Re: Even at Boot Camp...no one can reach inside you and make you feel. Your feelings
Guiding, controlling and manipulating are similar, but they could convey a difference in intention.
Guiding could imply patient benevolence, controlling could imply impatience or indifference and manipulating could imply calculation (or worse).
I'm a father and I've been a high school teacher for some years. Guiding may be the ideal for a parent or a teacher, but I think that some controlling and manipulation is unavoidable in practice.
