Why should one not offer advice without asking for it?It is an age old saying that one should not offer advice to anybody without asking for it. However, there has to certain exceptions like the parents offering advice to their children, the teachers offering advice to the students or the boss offering advice to the employees.
I have practically observed that offering advice to a couple regarding value addition in their children results in worst kind of reaction. No parents seem to be ever willing to listen to criticism of their children's behavior irrespective of the ground realities. They virtually behave like Dhritrashtra- Gandhari in preferring to not to hear anything adverse against their children.
What has been your observations in this regard? Why should one not offer advice without asking for it?
