Pro

i agree that adults are those people who see a child from their mere childhood and they know what a child likes and what not but nowadays adults are so bk to earn busy with their work to earn money they hardly understand a child's feeling.............

in some cases that may be true but some adults are understanding and can find time to work with them

Pro

there are always some exceptions but most of them even have no time to spend with their family

Con

Maybe you give them less credit than they deserve. For if they stayed with their families instead of doing overtime or just plain working you and everyone else would have no money

Pro

children have a very sharp mind and they are so attentive that they can act according to the feeling of the man standing in front of them............. it is rightly remarked that 'a child is a father of a man'

Most adult think they understand the young, because they all claim to know what it means to be a child, or young adult. Only thing is a child knows exactly what it means to be an adult by the time they turn 16 or younger, it's just a matter of accepting it,or finding their own path.

Because what adult really do is, looking and compare their experience as a child and as a young adult to the new young and young adult. 60 or 70 years ago adult then had a different understanding of the young.

Because the outside world had little influence on the young, the young experience what the old did, they learn by watching and doing.

Today you might be in the same room with someone, but they are far out of this planet, your mind might just be within your environment but theirs is in a digital world full of creatures that only your imagination can comprehend.
Old knowledge are not yet invalid, but will be soon, so to understand the new young and young adults of this time, you have to know, how much things have change, how much people have change.

The things that will make you angry might be of no important to the new world, things you consider a serious danger might be an opportunity of learning for the new, and things you might consider a wast of time might just be educating the new one in a way you might never know.

Their come a time when you can only learn so much from the pass, it's time to start learning from the future that is truly unlimited.
