that time.
