...rOPINION ALL I REALLY NEED T O K N O W . . . David P. Srern Recently I picked up a paperback t h a t was lying around the house, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, a collection of short essays by Robert Fulghum. Years ago when it topped the best seller list, it somehow passed me by (but not my wife, who must have brought it home). The first essay in the book stated Fulghum's personal credo—what he really needed to know, he claimed to have learned in kindergarten. What is a physicist's credo? What things does a physicist need to know? I thought it over and compiled a list, and here it is. Your priorities might differ—this is the list of a theorist concerned with research. None of the items listed was learned in kindergarten; in fact, none was part of my university or graduate curriculum. It turns out t h a t all I really need to know about physics I had to dig up by myself. A physicist's credo Keep notes of ideas, lectures and work. Memory fades but what is written down stays yours. While young you may wing it, but once you turn 40 or 50, your notes—numbered, dated, indexed and collected in binders—make all the difference between still doing useful work and spinning your wheels. Rough notes are but a fading latent image. Transcribe them, don't wait. Edit what you produce, illustrate it, use neat handwriting or, better still, use a word processor....
Thoughts are great for kids as that is their own.
Children have many interests and thoughts of their own which they wish to express by choosing their favorite and in which they are good at stream or career. They are very conscious about themselves. When parents chose the children have no role in playing in their own life .Most of them hate their jobs. Loving their own jobs let them grow better in their life.The kids can ask \tell the parents that "I are going to take this job "and if the parents allow that would be good.
No, parents should not play a role in deciding the future of their children.
Parents often tend to want their children to be like them or not do something because they never had a chance to. It's not the parent's life, it's the child's. The child has to learn to make decisions of their own in life and then deal with the consequences. Parents need to let go a little bit and let their kids live their lives. If they're happy with what they decide for their future, then that's all that matters.
A child has his own decisions
Alright, parents should have a say at least, but they shouldn't just plan their child's future, not caring for the child's say on their own future. If the child doesn't like it then they wont try hard and will wind up failing and having nothing in life...
It's not okay to raise children like that.
Alright, so say you want to go to college. Your parents want to choose a good one for you, like Harvard University. However, you want a different college, other than the one they want. When you tell them about that, they'll say no, and that's bad for the person wanting to go to college, especially since he's supposed to be an adult who can make his own decisions. Imagine if every aspect of your life was decided by your parents, including your house, your husband/wife and just about everything else! Wouldn't that be awful?
We are free to decide
Parents need to be understanding instead of ordering, they need to have patience instead of overconfidence, they should not play a decisive role but an active and supportive role. They need to hatch the egg instead of smashing it.
They should not compare their child with others as their child is their's and others have their own.
We respect their emotions but can't be an emotion in ourselves...
You will not be dare for their whole life
Seriously, you can't plan their whole life for them. By doing so, you are practically ruining their life. What if you are not there for them anymore? None of us can live forever. You have to let them make their own decisions so they can be independent when they are older.
Because their child have his / her own life
I am against because some parents are not good for their child . In his / her childhood some parents want to became a teacher , doctor , businessman , architecture etc . But in their age they cannot became anything . So when their child grow up they want his/ her child became that they want . Then his / her child have their own dreams about his / her future
It's a child's choice
It is a kids choice of what they want to do in their life, children often do bad things such as underage drinking and illegal drugs because they have had no freedom and have never had a good time in their life. These kids had no child hood and are trying to live it in the future when different things are used to have fun with.
It's MY Life! They Have Their Own Lives!
There's a reason people reproduce, and it's not to have their own little minions like in the Sims. We each are born INDIVIDUAL and FREE! Liberty doesn't mean you have the right to own your property as well as your neighbor and his property. It means every man is born free and equal, with the right to own their OWN property, protected with given rights. The parent's have no right to tell their children they MUST grow up to be a doctor! What if they're legally blind!? Are they still expected to perform heart surgery? Everyone who votes in favor of the adults being able to dictate their children's lives have already lived theirs. It's not fair, and will in fact lead to resentment. The parents do have the right to step in when the children get out of control (cursing, drinking, drugs, smoking, causing self harm, etc), but truthfully, individuality is key here. The parents are to raise their kids up right (going to church), love them unconditionally, and punish them when necessary, but they shouldn't let their power go to their heads. For example, when a 16 year old girl has a boyfriend, the parents have no right to break them up JUST because they don't like him. It's the girl's relationship, which they have no business in without granted permission. They do have a right to sit down with the girl and calmly explain why they feel the way they do (or explain they want to protect her), but she's turning into a woman, and it's her who's going to marry they guy. It's her choice who she dates. The biggest problem with parents now is that they're either too controlling, which shows zero respect for the children and accepting them as who they are, or they don't care enough. In both cases, the child does feel like nothing they do is ever good enough. I'm not asking for people to be perfect parents, I'm just asking for you to realize that you DON'T always know what's best. You're humans, too, you make mistakes! Please think about how you treat your kids, because once they turn 18 and move out, they may hate you the rest of their lives. I know most of you don't care about "fair", because "life isn't fair", but does that mean that you have to add to it? Really? You guys don't understand. You grew up in a different time than we did. Our lives are separate, and different. Your kids want to talk to you about their lives, but you keep pushing them away when you don't even consider how they feel. I'm not saying give into everything they want and raise brats, I'm saying stop dictating and listen! We just want to be heard and accepted! Accept that we have the rights to live our own lives the way we want when it comes down to it!
Not by a long shot
As thecsoon to be ex husband of a woman ...Girl, who has been controlled her whole life, I must say, it certinly has not helped her, only confused and made her ashamed of choices she felt forced into. She is not happy with her life because its not hers, just an extension of her parents.
