Week 9: “What one rule from your childhood do you not agree with now that you’re an adult?”
“Do not hit/pick on someone younger than you.”
This rule was made because obviously if you’re older and have more strength it would be a disadvantage for the other kid, but as a child I took this literally. I’m Vietnamese, like most asian, we have hierarchy in our society and call each other big sister/brother or little sister/brother. If someone happen to be older than me but is under me socially, for his mom/dad is beneath my parents socially, then he or she is considered to be “younger” than me in term of social hierarchy, therefore I could not pick on him/her. That rule was stupid because I can’t beat the crap out of them even if they annoyed me.
As an adult, that rule has gone out the window and I even abuse of my power.
