It is a fact that there is bad relationship between some parents and their children because of the mishandling of the children by the parents.
It is wise for the parents to be loving and kind towards their children and at the same time tell them strictly what they should not do. Love and kindness towards their children are the natural instincts of parents. But they should not spoil their children by showing them excessive love.
The relationship between the parents and their children is unique. Though the parents may seem to be harsh with their children just because they want their children to grow disciplined there is a strong bond of love between them. The children are entirely dependent on their parents till they begin to earn.
Even after a boy or girl gets married the relationship between the parents and their children continue as cordially as ever. But in the US and in some other countries, a youngster, even while studying, works part-time, earns and wants to be independent. After a boy or a girl gets married the parents and their married children or daughter may visit one another periodically. The relationship between the parents and their children in India is very much stronger than in some western countries and this is a laudable feature.
