Responsibility or Creativity?

Ryu reflects [es] on Intereses de un Caballero Dragón [Interests of a Dragon Gentleman] whether priorizing responsibility or creativity in children's education:

Los padres podrán cargar de algunas o muchas responsabilidades a sus hijos para que permanezcan con los pies sobre la tierra pero eso no garantiza que éstos últimos las cumplan, mucho menos que sigan apegados a la realidad. También es necesario que consideren hasta dónde desean que sus hijos tengan éxito en la vida, porque quizás sea mejor y más útil formar en sus hijos un espíritu creativo y una ética férrea para que si llegan a cambiar al mundo, éste cambio sea para el desarrollo y bien de la humanidad.

Parents may give their children some or many responsibilities so they have their feet on the ground, but that doesn't mean they will comply, let alone for them to be stuck with reality. It's also necessary for parents to consider where do they want their children to be successful in life, as it might be better and more useful to form your children with a creative mind and a rigid ethics so if they happen to change the world, this change will be for human development and well being.
