According to developmental psychologists, children who are rebellious tend to be more successful adults. These psychologists contend that the characteristics that rebellious children possess such as questioning authority, pushing the envelope, & breaking rules make them assertive as adults, especially in the workplace. They further assert that rebellious children are more likely to be leaders. They contend that because of their rebellion, such children as adults have perseverance in the light of negativity. Obedient children according to these psychologists won't be as successful because they don't possess leadership skills because they have been indoctrinated to be obedient & passive & to accept things without question. Obedient children as adults will only achieve a modicum of success, if any. They will be too compliant to achieve anything significant. Do you agree? Why is obedience the WORST thing parents can instill in their children?
I agree that "children who are rebellious tend to be more successful adults" because I was the most mischievous of my mother's 5 children and was punished more than the other 4 combined. When I wanted to know something and was denied it I would do it anyway to determine the two sides to the matter, that has led me to wisdom. However, those who do it without reasoning how's, when's and when's, like Donald J Trump, has not liminits on how far they will go for what they consider as their own benefit.
Rebellious children will be more successful as adults. Psychological studies have proven this. Rebellious children refuse to take things at face value. They question things. They won't accept things because some authoritative figure said so whether it is parents, teachers, or other figures. They want to test the waters. Many successful people were rebellious children & adolescents. Rebellious children aren't afraid to have opinions different from the majority. Rebellious children are strong-willed which makes them assertive & pro-active which are crucial elements to success.
Obedient & compliant children are sheep. They are followers, never leaders. They go with the flow. Obedient/compliant children are those who obey w/o question & whether the request is right or wrong. They can be molded by parents, teachers, & authority figures for good or evil. Obedient & compliant children are yes people. They are colorless & have no initiative. Obedient & compliant children tend to be taken advantage of. They can be pushed around.
Parents, if you want your children to succeed, let them be rebellious. Rebellion shows that such children have individuality, they have leadership characteristics, & they are intelligent enough to question, & independent which are GREAT things. Obedient/compliant children are sheeple. Obedience is THE WORST thing that parents can instill in their children. Obedience is TOXIC & KILLS initiative & independence. Obedient/compliant children will never obtain success while rebellious children will be highly successful. Rebellious children are INDEPENDENT thinkers while obedient/compliant children are & will be YES people who are INCAPABLE of THINKING INDEPENDENTLY.
That I agreed with you but you do you realize every individual has their own path to live and when they become rebellious they will follow the path they are incarnated to be. The time is out for obedience to parental and school instructions. It is the time for everyone to life the life they incarnated to live. Time is out for parents, governments and religions dictating everyone's life. At this stage of civilization, about 8+ years before it ends, it has actually become "everyone for themselves and God for us all."
