They are gone! The kids are finally back at school, and Beav’s wife couldn’t be happier. They survived a long summer at home, but just barely. Alex has another week before he can pass his 3 boys off at day care to give his wife a break from chaos.

Do you realize how much day care costs?!?! It's amazing how it feels when the day care bills end and the kids are off to actual school. But on the other hand, the reality of the youngest going to a real school for the first time, and seeing them walk off through the school halls with a backpack on can be a hard thing to come to grips with, especially for Mom.

Speaking of hard things to deal with, the guys discuss todays kids growing up in a soft society. The fact is, the young population has much less to harden them, whether it's from not having 40lbs of text books to carry, or participation trophies, to giving credit to kids that haven’t earned it. Reality is, easy times don’t make hard people. How will that effect the future? Entitlement is at an all time high, and work ethic seems to be on a downfall.

How do we balance supporting our kids athletic and scholastic goals, while still letting them lose and fail to learn those lessons on their own? We want our offspring to do well, and to continue to doing what makes them happy. Leaving a gymnastics competition crying can be discouraging, but is it better than giving them false hope and expectations on what it means to compete and follow through with tasks?
 
Some great conversation and childhood stories in this episode of the Tactical Baby Gear® Podcast, so sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
