Loosen the reins and let youths decide


READING Azeem Abu Bakar’s letter, “Youths must move forward” (The Star, March 27), I feel compelled to write a similar letter but its target is the parents of our youths.

As a fairly recent graduate myself, I’m lucky that my parents did not coddle me or dictated where and what I should study and where I should work. They gave me the freedom to choose, experiment and fail, and to learn from my mistakes. Because of this, I learnt to develop my skills and became independent pretty early in my life.
