What To Do When Boys Stop Listening To Parent Before 18?
Last week I got a chance to stay with my friend for couple of hours. There, one thing that I noticed was her son's misbehavior. On everything her son would say 'NO'. Then I realized that there is some psychological problem with him that he is not listening to his parent. Both parent got embarrassed in front of me, but I told them that it's not a problem as boys are like this. But in my heart I was saying what a bad boy he is! His mother is taking so much care of him and look at him, he is showing his attitude.
I asked a couple of questions from my friend and got to know that she was fulfilling all his desires and demands, which is wrong. In my opinion that child should have respected his parent more than anyone on earth as from the very beginning they used to fulfill all his desires and demands.
For studies also they had to force him and make him realize that if he will waste his precious time, it will never come back.. He can perform all the extra-curricular activities in his leisure time.
Now the question is what one should do?
In my opinion, his parent should pull his reins and they should keep an eye on his activities, that is:
- With whom does he go?
- Where does he go?
- Which type of boys are his friends?
- With whom does he spend most of his time?
- What are their activities?
- They should not indulge themselves in any type of dangerous activities.
After observing him for a month or so, his parent should make him realize that today they are alive, God forbid if tomorrow he has to live alone, none of his so called friends would come to help him in any way. Today he spends money on them and that is why they are his friends, tomorrow when he isn't left with any, they will abandon him or if he wants to borrow money from his friends, they will make some sort of an excuse.
In a nutshell, parents should not be very lenient with their children and should keep an eye on their activities. Parent are treasure for children, neither they should treat them as garbage nor humiliate them rather they should respect them with love and care.
