Letting Go…


One of the emotionally challenges for Mothers and Fathers is to let go of their close monitoring and deep attachment of their children as they grow slowly into young adults. The children  in their late teens are also challenged to let go of their dependency of their parents as they looking for a way of being accepted as an adult in the society. This primarily means they are looking at taking their own decisions, do not want obvious advice, do not expect any forced thinking from their parents. This leads to a kind of emotional blackmail kind from both sides which can be disturbing. It is critical that parents move from a protector role to a discussion partner role and the children move from a dependent role to an independent role for both to move on in life.
