Walking in the Lane of Being a Child to Being a Parent

Last Updated on

We have walked the lane of being a child to being a parent. Which is one of the best journeys in life. However, like any other journey, this journey too has some difficulties in the path.

Life has been a strange path. As a child we often felt that no one understood us, time should fly soon and we would grow up to be an adult and be able to handle our problems ourselves. However, when we grow up we realise that situations are worse now. When we grow up, complications are more, and handling situations are not all easy. Everything and every decision and action involve the reaction of another person. Thus handling all these are too much for one.
 
As an individual I always felt, what if my parents would have pushed me a bit more in academics, then I would have scored better, and if they would encourage me some more for co-curricular activities then I would have some extra skill today. However, as a parent today when I try to push my daughter a bit more, I feel she may be disappointed or unhappy with the pressure.
 
Is she happy to go to the classes or is she doing it just to follow her parents’ instructions?

Many questions in the mind, various such similar dilemmas in handling childhood and parenthood.
 
Let’s share each other’s thoughts and walk together in the lane of parenting.
