    Thanks cjpooja, for the response. Yes, you are right, parents guidance is a must, even when the children have grown up. At the same time becoming too much protective of their children might affect their self development.

    Thanks Ericdierker, for your answer. In my opinion, It is an important part of parenting to teach children to take decisions and be responsible for the same, lest they become too much dependent and that might even lead to lack of self confidence.
