Do you think parents/guardians are always right?It is a norm to consider that parents/guardians or to say the elders are always right. Their viewpoints on any matter are regarded as authentic which leave no scope for contradiction. Parents cannot be wrong, is a very dubious kind of opinion according to me.
If that is so then I have many 'whys' which remain unanswered. Such as:
1. Why some parents sell their children?
2. Why does a number of parents force their daughter to prostitution?
3. A large number of daughters in law are tortured for dowry, why so?
4. Within many families, there is a clash of ego, prestige and, authority among the two generations. Is it because of the younger generation or the upper generation is not ready to give up all the rights?
I feel if the upper generation becomes a little more tolerant, quite adjustable, ready to listen to the opinions of the young ones and finally come to a conclusion after having a healthy discussion with one and all can make the family life peaceful. Such is the matured way of dealing with the family issues to maintain the sanctity of a family.
Sadly speaking, the seniors very rarely show such attitude rather their ego, temper and demeaning attitude ruin the relationship within the members of the family. It is also true that despite all the love, care and adjustment showed by the parents, the young ones break the stability of their family and start an independent life.
Still, I would say an extra effort from the elders can stop a family from getting fragmented. Parents and elders need to self-scrutinize themselves because seniority in age does not mean that they are always right.
