teenagers need support from their parents. However, parents also
need to step back and allow their children to learn through their own
experiences, which will add to their inner strength and help develop
coping skills so they're better prepared to tackle whatever life throws
way. Teenagers learn far more about life from their own actions
learn from listening to others. All teens make mistakes, but it's
case that the eventual outcome is a positive experience that leads to
self-growth. Teens learn many lessons by tackling life's
on their own, without parental help or interference. Likewise, the
of fixing their own mistakes can also be a learning experience for

Ralph Waldo Emerson
Little children are still the symbol

If you are like me, most
valuable parts of your childhood did not
take place in a special classroom or perfect practice field. Sure,
you had teachers and parents to encourage you to do your best
and work toward a goal, but that was balanced by plenty of other
worthwhile pursuits such as tearing apart a Stretch Armstrong doll
to see what was inside, building bike ramps in the driveway,
and racing leaf boats through a drainage ditch in a rainstorm.

children learn, by wiggling skills through their fingers and
their toes, into themselves. By soaking up habits and
of those around them, by pushing and pulling their own worlds.
Thus children learn, more through trial than error, more
pleasure than pain, more through experience than suggestion
and telling, and more through suggestion than direction.
children learn through affection, through love, through
through understanding, through belonging, through doing and
being. Day by day children come to know a little bit of
know, a little bit more of what you think and
which you dream and believe are in truth what is becoming
children. As you perceive dully or clearly, as you think
sharply, as you believe foolishly or wisely, as you dream
or goldenly, as you bear false witness or tell the truth,
thus children learn.

|Parents sometimes forget that after the child emerges from the utter physical and mental helplessness of infancy, it is becoming more and more an individual.
As an individual it may show decided tastes, preferences and inclinations in some direction.
No parent and no person can break or alter these tastes and preferences.
No one can make that child's mind over into something else.
For the child's mind as we call it, is really a mind or spirit, which has lived other physical lives from infancy to maturity, if not to old age, and as it comes into possession of its new body, and acquires a relative control over that body, it will begin to act out the man or woman as it was in its former life, and that may be a man or woman very closely related to the parent or hardly related at all.
But in any event, the parent is dealing with an individual, who is growing more and more into tastes, preferences, and traits of character which belong to and are a part of it These must have expression.
They will have expression in mind or spirit, whether allowed to physically or not.
If the boy is ever longing to go to sea, and the parent forbids, the boy is on the sea in mind; and if so in mind, it is far better that his body should follow, for there is only damage when mind and body are not working in correspondence together.
If the mother refuse to allow the boy to go to sea because she fears its dangers for him, still she is loving her own fears and her own way, too, more than she does her son.

A child should be taught from its earliest life to find entertainment in
every kind of condition or weather. If it hears its elders cursing and
bemoaning a rainy day the child's plastic mind is quick to receive
the impression that a rainy day is a disaster. How much better to
expatiate in its presence on the blessing of rain, and to teach it the
enjoyment of all nature's varying moods, which other young animals feel.
