Encouraging children to become like others
1. Encouraging children to become like others develops a child who is always trying to be like everyone else. He is trying to be like his cousin, sister, brother, kid next door. There is no unique ‘him.’
2. He’s always looking over his shoulder to decide what he should be doing in any situation because he’s been taught to look at others and do as they do.
3. He fails to bring his unique perspective to life’s undertakings because he doesn’t believe in his uniqueness. He believes in being like everyone else.
4. He lacks creativity because he has nothing new to offer. He has to offer what everyone else has to offer.
5. He lives an unfulfilled life because his subconscious mind tells him to do his own thing, but he is not sure what to do on his own.
A child who spends his life becoming like others leads an unconfident life because he can’t consult his own internal signals to decide what to do in life. Deep down he believes that the right thing to do is to look at others.
