How we can help our children to believe in the future
Society and teenagers are experiencing the same crisis, with the same fears, and both are obliged to confront it. They know that they will emerge transformed in some respect…but have no… Read more idea how. Moreover, even if autonomy and independence are constantly being valorised, current restraints mean that the young are forced to rely on their parents for much longer than before. But the parents are also enduring the crisis, and French schools do not infuse the young with enthusiasm. It is this seemingly dead-end situation that Philippe Jeammet analyses here. He sums up the basic facts: teenagers need to develop in three essential domains: they must take care of their bodies, develop their abilities (including the academic) and develop their social skills. Among those values we pass on to our children, the duty to preserve hope is fundamental. We must believe in the future, this is a characteristic of all living creatures, to advance, even when they are unaware of what lies ahead.
