Are we raising a generation of nincompoops? | AP Nation - The News Tribune

Are we raising a generation of nincompoops? | AP Nation - The News Tribune

This is an article about the current generation of children that often do not know how to use can openers, tie shoes, zip jacket, etc. I find this odd considering the mind set of so many kids that want independence; how can you be independent if you can't even tie your shoes?


Books that were mentioned in the above article:

http://www.amazon.com/Winter-Our-Disconnect-Teenagers-Technology/dp/1585428558/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1286149939&sr=1-1

http://www.amazon.com/Dumbest-Generation-Stupefies-Americans-Jeopardizes/dp/1585427128/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1286150020&sr=1-1



And a book entitled Free-Range Kids by Lenore Skenazy
