Families are the building blocks of society, and parenting is a blessed privilege but also a serious responsibility. In today’s world which is consumer-oriented, lawless and sexually permissive, parenting has become a challenge. Too much exposure to audio and visual media from an early age coupled with ineffective parenting has made children selfish and self-indulgent, always seeking instant gratification.
They are likely to have impulsive behavior and are easily frustrated.
The family is a training ground for preparing children to take their place in society as responsible adults. As a result, parents need to periodically assess their styles of functioning. They must have a progressive outlook while adhering to old-world values.
