Children are born free but they need to learn how to handle their freedom, how to be responsible for their own emotions, behaviours, values, health, relationships and academics.
Parents love is full of devotion, care and compassion and they sacrifice their desires and dreams to make their children safe and secure.
Irrespective of this there is a continuous conflict between the parent and the child.The conflict begins right from the child’s existence in their mother’s womb. The parent is worried about the safety and survival of the child while the latter is free of emotion and care. As the child enters the world, the parent is constantly worried about the safety of the child and wants to protect from any danger whereas the child wants to break free and explore the world at their own pace using its freedom.
The two often end up pulling each other in opposite directions. They don’t understand each other and end up falling out. Parents often nag, shout and sometimes even beat their children up thus creating voids or fears in their personalities. This ruin the precious relationship of a parent and the child. The entire blame for this is put on the parents and hence it is correctly said:
PARENTS ARE BLAMED NOT TRAINED
In this basic conflict of life lies the need for parenting. Ask yourself one fundamental question: “Am I ready tochange myself, learn new techniquesand follow the path of having an amazing relationship with my child?
