Father to son


By Uma Sudhir

A friend commented the other day on how she has remained on the backfoot from the time of dealing with her father to now dealing with her son. That she was much too scared to ask for something from dad, she thought about it a dozen times before asking.

    Generational change/gap, i feel sometimes, has been too much to handle, for some. The socio-economic reasons of large familie, to nuclear families, also count,

    I differ with this opinion ,in our culture(coastal ditricts) daughters were always close to fathers (could be an idepous complex ),father always soft towards their daughters.also other way round ,boys take help of their sisters to convey any message to father.there wont be any decision taken by family without daughers .

    @ mam
    Nice to see ur message.
    These days the kids are more matured and they back their decisions / arguments in such a way that their parents find it hard to deny / refute them.
    Do u have any experience??
    If any,kindly share with us!
    This is a common case nowadays in each and every family. The parents are not in a position to refuse their chidren,bcs,they pretty well know,how they found it difficult to demand / ask something when they’re small and now their children are certainly taking advantage!!!
    But,after reading ur message, one imp and quite debatable question struck my mind, i.e;
    OVER THE PAST FEW DECADES , ARE THE PARENTS BECOMING WEAKER / ARE THE CHILDREN BECOMING STRONGER!!!!????

    BTW,@SS,
    Why’re u confining urserlf by expressing that,it’s a “generation gap/change ??
    It would be better if we call it as an embellishment over the generations!!
    bye
