Okay, the other thread where I wanted to discover this stalled in the total lack of my clarity, so maybe we can discover it here. Some parents believe that there is no limit how far and in what way they should push their children to "maximize their potential". At some places this attitude is at national proportions. It is surprising how few parents in the world think in terms of raising a "balanced individual". So, if you are a parent, where would you put the line between the win-or-lose and the what-the-kid-is?
Maybe even more importantly, if you are a kid, how do you save your piece when every minute of every day is already scheduled for you to discard yourself and to go full steam ahead to "maximize your potential"?
