The studies have been done and the results are in: American children are falling behind children from other prosperous nations in every area. Perhaps this is most noticeable in their skills at hiding during games of hide-and-seek. To put it simply, our children suck at hide-and-seek. Are we putting too much emphasis on seeking and not enough on hiding? Are we teaching to the test instead of letting children live in the world of their imaginations? Should we blame the parents? No, I think in this case the kids themselves are to blame. They just suck at hiding.
