Galilei Galileo

Advice Or Instruction

Advice usually comes from a more life-experienced adult. The younger individual to whom the 'advice' is offered may not appreciate the advice for what it is: a suggestion or something to think about. It may be wrongly interpreted as an instruction. Misunderstood.
   The advice is probably from the adult's personal experience and cannot be generalised. Advice is not an instruction, simply something that should be considered.

Even that has choice.
