A Moment for Sober Reflection

21 08 2007

...to whom were these questions posed before Google?

As you get the kids back to school and prepare for the second half of 2007, pause a moment to reflect on this.

According to the US Department of Labor, 1 in 4 people have been with their current employer for less than one year and 1 in 2 less than 5 years. And they say that today’s students will have between 10-14 jobs by their 38th birthday.

My 6 year old niece and 8 year old nephew are going to be very tired.

Good meeting you in Chicago–even if it was just a moment in the elevator!

Your question–to whom were these questions posed before google–is especially important in a time when kids and parents are having such staggeringly different experiences growing up. My five year old niece is just starting Kindergarten. How long before I see her on Facebook?
