Calling for shame and charity in order to get our country to pay attention to poverty or the lack of mobility is old, and wrong. For 50 years, the stories from the war on poverty have almost singularly tried to shame us into addressing these issues, but, ultimately, they harm the cause.

Vocational discernment is about doing your homework and figuring out what is out there and what is not. It's about listening to your heart instead of the voices of others when deciding what to do. It's about deciding to explore and try and not worry about saving face or what others might think.

A long time ago, I cheered for my adorable smiling preschooler as he hit the tee, and finally the ball after his fifth swing. The following year, I asked Nikolas if he'd like to play T-ball again and he replied, "No, baseball is a waste of my life." A few years passed and Nikolas announced he'd like to give the sport another try.

It isn't "treatment" to withhold food and water from a youth. It isn't treatment to beat a teenager. And nothing should ever be considered treatment that involves denial of medical care, solitary confinement, electric shocks or public humiliation. That's not therapeutic. That's child abuse.
