This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family.
It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?
His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to prevent suffering, leading back to it.
Let me know what you think - I find these real-world dilemmas very stimulating.
