One thing I do know that the movie kind of pointed out. I think a lot of our parents generation think that doing well academically and getting into a good college is the solution to everything. So like they said, their parents gave them a free pass because they did the things they’re supposed to. I dunno, even my parents were like that kinda. They didn’t want me to get *too* involved with church lest it affect my academics. Honestly, and maybe this is bold, but I think they wouldn’t have minded if I just went to Sunday service and spent the rest of the time studying. It’s not just that academics is the highest priority. I think they felt if academics is right, then everything else will fall into place.

So yeah, I think that’s one area in which our generation might be wiser somewhat. Knowing that academics is neither necessary nor sufficient in kids being “good”. In the important ways at least.
