I was thinking today how hard it is when someone is in conflict with their family.
It sometimes seems to be a “natural” part of growing up (at least in our times and in the West) for adolescents and teens to feel constricted by their families.
It’s almost a cliche that youth has the enthusiasm and will to do and age has the wisdom but has lost the drive to execute.
And it can be so hard on young people to find their enthusiasm reined in by “practical” parents who are perhaps a bit too worried about what will happen if…
On of my favorite parts of The Way to Happiness is the section “Love and Help Children.”
