KARACHI: Parents are a role model for their children just as children are the images of their parents. These days parents are getting irresponsible and careless so what can we expect from children. More and more parents are failing to transmit moral values and ethics to their children. Nowadays, even a child under the age of eight has a mobile or tablet in his hand. Parents do not regulate what their children are doing on their mobile or other electronic gadgets, in which type of social gatherings they are involved and the kind of activities they engage in. Because of this attitude, their children become criminals with the passage of time. It also effects their education badly. On most of our roads, you will find a number of teenagers riding motorbikes without a licence. It is not their fault; it is the fault of their parents who give them so much freedom. That is why you see so many accidents happening. What is the use of crying over their children’s injuries in such accidents.
Most parents are busy with social media outlets, uploading their statuses and sharing their posts. When will they find time to train their children and teach them the difference between right and wrong. Children want the time and attention of their parents. This improves their domestic life and leaves a positive impact on society.
