Dear Parents of today's generation.
Parenting is not just taking care of kids, its more of an art, an art only a few parents can master, that too only when they get close to their kids. You will be called a successful parent when you understand the needs of your kids and respond to it in a way your kid is totally satisfied with it; But, all I see these days is parents who like to enforce a whole lot of rules and restrictions on their kids to see them live a life like they want them to live. Also, there are some parents who see kids as future investments and treat them with everything they want just so that they take care of them when they grow old. Guys, Seriously, what's wrong with you ?? Did your parents give birth to you so that you can pay them back when they get old ? I mean where did this idea even come from ? I also don't understand why do you still insist on using the same old parenting tactics your parents used on you ?
I know I have been a little harsh above.. But, I also know how difficult it is to be parents amongst a busy daily schedule where the cost of living is high and both parents (rather the couple) have to work to live a comfortable life. I also know on one side there is a family pressure to bear kids which seem to be grandparent's only wish, but then finding a proper balance between work, bearing kids and raising them is really difficult. This is also the main reason why young couples like you usually resolve to have either one kid or a maximum of two and then let grand parents take care of the child till he/she grown just cause you wanna earn belly fully ?
