It is easy to build a good relationship with parents. If one fails to do so, he/she will likely to fail in other relationships. Environmental changes and technological advancements have created a gap in this relationship. In previous times, parents used conventional methods, dictatorial style in dealing with children. They need to modify and adjust with changing times.Parents need to know their children better. They ought to explain things to children and involve dialogue and decision making. Such dialogue should be extensive. Its first part explains the motives and reasoning, whereas the second part should be decisive.
Listening is a key element in dialogue. Parents should also ask key questions to clarify their point of view. Allow children to ask questions as well. Respecting their opinions is important. Parents lose their writ by not sticking to their word. They should do what they say and say what they’ll do. Use the green, yellow, and red stands wisely to re-establish the writ.Children get anxious when they watch their parents fighting. This can result in separation anxiety in them. Parents should be very careful and assure a peaceful relationship to children. At difficult times, do the right thing and be content.
In this video Dr Sadaqat Ali talks about the importance of parents and children relationship. At times parents want to deal with their child’s issues the same way they were dealt by their parents. Parents should understand that times have changed and those methods are no longer workable in today’s environment. They should learn new skills to deal with their children in better ways. In this regard they should know about their child’s feelings and needs because mostly parents don’t know the real issue and they do things with their own perspective. This is when things start moving in wrong direction. Parents should learn to listen to their children. Rather than lecturing ask your child a question which is more effective. Parents should maintain respect in the eyes of their children. Usually whatever parents say, it falls in three categories red, yellow and green stands. Mostly children agree with green and yellow stands but they disagree with the red ones. This is where the parents get stuck and that is when the child disrespects their parent’s value. Parents should also know that their conflicts and arguments affect their child so they have to settle their issues in a positive way.
