    Our grand parents did not have the same idea of looking after their children like what our parents are doing now. It has been changing for like years! So what is the positive or negative aspect behind this generation basis parenting changing styles?

    The one I observe today, are too many parents trying to be their children's best friend. As a result, little to no consequence for bad behavior.

      Well that's not happening in all countries. There are still many incidences where these sorts of issues are still alive!

    My parents never practically played with me when I was a young child, I also hardly remember being read books by them till I went to school. Their idea of raising kids was that kids will play and grown ups will tend to their tasks. By playing I mean, sitting down on the floor to talk to me, listen to me, engage me in any sort of dialogue, help build a block tower, none of that. They lived their lives as if I was next to them and not with them. They even smoked in front of me and never thought of it. Yet, they were not abusive parents, it's simply how other people parented at that time. They loved me, just didn't invest their time and energy in me like I am doing it today with my kids.

    Yet, I am finding it different today and I want to be a part of my kids lives. I like to be with them and listen to them. When they were younger I spent many hours on the floor playing with them and helping them learn through play. It seems natural to me to interact with them and as they are growing older they need less of me and are more independent.

    My grandparents were definitely very strict, my parents less so, I am sticking to what's important to me and am relaxed in areas that I know won't matter in a year or so. My children have a more emotionally enriching life, they know more and have seen more than I did at their age. Life is constantly changing...
