What’s the easier wish for your children? That they grow up to be good-looking and funny and popular – qualities which the real world values, or that they grow up to be intelligent and well-rounded regardless of social acceptance – qualities parents (and others who aren’t any of the former qualities) value? Is it better to wish that your children succeed in a flawed world, or live differently from a flawed world and thus unaccepted?

You can wish that they grow up to be intelligent and talented and content with who they are and what they have.

You must not remember childhood.
