    in my case i think acceptance is just treating someone equally & giving them the same respect you would anyone else, regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity.. you don't have to understand it, you don't have to agree with it, but you still can treat them equally & like decent human beings [or treat them like crap, if they are crappy people] .. it goes both ways. i know people that still don't understand my lifestyle, but they treat me well & accept me, some of my closest friends don't get it, but they will still ride for me. accepting people reminds me of the stance that a lot of companies have taken as far as treating lgbt/race/ & any other discriminated against group of people, you will respect them if you wish to work here, no options, no discrimination, doesn't matter what you agree with or think personally, this is the law of the company. i think by saying you want your child NOT to do something, isn't fully accepting, the reasoning behind why charlemagne wouldn't want his child being _______ [jobs, discrimination etc..] is the exact reason WHY we need people to be accepting & fight for the rights of everyone to be equal, ignorning the problem just because your child or family isn't involved doesn't help the situation at all.

    lol, [sidenote ..did you just switch your thread up completely as i was typing !?]

    its only beneficial if the kid knows how to think. read to your kids. explain to your kids. teach your kids all the time. 

    I talked back all the time. Was eventually kicked out. Already as successful as my parents in half the time. Better credit. Better job. Heathier relationships. Better tastes. Etc. Because I understood things and had my own opinions on fairness.

    My bother talks back out of anger, spite, and rebellion. I'd be surprised if he doesnt end up in jail

    I was a pretty defiant kid, but I didn't get into any serious trouble. I was just a smart ***** to adults. [​IMG]  I remember when I first hinted to my mother I wasn't christian, she gave me the.

    I thought I was smarter than every adult that was around me. I talked back alot. I questioned EVERYTHING, I still do. Some say I am difficult, others say I ask great questions. The ones that call be difficult are usually the ones that can't give answers.

    yeah I just asked questions a lot. Made my cousin cry at the age of 8 because I told her I was too smart for church and she thought I was going to hell etc.

    Never really cared for people telling me what to do and still don't. I'll only listen to you if you're more successful than me in the area of topic. I've been that way. Except I'm an adult so I'm not a "bad kid" anymore for doing what I want. I was never an ******* as a kid. You just knew there was no point in trying to lecture me or get me to do something I wasn't down with.

    So far I have learned on NT that all the loud mouth C-students that I knew in school are now probably flourishing

    Makes sense that your internet persona applies to real life as well

    Yeah.
    "Successful" is very subjective.
