Encourage them to be warriors not followersParents love their children. This statement is an eternal truth. But what are the implications of this truth? Parents love their children so much that don't let them face their fate or fight the evils of their life on their own. When a son or daughter tries to cook something, her parents don't let her near the gas oven. They say, "We are here for you, we will take care of it". When a daughter or a son wants to buy groceries on their own, they say, "Not you little one, why bother when we are here?" Parents can't bear to see their young ones flying abroad for studies. They say, "You are to young to live alone. You are not mature enough to do so."
Have the parents thought that by over caring for their children they are ruining their lives and future? They are breaking their morality and courage. Children never grow old in the eyes of their parents. That they will never mature. They will always need someone to help them out. They will never learn to be a warrior in the battles of life. Will their parents be protecting their children all their life? If not, who will help them in their problems?
I would request all parents and parents to be, that guide your children. Motivate them to be a warrior in life and not a coward who depends on people for everything. Let them cook a little or study abroad. Help them when they are at it and always stay by their side. If you discourage them in such small issues, they will become a follower in life, but never a warrior.
