Sometimes, it’s us parents to blame when our kids will go wayward. If we expect too much from our children and the latter will not come up to our expectation, our children will resort to other ways instead of coming to us and admit their inadequacies. In moments like these, our children need our understanding and presence as a friend more instead of being a parent. And if we always insist our desire to our children or even decide for them, time will come that we will be causing more harm instead of helping. We should not equate love with a luxurious life in our absence. And in the minds of young children, they will remember our faces and familiar voices during frequent encounters more instead of the gifts we have given.
