After all, parents are the ones who have all the power and the money - and we are the ones who make all the rules !
This is one of the reasons why there seems to be so much more conflict between parents and children today. Yes, it was always there, but in the past , the rebellion was more muted.
Today, children have become far more articulate , and have many more opportunities to be able to express themselves and share their dissatisfaction with the world using digital tools.
Parents and children need to be able to look at life through each other's eyes , so that along with our love for our children , we also learn to become more empathetic and kinder.
The truth is that they will have to live in a world which is going to very different from ours , and we need to help them to prepare for a future which is going to be poles apart from our past I
What worked for us will not work for them, and they need to find their own answers.
I loved this book.
It’s amusingly written , and will make you laugh - and it will make you think as well , because there’s a lot of wisdom and sensible advice in its pages !
Please do read it with your teenager !
In the jet set world of today, huge self, parental, peer pressure and the pressure to excel , almost every other child becomes a victim of the unresolved, unvoiced conflicts.
Adding to this , the rigid , authoritarian, assertive, unaccomodative mind sets of many a parent, jeopardize the fruitful development of the child. This is basically the root cause of the exponentially increasing psychiatric morbidity in kids.
Through this book the mother- daughter duo has articulately tried to drive home the point that a meaningful dialogue between the parent and child is possible and once communication channel between the two is free flowing, the so called psychological burden of both will reduce.
In the capacity of a Psychiatrist, I would say that every parent and child should read this excellent book , it will surely help them to relate better.
Dr Roopa Tekchandani.
After he read the book( and he gobbled it up in a record 2 days), he came out of the room, grinning from ear to ear. He'd understood that the parent child conversations and conflicts are universal.
To me, the most important thing was that after reading the book, the child felt NOT ALONE and UNDERSTOOD. You cannot imagine what a big, big deal it is - to read a book where the author totally GETS how you feel, and the sheer realisation that one is not alone. That this happens to other children and other parents.
I loved what this book did for that little boy that day- and for us. We now laugh at the tyranny of parents together.
Daughter Swaraa dominates the thought process mother Swati gives the golden touch to her thoughts....
No doubt the writer is an indigenous child....n a born writer....
My favorite reason is 27 I still could not dig the reason y but I read it almost 3 times with lot of questions in my mind....on digital privacy should it b given monitored or intervened....
Dear mom n DD continue writing such marvellous piece for our parenting
It's almost like talking to your own teenagers and as a parent one feel thankful to the mother-daughter duo to carry out as well as present this dialogue to us.
As Dr Swati Lodha mentions in her foreword, it must have been hard for her to give a fair voice to the child side,and not allowing the parent in her to take over or even present a counter argument. The fact that the narrative has teen age freshness whilst being backed up by solid research and citations,tell us that Dr Lodha has done a commendable job.
At times you can't help but smile, for example the irony of the child worrying about the impact of social media on their parents :-).
A must read for anyone who cares to be a modern, understanding parent!
PS:- My daughter is keenly looking forward to read the book herself as soon as she is finished with her ongoing scholastic assignments.
