Are parents the best teachers?
Here, in Armenia, people think that parents are the best teachers. They know more than children, know what's right and good for them. Here parents choose religion for their children, also in some families they choose friends, profession, food, clothes, hobbies and much more for their children, and think that it's normal. If you go to some villages, far from Yerevan, you'll see, that kids look and think like their parents, and seems like a 4 years old kid, is a 40 years old man.
I really hate this fact in Armenia. Parents don't let their children think by themselves, and that's not right. Yes, you can choose clothes or food for your kid, when he's very small, and can't understand everything yet. But you can't choose something personal for him like a boyfriend/girlfriend, orientation or religion.
Sometimes parents worry about their children too much. They think, that they can't do anything by themselves, and that they don't know much to live by their own. They don't let children think, and want them be just like themselves.
Parents really know more than us, they are older and smarter, but not everything they teach us is what we need. This is our own life, and we're responsible for our decisions. Of course we must listen to our parent's advices, but we must think and realize before following them. Each of us deserves to choose his own life, and do what he likes, and not what his parents want.
Luckily i don't have such problems yet. 🙃
