We wore our house keys around our necks like dog tags, walked home from school alone and let ourselves inside while our parents were still at work. We crossed busy intersections during rush hour to purchase bubble gum cigarettes with change from empty soda cans. Our playgrounds were construction sites, heaps of dirt, creeks filled with snakes and turtles we collected as pets. We climbed trees, muddied our Garanimals, scaled fences between neighbors' backyards. We were told to come in at dark, not a second earlier. We had our kids late. We cart our children to chess, robotics, baseball practice, ballet, cello, swimming lessons and birthday parties. They are rarely out of our sights. They sleep in our beds until middle school.

Our own children receive allowances for merely existing.

Tomorrow's business leaders and startup founders will be today's young kids whose parents have raised them with an entrepreneurial spirit -- a skill that is increasingly important as young people flood the startup world and the freelance economy grows. As a parent, you inspire entrepreneurship by fostering the emotional skills your child will need, such as comfort with risk, effective problem solving, and a positive attitude toward failure. "It’s all about shaping the child’s behavior," says Dr. Andrea Vazzana, clinical assistant professor of child psychiatry at New York University Langone’s Child Study Center.

However, the introduction of GMOs into the Irish environment is a bigger issue than just a question of ‘making the right decisions based on sound scientific research’.

GM crops are highly politicised, because they affect the relationship our society has with the production of food to feed its people – and for those of us here in Ireland and Europe lucky enough to eat three square meals a day, that means nearly everyone. An issue which affects our food system, our environment and the livelihoods of people working in our food and agriculture sectors is an issue for all of us. And that means it is political, and not just a question of good or bad science. Citizens and farmers have expressed their opposition to GM agriculture. Huge profits On top of this, GM crops are patented.
