How Close Are You To Your Parents?



Parents in my opinion are your best friends. Most of the time, they never have ill motives regarding their child. If there is anything called true love then your parents are the ones who feel it for you. Their love for you is extremely pure and they never will manipulate you for their own profits. While it is also true that parents sometimes get overcautious and don’t let their child face the difficulties of life.

The unintended consequence of this type of parenting is that they are ill-prepared for the real world. If your parents are overprotective then you will always hold a very idealistic view of life and it may hurt you later on in your life.

These idealistic views are also reinforced by cartoons and movies as well. It further strengthens the perception that you will have a perfect life. I don’t really know what life really is but one thing that I do know is that it is far from perfect. It would rarely turn out as you think. You will have moments of happiness, sadness, and surprise and you never which one is gonna come next. If your parents let you see the world for yourself while guiding you when you need them then you will lead a very fruitful time.

People don’t get it and they have a very hard time understanding this fact. Most of the time they just don’t want to listen to other people and in turn leave their children in a dire state. In these simple ways, you can help them and you can show your love for them. And God said, Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.

Play the quiz to know how close are you to your parents while do note that no quiz under the Sun could tell how close are you to your parents. Hence play it only for fun.

“All parents damage their children. It cannot be helped. Youth, like pristine glass, absorbs the prints of its handlers. Some parents smudge, others crack, a few shatter childhoods completely into jagged little pieces, beyond repair.”
― Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven

“The Voice

There is a voice inside of you
That whispers all day long,
“I feel this is right for me,
I know that this is wrong.”
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
Or wise man can decide
What’s right for you–just listen to
The voice that speaks inside.”
― Shel Silverstein

“When a child first catches adults out — when it first walks into his grave little head that adults do not always have divine intelligence, that their judgments are not always wise, their thinking true, their sentences just — his world falls into panic desolation. The gods are fallen and all safety gone. And there is one sure thing about the fall of gods: they do not fall a little; they crash and shatter or sink deeply into green muck. It is a tedious job to build them up again; they never quite shine. And the child’s world is never quite whole again. It is an aching kind of growing.”
― John Steinbeck, East of Eden

“Through the blur, I wondered if I was alone or if other parents felt the same way I did – that everything involving our children was painful in some way. The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love or pride, were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and yes, in pain. The human heart was not designed to beat outside the human body and yet, each child represented just that – a parent’s heart bared, beating forever outside its chest.”
― Debra Ginsberg

“You know all that sympathy that you feel for an abused child who suffers without a good mom or dad to love and care for them? Well, they don’t stay children forever. No one magically becomes an adult the day they turn eighteen. Some people grow up sooner, many grow up later. Some never really do. But just remember that some people in this world are older versions of those same kids we cry for.”
― Ashly Lorenzana
