Are we raising kids the right way for the changing society?Many of grew up in extended joint families and yet the current trends are towards nuclear families. We were taught to be polite, respectful and honest and yet in today's world people with such traits are trampled down by others. We were taught to share and give everyone a chance but now it's a highly competitive world with cut-throat competition.
We all grew up believing that a permanent government job is often the best option yet there are MNC and corporate jobs that are high paying and people keep changing like in a game of musical chairs. Most of us were brought up by parents who are naive, kind and good-hearted but yet the world is full of people who are smart, clever and calculating.
So friends, are we raising our kids with the right set of skills to survive in this changing world. I'm not referring to education, games or finance.
