We live in trying times. Our children are exposed to concepts and beliefs much earlier than we did. We see music videos of children romancing each other in the school premises. My son doesn’t miss the popular serial that depicts love stories of school-going children. The environment at his school is no different, almost everyday, he comes home with stories of kids hooking up and then breaking up unceremoniously. He is growing…faster than ever…and he knows…everything – EVERYTHING.
I had to stay strong to my commitment of being his best friend and guide him in the right manner. Here is how I did it…
