Are We Creating Utopia For Our Kids?

Idealism is out, practicality is in…

We want our children to have idols and role models in their lives, but do we want them to behave ‘ideally’? These are the times when having ideals and principles in life is not considered smart. Utilitarian, pragmatic and business-like approach is what we want our children to adopt in life because we feel that these traits will act as a protective shield on our children’s innocence and vulnerability. This thinking of ours reflects our double standards because we also wish that the world is ideal for our children.

Ideal behaviour could be the only counter to cruel and aggressive behaviour…  

It’s disheartening to see teenagers bullying each other on the basis of social status, children as young as 13-14 years committing suicides or an ever increasing number of juveniles committing crimes of high levels of cruelty. It’s when such things happen that we talk of ideals. It’s then that the voices of concern start coming from all over. We may refer to having an ideal state of affairs “Utopia” that lacks existence but we all wish for Utopia for our kids where no one misguides them, maltreats them or makes fun of their attempts or dreams. We wish that every human being whom our child comes in contact with fits in that mould with the periphery of the highest tenets of humanity.

It’s a beautiful world out there, but is it fair?

The question is what do we aim of achieving by teaching ideal behaviour to our children? The answer is by doing so we’ll make this beautiful place a ‘fair’ place as well where we don’t have to teach our children tit for tat. Mahatma Gandhi once said, “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.” But today it’s considered cool to mock such principles because it’s not considered attainable. And the reason we do that is that when we look around we see ample examples to prove that the world around us has shaped up in such a way that by being good we’ll only end up suffering. We hesitate to alter this trend. We look at others’ faces when it comes to pioneering something. We must admit that nobody is going to gift our children this ‘fairy land’ where goodness commands everything else. All of us have to work towards achieving this by teaching our children to behave ideally.

Who will initiate the big change and when?

We are the society. We have always weaved around us the kind of culture we wanted. So why not now? Why don’t for once we stop being cynical in teaching our children ideal behaviour no matter what, and teach them to behave in a manner we want his peers to behave.

Idealism is not an alien concept. We have always wanted to see the kind of world we have been told exists in the moral stories. It’ll be a delight being in the process of transforming that theory into reality. And it cannot be real until and unless we practice it ourselves and set examples for our children to follow the same.

Last but not the least, we want our child to be good to us and his/her siblings and to the society at large but it’ll only happen when he/she appreciates and practices goodness in all walks of life.
