I think it’s essential we teach our children to think independently as soon as they can understand. Life is moving so fast these days due to technological innovations and the influence of social media that could impede their thinking. Their life decisions should not be driven so much by what they see and hear online but by what they know through insightful and meaningful conversations they have with their parents, elders, teachers and through their own self – reflection. This is the best system of checks and balances we have to help guide our children.
“Instead of buying your children all the things you never had, you should teach them all the things you were never taught. Material wears out but knowledge stays.” – Bruce Lee
