Parental Restriction- Is it an impediment to the challenges of the new generation?
You are your parent’s creation. They have brought you into this world and have strived to keep you healthy. They love you, and they love you a lot. They will only do what they think is good for you. They would never try to set an impediment in their kid’s path. These restrictions are an act of love.
When man first appeared on Earth, did he know how to build a computer or cook a Biryani? He just existed with little intelligence. When he had a son, he told his son which fruits are to be eaten and how tools are to be handled. Obviously, with do’s come don’ts. He told his son which fruits he should not eat and at the same time also stopped him from climbing into animals’ mouths. Basically he stopped him from doing what was dangerous, that is he put restrictions on his son. From this we derive that restrictions are a form of passing valuable information from one generation to another. If restrictions are not in order, curiosity will kill the cat, and kids will go and do stupid things.
In today’s world, there are many ways of going wrong and ruining one’s future, such as alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, murder, robbery and a countless other things. Restrictions are not impediments but they are ramps to fly over the impediments.
Parents do what they think is the best for their kids. But they are not God. Sometimes, the restrictions may seem to be a problem. But in such cases we should walk up to our parents and say, “we need to talk.” Talk logically with them; ask them the reasons behind their restrictions. Live a good life by obeying your parents. Remember, if mankind has to progress, it will only happen by application of old experienced knowledge and discovery of new knowledge, together. When both synchronize, it can blossom into a beautiful future.
