“The person who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The person who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever seen before.”
― Albert Einstein
Walk alone only if you have the capability to climb the chair.
Else just move with the crowd and be safe.
Unless We have talent like Albert Einstein, Do not believe quotes from highly intelligent souls like Albert Einstein.
There are many advantages in following the crowd than trying to lead the crowd. The difference is exactly similar to that of a leader and follower. Its not possible for the entire crowd to become a leader as there will be no followers left and no work can be done without followers as the leaders mostly give command and intelligence.
Do not teach the kids to be a leader.
Do not convince them at an young age that they are unique.
Both are perfect examples of a bad parenting. Be aware that, No one is unique in this world. The positive contributions that each one offer to this earth is what makes them unique.
Teach them that all creatures including a bacteria is life and is as important as their life. Teach them that nothing is created for the consumption of humans. Teach them the value of contributing positively to the society.++
The person who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The person who walks alone is likely to find him or herself doing something remarkable.
What does it mean to be a good parent? Parents have always been seen as the ones who should take care of their children and guide them on the right path. But in today’s society, where are kids supposed to learn about life if not from their parents?
Children need to be taught how to speak up for themselves. They need to know that they are worth it and that they deserve happiness just as much as anyone else does. A good parent is someone who teaches his or her child that he or she can do anything, even if the odds seem impossible.
There is a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson that goes, “A man standing alone can be attacked and win, but a man with friends can’t be attacked.”
Perhaps this is true for parenting as well. We are the friends of our Kids, We are the Parents of our Kids, We are the Teacher of our Kids.
We are not saying that being a parent is easy. It’s actually one of the most difficult jobs in the world. But it’s also one of the most rewarding.
