Helping them help

Kids are helpful, but they don't typically help with anything. They want to they're just bad at it. Really bad at it. But they were also bad at walking at one point, and that got better (or worse, depending on how many head injuries you have to field annually).

Helping the kids help can be daunting. Because as adults, we are so much better at things than they are. So it's faster and in some cases safer to do it yourself. But it isn't helpful. It isn't helpful to you, it isn't helpful to them and it isn't helpful to society as a whole.
