Is it really a sacrifice?The thought is mainly revolving parents but comments are welcome from all. I have seen many parents counting what they have done for their kids and what they have sacrificed to give a better life to their kids. Do you think whatever parents do is a sacrifice? Being a parent, my intension is not to disrespect the parenting but at the same time, I also want to save the children from the burden they are getting after knowing the list of sacrifices their parents have done in their upbringing. Parents do things for their kids for the sake of their own happiness and it makes them feel great if they are able to provide something extraordinary to their kids. Then why make them feel the guilt of what they have not done! I know, many of the parents may not agree with my thoughts, but believe me, many times the kids become very much sensitive about their success and career and even a small failure hit them very hard. It is because, now after knowing the great sacrifices of their parents, they want to return it by creating big success stories and after doing handwork, they cannot accept failure.
I again emphasize here that my intention is not to hurt the parenthood but to save the growing children's emotions and would like to have your frank views on the same.
