Are We Too Soft on Our Kids?, Today on Dr. Laura

Why Inflated Grades Burst Kids' Bubbles
Last week, I read a story in the news about a school in Inwood, New York that offered to print a second version of each child's report card with higher grades in order to preserve the kids' self-esteem. After I picked my jaw up off the floor, I knew I had to talk about it in my show opening. How did we get so soft on kids? Who is to blame and what are the consequences? Find out at the top of today's program, beginning at 11AM Pacific/1PM Central/2PM Eastern on SiriusXM Stars 109.

What do you think about these teachers creating faux report cards to boost their students' self-esteem? Do you think today's parents are too soft on kids? Send an email...
