Mentoring Children and the Youth (Part 1)

           Those of us who are over 30 years old belong to the minority in the Philippine population of about 107 million people as of 2018.  Seventy percent of the population belong to what admirers of our demographic dividend refer to as a “young and growing population.”  Whether as parents, educators, managers and leaders of organizations, those of us who belong to the minority have a serious obligation to mentor children and the youth towards maturation so that they can be truly assets for the building of a progressive, sustainable and inclusive society.  We are fortunate to have received some very useful guidelines in carrying out this task of mentoring the young in a recent document from the Vatican that was the result of the Synod of Bishops on Young People, Faith and Vocational Discernment held in 2018.

       The historical trends, empirical findings, and policy updates are discussed in detail in the essays compiled in this book. The most convincing argument that supports the thesis of the book, i.e. that population growth is a poitive factor in attaining sustainable human development, is found in the foreword to the book, which is adopted from an article written by Mr. Roberto de Ocampo, former Finance Secretary of the Philippines and multi-awarded finance official in Asia. Thanks to the continuing growth of the Philippines population, Filipinos are in more than 100 countries all over the world, contributing much-needed foreign echange and purchasing power to the Philippine economy and fostering the human and spiritual development of the most diverse of peoples and cultures on this planet.
