What it means:
All of us must have had either some problem or the other with our own affectionate family members. It might have been verbal or any cold feeling between two people on any basis. Even though we do not want it to happen, things crop up over the course of time and cause unimaginable effects. These disturb our daily routine and cause a change of character of a student in the negative direction. Hence, keeping a smooth relationship with each and every family member is an essential component for every student who stays far away from home, in order to pay perfect concentration to his/her studies.
Causes and symptoms:
Just like all other traits of a child such as character, attitude, behavior, etc. , the extent to which one loves his/her family members is primarily decided at a young age. Many children get obsessed with the harsh background of seeing their parents quarrelling. Things like these act as a seed and later makes them behave indifferently to others around them.
Another root cause of these problems is the inattention shown towards the children by parents. A parent who does not recognize a drawing made by his/her 7 year old child has much to repent in his/her child’s later ages.
A major reason for the indifference in the parent-child relationship is ‘mistrust’. Questions like “Will you fare well in your exams or should I look for another college?” totally de-moralize the students and introduce an iron curtain between the parents and children.
Problems such as these have been encountered by probably every generation of students who have lived away from their parents. Hence, there is nothing to worry as it has been analyzed and has become resolvable. To solve it, initiatives have to be taken from both sides-the parents as well as the children.
Parents should pay more attention to the progress of their children and stop caring about them too much since it is time for them to start learning to live. A proper discussion over the subject is more than enough to end any cold war that takes place between parents and children.
Students should also talk regularly to parents about their problems, progress and ask suggestions. This makes parents feel more responsible and makes them guide them like never before.
And nothing is better than a regular outing with each other on holidays. It gives the feeling of still being so close.
