Self esteem battering
Full of lies
Slow to change
The worst thing I've noticed is - we all live subject to these maligned hierarchical structures.
The second worst thing thing I've noticed is - most people feel like that. How many people do you know who moan about their bosses, their underlings, the top "dawgs", the "plebs", the rich, the poor, the government....
I know my feelings on this have a huge influence on how I parent. I don't think I need to impose my authority on my daughter, or think in any way that I know better than her. Sure I have more experience which I am keen to share with her. But am I the boss of her?
What do I like?
Having a voice
Sharing the load
Sharing the gain
The fulfillment of potential
I'm sounding like an anarchist or something...
