If your children show apathy for local environmental issues, fail to participate in community work, but can present truckload of information on Amazon jungle in school competition then it is epic failure! Soon, he or she will suffer from information overload! It is failure of school, teachers and parents who appreciate dry information and neglect real actions!
Take corrective measures! Keep them away from information monsters like Google and NatGeo until they spend more time in local community work.
Tell them: Saving and feeding cows, planting and nurturing trees, keeping streets clean is more important than knowing how African Lion treats visitors in remote corner of Africa! To ACT is more important than to know useless information.
