Column: Kids should pick own hobbies

Through my website, a parent recently asked if children who don't want to continue piano lessons should be forced to stay the course regardless. I answered that I don't approve, generally, of forcing children into activities they don't want to be in.

Where optional activities are concerned, childhood should be a time of fairly free-form experimentation.
