Growing Up

That was then this is now

Changing Thoughts

As people grow up, they start to think differently about things in life. Carl Jung said," Growing up is loosing some illusions, in order to acquire others." This is explaining how people have to lose some of their thoughts to gain some better one's as they grow up. Like Bryon in the story has to mature and change his thinking in order to live a happier life.

Being Informed

People grow up only know what the older people of the world tell them. " children are educated by what the grown up is and not by his talk"( This is saying that the young people of the world are only taught by what the older people know.

This is not always a good thing. It may not always be a good thing because the future generations may be misinfomed with wrong information that the older generations know, but they may not be correct in todays society. I think people should be tought more about the facts about life and not opinions from people.

The message

The author of That Was Then This is Now had a message about growing up. I think this message was that in order to survive in life, you must grow up and change the way you think in order to have a strong knowledge about life. As you grow up you must start making adult decisions and you can't do that if you don't grow up.
