I am puzzled by this wonderful proverb. As a parent, I know I should give more freedoms to the kids. “Leave the kids alone!” Is it the right approach to parenting?
No. I don’t think so. If we just leave the lamp alone, it may never be lit. So the parents should generate a good condition to let lamp to be lit whenever the lamp wants to be lit. The problem is how the parent should do in order to generate this condition, when will the lamp want to be lit, what kind of patience the parents should have. Do you have some suggestions on it?
As for chess, I think daily excise will help to generate this condition, such as half an hour’s puzzles excise. What else, could you please name one?
When will the lamp want to be lit? No one knows, I would like the kids having a good time, the job of parents is to “Wait!” Do you agree?
