dad reminded me of the short tale of The Emperor's New Clothes...
"An Emperor who cares for nothing but his wardrobe hires two weavers who promise him the finest suit of clothes from a fabric invisible to anyone who is unfit for his position or "just hopelessly stupid". The Emperor cannot see the cloth himself, but pretends that he can for fear of appearing unfit for his position or stupid; his ministers do the same. When the swindlers report that the suit is finished, they dress him in mime and the Emperor then marches in procession before his subjects. A child in the crowd calls out that the Emperor is wearing nothing at all and the cry is taken up by others. The Emperor cringes, suspecting the assertion is true, but holds himself up proudly and continues the procession."
in Egypt the oldie said for 30 or may be 59 yrs "life is good" while it was piece of shit and "that's enough" while they got literally nothing and "we should forgive" while they are beaten !!
they tried to transfer this fear to their children, over the generations till we reached a point when the youth began to refuse and discuss. the oldie accused them of being impolite. then the youth said "but the emperor isn't wearing anything at all!".
then the oldie discovered that they were blind or at least fear made them so...
please let your child express himself and teach him how to make a decision and choose freely and don't handicap your children by making their lives easy

I'll post here some of my tweets during our revolution which started January 25th, and inspired the whole world...
sorry I couldn't reference each, you can google any to get the author's name. and some are mine of course
courage is not the absence of fear, courage is to move despite your fear
I hate politics and could spend a whole month without reading news, but I adore freedom... even animals seek it
they can whip my body... but not my soul
he who is brave is free
The secret of happiness is freedom. The secret of freedom is courage
Man is free at the moment he wants to be
No one is free when others are oppressed
we prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery
any existence deprived of freedom is a kind of death
Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed
only our faith in freedom can keep us free
it's very hard to beat a person who never gives up
remember that we will survive, this is January twenty-five
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you... then you WIN
Fear can hold you prisoner, Hope can set you free
ideas don't die, ideas are bulletproof
in the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved
a slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him, we are free
every battle has its victims, this time they are heroes
if you're not brave, you're not going to be free
nonviolence is a weapon of the strong
we all have to make sacrifices... for the common good
run without a destination, and you'll finally see, what freedom can be
better to die free in happiness than to live caged in fear
They can beat me, torture me, and even kill me. Then they will have my dead body, but not my obedience
Freedom is not the way you speak, or act. It's the way you live your life
True freedom comes when you think, "there is nothing to lose"
everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done
don't walk like u rule the world... walk like u don't care who does
only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go
success comes in cans; failure in can'ts
Wisdom is knowing what to do next, Skill is knowing how to do it, and Virtue is doing it
emotions never made a better world, it's attitude then thinking and good planing and potential then you can add emotions as a spices
one of the best things is the power to forgive, and accepting your opponent/other's opinion is a bless
justice means crime cannot be tolerated... criminals thrive on the indulgence of society's understanding
