Thomas Jefferson wrote, ''Determine never to be idle...It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.” In this quote Jefferson perfectly sums up life. Life and time should not be wasted by inactivity but instead should be spent with/on productivity. The purpose of life is to live and to be industrious. By constantly being active a person can accomplish many tasks and possibly goals. Being industrious and productive leads to performing well in life.
Their children have less responsibility which makes them hard to handle in the future. While as authoritative parents expect their child to be on their best and most responsible behavior. They would often teach their children the consequences of good and bad behavior. Permissive parents do not reason out or try to manipulate their children much because they do not want to over extent their power. They fear as if they use to much power on their child, the child would end up hating them so they just do whatever the child want.
Parenting style does have an affect on child development and perfectionism. Indulgent parenting suggests that because of the type of parenting children may not have the aspiration to accomplish high standards because the parents don’t enforce it as much. Neglectful parenting lacks support and order, so children that experience this type of parenting will have perfectionist motives because they look for order and want to be independent. Authoritarian parenting places a lot of pressure on children and the result of that is children that undergo this type of parenting never take on challenging projects because they’re afraid of failure and parental judgment. Children will not attempt to be perfectionists because of this.
Criss Jami, an author and philosopher, on humility once said, “The biggest challenge after success is shutting up about it.” (Jami). Heroes do amazing things every day, they are constantly inspiring us to become better versions of ourselves; however, you rarely hear the heroes brag about their accomplishments. Heroes are humble and always trying to help everyone else before themselves, heroes are not arrogant. On the contrary, this does not mean heroes do not have self confidence, this does not mean heroes thing they are unsuccessful, this means that heroes know when the right time for self loving is. In the novel The Purpose Driven Life, there’s an important sentence: “True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.” (Warren).
As the great American author Mario Puzo one said, “The strength of a family, like the strength of an army, lies in its loyalty to each other.”This is saying that loyalty gives people the ability to work together and succeed in anything they set out to do. In The Odyssey, written by Homer and translated by Robert Fagles, they really learn the power on relying on one another and seeing why loyalty is so really important in life and so nothing can get in the way to succeed in life. And as the story is going through the journeys of Odysseus he learns different way to get all the tasks and challenges done and still try to find a way home to get back to his wife and his only child. Even though he does put his crew in some unpromising situations,
Our souls send us a message about what we are here to do, but only some of us follow it. The rest are held back by obstacles, or choose to ignore the message for fear it will not bring them success. That is where bravery and selflessness step in and prove society right. Heroes have to be selfless and look past their own personal gain towards what they can do for others. We are all one hundred percent capable of becoming a hero, of following through on the hero’s journey.
The life of a Teenager of this society tends to be kept and shown to be over protected by the Olds. Honestly, I’ve notice from people around me who parents are strict while being wily about everything they should not be exploiting. On the other hand, the Teenagers are being safeguarded because the story states “The Olds like to say its because we are children” (Link 674), that statement shows Teenagers somewhat despises hard they are looked down on, but they do not understand that the Olds just care and love hard, when it comes to their children. In addition, the Teenagers are viewed in the society as being irresponsible; They show this with the incidents and recreations everyone be involved in; For example, “Plus, the Olds got mad about one of the chairs […] The unicorn broke the back to kindling” (Link 670), This had happened because the Teenagers had through one of their negligent functions, that would at the end cause society to question the children or teenager
Kids aren’t ready to be treated like adults or teens just aren’t at the right age to be doing or getting some of these things. This can be true at times but that’s why they need to prove that they are ready to be mature, they will show with actions that they are better than they used to be and that they can be trusted. Kids and teens have no way to prove that they deserve to be treated like adults or they don’t try hard enough to be seen this way. Kids and teens will try to prove that they deserve to be seen this way by proving that they can handle their responsibilities and other things and they do try hard and if they aren’t then maybe they haven’t matured. Kids and teens shouldn’t be treated by age but by maturity

If I could say one thing to the youth, it would be this: Never Give Up. Keep trying and pushing and struggling, even if you don’t know what your goal is or why you would want to achieve it. Make a point to succeed when a person says you are not capable of doing so because when you succeed you are proving not only to them that you can but to yourself. Respect the person who is doubting you because that will let them know that you are not effected by what they are saying. People will recognize you as someone who won’t give up, and they will get out of your way.
