During mandatory PTA meetings, play groups, or children's birthday parties, you can bet there are a few parents who humbly say they don't put any emphasis on achievements and are perfectly content so long as the kids are happy and healthy. OK, maybe there's a possibility that these people mean it and I'm just cynical, but chances are there's a teeny tiny part of every parent that is hopeful their child will grow up to be an independent, confident trail-blazer.
