A REALITY CHECK& WAKE UP CALL:
A KICK IN THE PANTS TO
PARENTS AND CHILDREN OF
 CURRENT GENERATION

To anyone with kids of any age and to kids themselves here is some advice from the world's richest man Bill Gates. Bill Gates is the self-made creator and owner of Microsoft Corporation whose operating system makes 80 percent of the computers in the world functional.

Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school.

He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.
 

Rule 1:  Life is not fair - get used to it!

Rule 2: The world would not care about your self-esteem The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You would not  be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping - they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it is not your parents` fault, so do not whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents were not  as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try
delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they we will give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This does not bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9:  Life is not divided into semesters. You do not get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you will end up working for one.
