Is coercive parenting practiced by African cultures the reason for the lack of innovative African youth?
i am an African and i am currently living in the U.S.A and so far what i find most moving and inspiring is the innovative spirit which the American youth have. .Every time i ask someone what they want to do with their lives i get interesting answers about these different profession where as back home all i hear is the same old things such as accountant, lawyer, teacher etc.i did some research as to why this is so and the one sticking point i found was the difference in the parenting style.i is the coercive parenting style practiced in many African homes the reason for the lack of innovation in Africa and the reason for the slow economic growth experienced by many African countries ?
