Cambodians have a saying, “As roses have thorns, so love has dangers; as a heron soaring high will eventually be trapped, so secret love will eventually be discovered”. If we know about the thorns, why do we allow ourselves to be stabbed again and again? Because love is one of life’s sweet pleasures, a natural feeling that everyone finds it hard to shake off.
Some say that we should not encourage young people to talk about love as it would just arouse them, but actually such conversations help keep them safe. Enabling young people to learn about matters of love by discussing and finding solutions to common problems, helping them by giving good advice, this will give them the ability to choose wisely when they face their own crises.
This book explores issues of youth relationships, especially the boy-girl relationship itself, relations with parents and with other trusted elders. It gives practical, everyday advice through the medium of many real-life examples. In addition, this book helps young people grasp their value as a person so that they can avoid the pitfalls on love’s path.
