The relationship between child and parents’ requires balance and efforts. Parents must be very understanding and tolerant. Losing your temper is not likely to help the cause. The times, we are living in surely give lots of stress moments but this reason alone will never justify the parents’ wrong approach towards the kids. Stress has become a part of our lives. Even parents are in stress because of family, job or any other reason then so are kids. Kids are always expected to perform well in academics and at the same time they need to excel in extra-curricular activities. Add to these, the curse of being compared with every other child and you have a problem in hand.
Above mentioned points do indicate the need of fun and relaxation in parent-child relationship. A little effort ever now and then and parents are most likely to have a wonderful experience at home. Start with leaving your stress at the doorsteps of your house. Don’t bring your problems in your living room. Can you remember those days when just a look at your child’s face and you used to forget all the worries of the world? Yes, things are still the same and nothing really has changed.
