If I specifically talk about Pakistan, in most of the families parents restrict their children for not to do this and that and if children asked reason they will be scold, they may thought it is the right way to put their child on right track but they are actually wrong. We are living in advance society plus scientific world where everyone wants to know the reason behind any restriction but they remain untold, as a result they must do things specially those for which they are restricted to do , but in the absence of their parents. From this point your child would follow wrong path will might be go in wrong direction they ultimately start hiding their activities from their parents because they know if they perform any event in front of parents they will definitely stop them to do which is not bad but not always, parents should involve them with their child , they should participate in their child’s activities , if he is playing game on mobile so let it be at least he is playing in front you or he would avoid playing inappropriate, same as this if your child watching any movie or drama on his Smartphone so please let it be it would better to watch any serial in front you regardless of watching alone or behind your back , if he socialize at your back he will definitely can watch something wrong which not good , isn’t it ? Lots of videos and pictures are moving in different social webs but if your child knew it that his parents are with him so he would definitely avoid such things. Some parents use too taunt on their child that he is socializing more and more, watching TV too much , playing too much , having chats or calls with friends too much but in real it’s not TOO much , mothers use too say this most this will also cause your child to hide things from parents.
If your child is studying somewhere in any institution so make him/her free to go with friends on lunch and dinners etc, allow him to go because your child is not infant he is now an adult, if you allow him than it would be best and you child will share his activities with you because he knew it that his parents will never scold him and the job of parents is to observe and guide your children politely about anything regardless of scolding him , but if you strictly restrict him not to go anywhere than you will saw he will definitely go because he wants to go with friends want outing but when he want to take permission and he know than his parents will never allow him and he will be treated with such a long lecture so to avoid such these fuss he prefer to go without informing his parents and this will also promote him to do wrong things… isn’t it ?
These are such examples, kindly watch around you and do your analysis … are you same? If you are than you should have to think about it for the better future of your child otherwise you both will suffer.
