Pixelating the self as very interesting. What I found interesting is that, she was told by her parents that children should be quiet. This is a problem because it perpetuates the notion that children’s voices do not matter. It’s like when parents tell their children “because I said so” instead of giving a logical explanation for why they gave that particular instruction. I’m not a mother, so it’s not really my place to tell a mother or father how to raise their child. What I do know though, is by backing a child into a wall, they eventually rebel. This is because they’ve become restricted from expressing themselves. This is not to say that there shouldn’t be any rules in a household. But this is to say, that kids have to have some sort of voice of their own. Because what will they do when they become adults and have to speak up for themselves? They will have problems communicating because they have gotten so use to being backed in a corner, they don’t develop proper communication skills. Also, what it teaches them to do is shut other people’s voices down. It’s not a good idea to tell a child to stay silent, then when they get older tell them to speak up for themselves. Think about it, “be quiet, you’re a kid” then 10 years later when they’re 18, “speak up for yourself! You’re an adult!”. It’s a recipe for disaster. I’ll say this, if you teach your kids from an early age to speak their mind but learn to do so respectfully, it will be much more effective than just shutting them up when they’re children, then allowing them to let loose when they get older. That’s crazy man. Crazy.
