Her Own Passion

By Anne Milliken

Salt Lake City, UT – There's a term for children whose lives are so prescribed that they go from one activity, one lesson, to the next and never have time to make their own choices. The book, "The Hurried Child," so influenced one mother that she decided if her children read and traveled, got into trouble and faced the consequences, maybe they'd discover their own passion. The youngest of producer Anne Milliken's four daughters will leave home next year. So this summer, she went on a three week road trip with her 17-year-old to watch her compete in horseback riding, a passion her daughter discovered on her own.
