Are You More Like Your Mom Or Your Dad?

 

 

It is an important topic because parents are the most important parts of our lives and we simply want to know more about this beautiful relationship. There are many such things which we could take into consideration while we are finding how much do we resemble our parents? If we look at our current generation then you would realize that most of us are only running after materialistic things and we often forget the contribution of our parents in our lives.

They spent their entire life just to take care of ourselves and wanted us to be successful and live a happy life. There are many such people who are like this and later on in their life they regret that they didn’t took care of their parents and it is often very painful. There are many such things which we should have known before taking on these kinds of decisions. One of the main reasons why I see so much disconnect between the parents and the child is that there is just too much information that is bombarded on these children from a very young age.

They often know about certain things but may not possess the maturity to handle it. This often leads to not listening to anybody’s advice and think that they are the supreme. While I do agree that parents are not always right but the point still remains that children fall trap to this mentality and often makes the worst decisions of their life. They need to rethink their lives and have a good time with their parents. The child could learn from parents mistakes.I hope you liked my short article.
