Alexander’s Question or Topic
Alexander is from Pennsylvania. He is helping many teenagers from his generation by giving them mental support. He has had a passion for BMX since he was a kid, and now he wants to start a BMX company. But his parents want him to do well in school instead.
Gary’s Story and Advices
Alexander’s parents were wrong when they told him that they knew him better than he knew himself, that they only have his best interests at heart.
Alexander’s parents don’t have a prayer of knowing him better, not even in the universe. They have no clue what’s in his dome. So the best thing Alexander should do is to start having real conversations with the parents and start pushing back on false things, even if it is scary.
