Problem No 12 - Parents keep believing what they think would affect their teenagers

while forgetting an interesting quote from Picasso:

“When I was a child, my mother said to me, 'If you become a soldier, you'll be a general. If you become a monk you'll end up as the Pope.' Instead I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.”

Problem No 11 - Parents keep telling their teenagers to grow up

... forgetting that

when "they tell their children to grow up, they meant for their children to stop growing".

This post is inspired from the quote from Pablo Picasso

"When they tell you to grow up, they mean stop growing."

Problem No 10 - Parents keep telling their teenagers what to do and not what to do

...instead of letting them try to figure it out for themselves.

Here's a quote from the TV series, "In Plain Sight" Season 2 Episode 11 (Jailbait):

Eve walks around the Garden of Eden - happy as can be... not even thinking about apples

Then, one day God says
"Oh, by the way, everything here is for you... enjoy, frolic, eat but whatever you do, stay away from the apples."

Next thing you know, all Eve can think about is those juicy red apples.

Taking a break from Problems - Point to Ponder

What the hell is this discerning of good and evil if it costs so much?
The whole world of knowledge is not worth the tears of a child for the dear kind God.

Problem No 8 - Parents want their children to receive total holistic education in schools...

... but disallow the children to go asking for donations for a charitable cause - such as the construction of a new school building.

These parents think that getting donations makes their children beggars and not students. But by forbidding their children to ask for money, are they not telling their children that they are different (perhaps of a higher status?) than the beggars on the streets?

The schools think it is part and parcel of the holistic education process for the students to go out to ask for money in school uniforms. The schools think that they are not making beggars of the students. But take away the uniforms and replace them with worn-out clothes, don't we have beggars in our midst?
