All Work and No Play Make Kids Something Something

The culture-whiners are at it again. Their target this time: cartoons like Bob the Builder that (gasp!) instill the idea of a work ethic in children. It seems there's an amazing amount of nostalgia for classic lazy cartoon dads like George Jetson and Fred Flintstone being role models for kids. Now, I'm all for letting kids be kids, but it doesn't seem to me that introducing kids to the value of hard work and responsibility is such a terrible thing. Certainly not one worth 2 pages of hand-wringing about our kids growing up with the drive to do a bit more than the characters in a Jack Kerouac novel.
