I plan to address this on my blog, but I'd like to know what other people think. The original version of the book "Generation Me" was published in 2006, and claims virtually all individuals born in the U.S. between 1970 and the late 1990s have had their educations based on 'the Self-Esteem Movement.' Its author claims this is why the kids are growing up to be a) 'little narcissists' who b) are not prepared for 'reality' when they finish school and become adults. I believe the author missed the mark entirely; but I'm posting because all I ever heard about this came from sitcoms- not my experiences, not my kids' experiences. So if you have kids (or grandkids) in that age group, did their school experiences include stuff she mentioned such as teachers not marking a wrong answer as wrong because it'd cause kids to 'feel bad,' not allowing any competition (sports, academic) because if someone 'wins' someone else would 'lose,' 'everybody gets a trophy,' schools not allowing Honor Rolls, etc.?
