Why I Hate “The 10 Things List” on Parenting

  1. Kalpana, first of all, I want to hug you!
    All that you have written, I completely agree with it, a 100%! SOme time back, I heard a discourse given by a spiritual speaker. he was talking about how to lead your life when the going gets tough, etc.And, the first thought that came to my mind was, has he gone through what I have? How does he know what it is to handle what I am dealing with? It is so easy giving gyaan sitting in the comforts of your throne, without having gone through what others have!

    All those articles about “How to be a good parent”, uff, I am not a parent, but, these articles just get on my nerves. Every parent is a good parent, dealing with his or her kids the way they deem fit, for they know their kids best. They know what they are doing and how to get things done. WHo is anybody to teach how it is “supposed” to be done? Do we come into this world with a “How to” book? It is our experiences, our battles and our mistakes, failures and successes that teach us how to handle our life. So, why not leave it to us alone?

    Ah, I think we ought to meet some day, Kalpana. We sure have a lot to talk about! 🙂
    Glad to have connected!

    1. Such beautiful words Shilpa… I know right…how can anyone judge without walking in someone else’s shoes? I am so touched by your words and I really think we should meet too…How lovely it would be…I am so glad we connected. Can’t believe we could make such meaningful connections in the virtual world too. Loads of love and a big bear hug to you! Thank you for your kind words…Really hoping we could meet someday…
