Growing up is a big change in a child’s life because they have to get used to real-life situations and it is very unpredictable. A lot of parents are strict on their children not preparing them at all, even though in most cases it is considered out of love this could create a distant relationship with the child. This then leads to dishonesty and sneaky ways because the child doesn’t feel that type of ¨love” the parents are trying to give. Parents do mean well but sometimes it doesn’t seem that way for them.
An example of this would be in Hispanic households which is very common for a young adult to experience. They hold their child to a higher pedestal so they want them to achieve everything they did. Most of them don’t want their children to struggle the way they did as well which makes it seem as ¨tough love¨.
What do you think parents should do?
