I am sitting in a calm and coll room. Computer is laying before me and I am participating the discussion on mylot. But I am listening the shout of the children playing in the street. They are running very charmly and throwing crackers blasting for sharp reports. They are in initial stage of their lives.They are also throwing the stones. I am thinking with wonders, that why they all are doing this meanless practice. Will you please help me to response it.

Nothing is meaningless! I think you also know this! And yes you yourself has said that 'they are in initial stage of their lives.' So they are full of vital energy and to through it out is instinctive, so they are shouting! That's all!

At least they are outside playing. So many children now stay indoors at all times, maybe playing video games, etc. Not out in the world making friends. I am sure when you were a child, you shouted, ran amuck and probably did some things that left adults thinking "why on earth would he do that?" I know I sometimes look at the kids of today and think,"was I like THAT?" And you know what, I probably was or worse. I do think some things kids do, should be watched closer. But running around outside, yelling and screaming and playing, is totally normal. And they are doing this "meanless prcatice" because they are "in the initial stage of their lives" They are kids, children. They are supposed to act like children. What a boring world if kids were not allowed to just be kids.

Maybe they just don't have anything better to do. They shout because they're having so much fun and forget about everything else, how they should play without making noises and so on.
