(3 James Casey, Rt. 3 /a//, 'Crowd' Edicts Not Necessarily Best for Youth "You iust can't make your chil dren different." That idea fre quently expressed by parents today j Is largely responsible for teen-agers j getting the upper hand with their parents. So long as parents are sold on the idea that it is a crime to make their children different in any way from "the croud the crowd is going lo run their parents. They'll demand their parents cnn't afford by plead ing that "all the other kids have such-and-such." They'll demand and get privileges they aren't old enough to have on the grounds that all the other kids jet to stay out until such and such a time or get to drive cars to high school .and so forth. They'll demand and get to do things their parents know are neither sensible or wise Just because the parents are so afraid of making their children "different." Actually what is so wrong with a child's being different from the crowd, if permitting him to be just like the crowd was detrimental to the child? Why should you let Sally have something you know you honestly can't afford, simply because she claims that if she doesn't have it she'll be "different?" Wouldn't It make more sense to let her face the fact that all families are different in what they can afford and In what they consider important? Why should yiu let your teenagers keep hours that you know aren't good for their health because if they have to come home first they'll feel "different?" When we. parents are slaves to the idea that our children mustn't be different we are doing them a. grave injustice. For we are encouraging them to believe that they must always do exactly as the crowd does. And we are neglecting the chance to show them that individuality is a precious thing, something to cultivate, rather than to be ashamed of. There's this to remember, too. H we are too impressed with the Idea that our children must not be different, they have a club over our heads. By using it they can make us overrule our better judgment. That can make us weak, when we need to be strong.
