This is basically something I've believed and talked about for years. Ever since I started teaching piano to kids who had scheduled activities/lessons/clubs for every night of the week and 2 hours of homework (as young as Grade 1!!). Any free time they do have is spent playing video games or watching TV.

Kids, at least suburb and city kids, don't seem to be taught what's important in life anymore. They're just occupied to stay out of mom and dad's hair.


But, anyway.... I shan't start ranting. I just found this interesting.
