“….So allow your children to grow in freedom. Of course it is risky, but what can be done? Life is a risk, but every growth is possible in danger and risk. Don’t protect them too much or they will become hothouse plants – almost useless. Let them be wild. Let them struggle in life, let them grow on their own, and they will always be grateful to you. And you will always be happy, because later on you will see an aliveness in them.”

From Everyday Osho on Parenthood

    Perhaps that’s why i go dizzy in Hothouses and start looking for tyhe nearest possible exit.
