The youth are today. They are tomorrow. They are also a nation’s heartbeat. And it makes perfect sense to listen to it—to know what’s playing in their mind. It’s truer for me as the father of a 21-year-old daughter. Though not pesky by nature, I, like any dotting father, make periodic attempts at knowing what the daughter has been thinking, what gets her curious or anxious, and what her worldview is. The result, I am afraid, has been mixed so far. Though I know a great deal about my daughter, including her favourite pastimes and who her friends are, I guess there must be quite a few other things that I have no inkling about. The reason could be that like any youngster of her age, she can be cheerfully gregarious one moment and annoyingly withdrawn immediately after. The discomforting mood swings, oscillating between unquestioned obedience and inexplicable rebellion, are said to be normal for that age and have often left me bewildered. It’s a dilemma that I suppose many parents with young and impressionable children at home share.
