Talking about relationship with parents, Dr Sadaqat Ali indicates that easiest of all relationships to maintain is with parents. Basically the main reason behind the gap between parent and child is that parents want to administer their children the same way as they were administered by their parents. Change has become a main agent these days and parents still follow obsolete methods and hence face difficulties. In order to improve relationship parents have to learn new techniques of parenting by following “know system” which means to listen and interact with your children accordingly. Negotiate with your child in detail and ultimately the solution needs to be a win – win.  There are three levels of stands, which mean the inclination to listen to what parents say. Green stands are the one which children usually follow.

In Yellow stands, children listen to but they show resistance or mood.  Lastly comes red stand, which includes what is being told is not followed.  Usually parents are always in mode of taking red stands which eventually than make even the yellow and green stands turn into red, resulting in weaken writ established by parents. Parents should start with green stands while helping the children develop an attitude of saying yes further leading to taking yellow stand and then red stands eventually.  Lastly Dr Sadaqat highlights the importance of negotiating skills.
