How Attached Are You?
I need only to watch my 7 and 5 year old daughters play a game of monopoly to notice the vastly different world views they hold and wonder to myself which will be served better in life. My older one is passionately attached to every move, every roll of the dice, and every property bought or sold. And the game is an unending emotional rollercoaster for her. She plays all out. To the contrary, my younger daughter is happily unattached. She's fine with whatever happens. Her attention is split between strategic moves and cartwheels. And funnily, she's winning. At this point, I can only wonder what the future holds for them!
