Klara plays on her own for hours, and I’m in paradise. She plays with other kids a lots and is super sociable, but the capacity to use her inner resources to build imaginary worlds and explore them on her own is precious.
All of the gadgets, social media, YouTube, and all that garbage conspire to rob our children of the capacity to have a rich and complex inner life. They amputate this capacity and then have life-long patients for their medical solutions and eager dupes for their brainwashing.
The efforts I made to give her a chance to develop this inner world, I’m telling you, folks, it was not easy.
