Who is responsible for bad behaviour of childI live in a metro city where expenses are so high that both husband and wife have to work to meet the high cost of living. Now as both the parents are working and when they extend their family they are unable to give up their job or call their parents to live with them as they prefer staying in nuclear format of family. Now when the mother decides to join her job back after her maternity leave she takes her child to the daycare in her company or leave them at any other daycare in nearby locality.
Now the child who grows up staying away from their parents from a young age of few months becomes irritated and emotionally drained. Parents in order to make up for the same start to give everything possible to the child in order to console him/her without even thinking that whether it is right or wrong. Since each and every demand of child is met by parents throughout the young age on some pretext or other just to satisfy their own guilt of keeping the child away from them due to their jobs makes the child stubborn and more demanding.
As the child grows up he/she starts to become more and more demanding and spoilt who doesn't listen to the parents at all.
Now who is responsible for the upbringing of child, is it the parents or is it their job preference or is it their preference of nuclear family or is it the ever increasing cost of living causing both parents to work.
The whole writeup is actually based on a real life incident of my friend who fails to understand why his daughter is so stubborn and ill mannered. For him it is ok if she behaves this way, she will catch up later in life is what he believes.
Now, since I have also become a father so I am very concerned about what to do to save my child from being spoilt and give her a safe environment for all round growth and good manners.
