Too often the benefit of new knowledge is precluded by the loss of perspective inherent in a more comfortable lifestyle. Technology gives us great ability, but the ease of convenience taxes our discipline. We gain the power of adulthood, but lose the sincerity and courage of youth. We afford greater influence to our fears in the name of changing times. Children need our resources and wisdom, not our direction and authority. Everyday we are asked to face our fears, and for our children to rise to their full potential, we must not put the battle aside, but rather give them room to explore and be prepared to witness true genius.
