Young people in families are often treated as though their opinions don’t matter because they’re young and haven’t seen the world as adults have and haven’t experienced it as the adults have.
This impacts a lot on the personalities of young adults, it may make them feel inadequate in social settings, they may feel inferior in front of their friends. Parents and families should allow expression of feelings in a safe and healthy manner, they should be explained the pros and cons of everything and every decision they want to make. Homes are supposed to be a nurturing ground for young people in order for them to grow and thrive.
Kindness is not something that’s hard to show. It’s the little gestures that go a long way. Be kind to friends at school, be kind to family members. Everyone is an individual in themselves can do wonders when given the right tools to work with.
