To be there or not to be there, this is the value
Every child or young person is important and they are now, not when they grow up. Too often young people hear adults say: “when you are grown up you can”, “this is a speech for adults and when you are grown up you will understand”, “you can do it when you are of age”. No, now you can.
I can explain this speech to you, I can give you my time because you are so precious to me right now, not when you grow up. If we value each individual, we can get out of the behavioral pattern where we measure all the superfluous, the sales, the calls made in an hour, the packages delivered, the square meters of cut grass and we forget to recognize one very important thing: the singularity of each. In a social group, when we are not alone but there are more than two of us, whether or not we are there or not, it makes a lot of difference. Not because we would be one less or one more, but because there is a big difference between you or someone else, you with your wealth of memories, defects, merits. You who can do a job or a game in one way or another, you who bring a point of view. The person is worth regardless of the grade he gets in mathematics, the number of packages he delivers, how many contracts he sells. It is up to us to recognize its real value, to understand the role it can have or the level of contribution it can bring to the social group to which it belongs.
On the educational farmthere are no grades, the deck of cards is mixed up, the class ranking starts from scratch. Spending time with the class or doing alternation between school and work seems to us to be the right way to go in search of everyone’s value. Those who are less afraid of approaching a horse twice as high as all children may have their moment of popularity, who is not afraid of making a mistake in speaking English , who is quick to pick herbs or who has a grandmother who taught him the difference between sage and mint Then we will see that the top of the grammar class could ask for help from someone they never would have considered before, they could find that it is good to be friends with them, we could all discover that a child or a boy is important now and everyone is important in their own way. Being there you or someone else then is really a value.
