Let’s admit it, Indian parents are very caring and understanding about a lot of stuff, however, there are certain things they will never come to terms with unless they are well exposed to the issues relating to the current generation. Let’s take a look at some of them:
While this may seem like a daunting task to us as well, our parents cannot comprehend why anyone would want to quit a job they just joined or are well settled in. Indian parents always want the future of their children to be secure, hence a change of job can get them really worried.
Not being in touch with certain “relatives”
Indian parents always want their children to be courteous to relatives irrespective of whether we like them or not. In a country which practices Atithi Devo Bhava meaning ‘Guest is equivalent to God’, can we really expect to do the bare minimum?
Self-splurging is important
Our parents will never understand why we bought that pair of Zara shoes or a Hidesign handbag. As a generation which stands for self love, a little bit of splurging is but obviously a natural thing. Therefore, the next time you feel bad for splurging, just remember that it’s okay to splurge once in a while, but don’t make it a habit.
Discussing mental health
Indians perceive poor mental health as something to be ashamed of. However, the recent wave of awareness has enlightened many Indian parents for the better. While most of them might still not take it positively, the responsibility lies on our shoulders to make them aware about this issue.
It’s okay to marry a little late…. or not marry at all
This is by far the toughest one to crack. The first priority of every Indian parent after their children have grown is to find a perfect match and get them married. Indians across the world face this issue no matter how open their parents are. However, one should only get married as and when they feel like. If you feel like it’s not your cup of tea, sit and talk to your parents and don’t give in unless you’re absolutely sure!
