What they do not realise is that the blank page is what they seek inside themselves, they are yearning for clarity and simplicity which is the place from which they originated before birth into a physical body. The whole process is destructive because they carry this method of action forward throughout their entire life never reaching completion they simply move on to the next page of life. With this pattern of thought nobody can ever derive their full potential out of any situation as they are cultivating quantity rather than quality and will continue to do so until life teaches them otherwise.
This can be done through love and responsibility and teaching them to make full use of their surroundings rather than the usual method where the parent simply points out the errors that are being made but offering no further solution. Many parents are quick to jump on their children for a lack of understanding and wonder why they keep on repeating the same mistakes but are rarely offering solutions and merely pointing out problems.
It is obvious that we only know what we have been taught or that which we teach ourselves so we have a responsibility to the education of ourselves which in turn educates our children. It is often those who think they are the best parents that disable their children via their own ego structure because they have blocked both parties from the critical learning process. The child will also imitate and eventually operate from the same field and pattern throughout their own life with limited understanding and insufficient power to overcome the difficulties of life.
