Kids have come to rely heavily on parents and teachers to do their thinking for them. They have become unwilling, or unable, to go beyond rote learning.

• Dinner and a movie is so overdone. What are some creative dating ideas? Here are a few of my favorites, and by the way Dinner and a movie is for people in a relationship.
