This week: The New Dilemma
There is nothing new about the dilemma of parents who want to protect their children from the harsh realities of life and give them at the same time the freedom and independence young people demand. But in today's world of conflicting moralities the older generation may still regard emotional experience as something that needs a decent covering of conventional morality. Their children can hardly escape the urgent pressures of the new morality.
Many youngsters today find themselves in a world of double-think. Perhaps the saddest manifestation of the conflict is that it is those on the fringe of it who get hurt most.
