★Advice on upbringing.★

Imam Ali ( a )-"Do not force your children to follow your ways and manners as their time is different than yours."

1200 ago Imam ali spoke about the generation gap. Times are moving v fast, and one has to keep up to the pace of the time he is living in.

The imam is not telling us to abandon our principles and values.Principles are like mountains they are unmoveable.1000 years ago God was one and he is still one. 1000 years ago telling lies, stealing, being proud were bad n offensive traits, even now its the same.

These are principles, what the imam is saying is that u change ur style, change the bottle but keep the same content .Prophet mohammed used to say "we prophets have been sent to speak to people as per level of their intellect."

The famous Lebenese poet Khalil Gibran sums this entire message beautifully. .

"Your children are not your children.They are sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.

 They come through you but not from you.And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.You may give them your love but not your thoughts,For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,For thir souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth...
