In our society, a lot of the rebellion we see has become just another way of conforming to old norms. The old outward signs of rebellion have become just another set of rules to follow in order to be cool. And because everyone is doing it, it's not cool and it's definitely not rebellious.
The fact is, when you say no to one authority, you are saying yes to another. So…are you going to follow the rules and norms of society, or are you going to rebel? If you rebel, then what norm or authority will you submit to…and model for your children to submit to?
