Ok, so i got a visit from my cousin. He has a 10y.old kid (a boy). He always talk to that kid like he is grown up and not a child. And this time he started some strange philosophical conversation about success in life. Then he says to the kid something along these lines: "You are actually just a piece of meat, there is nothing special about you, but the good news is that its up to you to change that, its possible.". So is it ok to talk to children like they were grownups? Do you agree with his "piece of meat" approach? Also the thing is my cousin is relatively successful in many aspects of life. Maybe he knows what he is talking about. What do you think?
