Can you please help me figure out a deeper meaning for "society will judge people and it will affect their future"

for ex:
"sometimes the most valuable lessons are learned by breaking the rules"

Childhood is the time to break rules and learn valuable lessons because consequences are still innocent

  1. To whom does "their" refer?

    If you think it refers to "people," then there's one set of meanings.

    But if you think it refers to "society," there's a whole slew of different possibilities.

    What do you think?
