The Hard Way (part One)

Parenting is one of the most challenging tasks known; it doesn't just take the time and resources of the parent but changes everything about their lives. Every stage of a child's development must be taken with full responsibility; if any stage is missed or not attended to appropriately, it may lead to lifetime regret for the parent. Mother has an additional task in this respect; she has enormous work to do in preparing a child to become an independent and responsible adult in the future.

Adolescents and teens are one of the major concerns, especially in our society; during this age, they need constant counseling, guidance, monitoring, and caring. Failure to teach them what is appropriate, the society will, and when this happens, they may fall victim to many awful things.

This was the case with Tina, and where her parent got it all wrong. Tina was the only girl of her four children. She was born into a few African homes we have to date that still believe the only method to train, correct, and make a child behave uprightly is the use of rods, harsh words, and being strict with them. The old parenting method is still widely used in some homes till now, They are assumed to be very effective, but as the world evolved, certain deficits are said to be associated with this method. Hence modern parenting is advised. Tina's parents are one of those few who believe modern parenting is a modified and approved way of bad parenthood, which brought about rearing indecent and uncultured young minds.  

Tina found herself being subjected to this kind of treatment; she could not discuss issues with her parents for fear of being judged, mistakes are not allowed, and all instructions must be obeyed. Instead of finding comfort at home, she did in school, in the hard of friends who taught and opened her eyes to all manner of horrible fads. Now, Tina Is a child her parents never wanted her to be. Do you still believe modern parenting is an indecent way of rearing children? HARD WAY
