Is there a generation gap between youngsters with their parents?
There is always a generation gap between parents and their children, which is very natural. But to put it aside and judge each situation according to its merit and act accordingly strengthen our relationships and our bonds. That understanding, flexibility and respect for each others’ space should come from both sides. Ego and stubbornness spoils the relationship. No one should take anyone for granted- neither the elder nor the youngster.

If you are a mom or single, what is the right way to bring up your child?
The right way to bring up your child is to face life together with your child. Nothing should be hidden from the child and he should be treated like a partner in the tough game called life. That creates a solid bond between parents and children, especially with single parents. You will be amazed to know that the IQ of a child is same as that of an adult. They understand as compassionately and deeply as an adult. So they must be respected and loved for what they are if we want to command the same respect and love. Discuss life and its complexity with your child, you will be thrilled at their understanding and the amazingly simple ways they will suggest to overcome complexities.
