Summary/Abstract: The most endangered social group who are vulnerable to the adverse effects of civilizational changes are youth, a fertile ground for manipulation and the suggestive creation of fashion and trends. In this context, the author reflects on the process of education and formation of the young generation. He does this by referring to certain paradigms of formation, which seem at the present time neglected, forgotten or marginalized because they are uncomfortable. The author first, however, clarifies concepts such as paradigm and formation. Then the nine neglected formative paradigms of a teenager are discussed. These are: the teleological paradigm, the paradigm of limited trust, the paradigm of controlled self-reliance, the paradigm of individual approach, the detoxification paradigm, the paradigm of upbringing by presence, the de-stereotyping paradigm, the ecological paradigm and the spiritual paradigm.
