Were traditional methods of parenting more appropriate?When I talk to my grandfather or father about the old times of their times, I often come to know very interesting things. But one thing which I always understand is that both my grandfather and grandmother gave tough punishments to my father and uncles for their mistakes in those times and beat them many times but even today my father is very decent, live in the same house with brothers and there is love and respect in all three brothers and the same respect for the grandparent. This is the same if we talk about parenting in today's era, then it is advised, do not beat the children, they do not scold them, parents are even taking counselings for how to live with the child.
But this was not all in the earlier times, parents used to give parenting to the children according to their convenience, that too without any pampering, yet why the children of that time are more sensible or virtuous and why are some of today's children deteriorating even with all the facilities? Should we still follow the ancient parenting pattern? What is your view about it?
