Well, many people think that relationships don’t need special care or nourishment to keep them going. This might be a reality some decades ago because of the taboo of society, gender discrimination or lack of awareness. But the truth is that relationship needs love, respect, liberal understanding, sharing, caring and trust towards each other to last.

In a male-dominated society, it becomes the prime responsibility of parents to provide equal upbringing to their children in order to build a great contribution to the world. Parent's focus should be to build strong Emotional Intelligence of their children for their overall development. It becomes mandatory because parents are said to be the first teachers (गुरु) of their children.

No doubt, School teachers can impart educational value in children but moral values, emotional strength, significance of relationships, social responsibilities and traditional importance can be best taught and explained by parents only. The parents need to indulge their children in all the social and cultural festivals in a way that they feel joyful and motivated. Such joyful participation will help children to understand the importance of harmony in diversity. It will also strengthen the roots of humanity in their mind and would make them better human beings.

Life is unpredictable and to ensure that children will remain equipoise all throughout their lives, parents must imbue the seeds of spirituality right from their childhood. However, to pass it to their children, parents must be well equipped with the spiritual knowledge, its relevance and essence as well.

A couple should be loving, caring, supportive and respectful towards each other and to educate and exhibit this trait to the children, parents must be living a healthy relationship with each other. Parent's healthy relationship would become a role model to children and also it will help them to learn how to live a happy and successful married life. These little yet significant teachings given by parents in an appropriate manner, would make children emotionally strong and socially responsible.

Children who would be brought up in a conducive environment would appreciate and respect all their relationships and would also understand the accountability towards social responsibilities as well. Essentially, right parenting would help the children to embrace and value feelings and space in whatever relationships they enter. It would also help them to understand as to how adversities play a vital role in bringing two people together provided they have witnessed the moral support of their parents in their respective hard times. Without any bias, they would appreciate and celebrate people's success. Children who carry moral ethics and humanity would undoubtedly inherit the same life principles to their decedents.

To summarize, the parents play a decisive role in building the foundation of any relationship and nation as a whole. They can either sow and grow the seeds of positivism, spirituality and humanity or vice-versa. Therefore, the choice is left with the parents as to what they want to conceive in the little innocent minds of their children?

Giving birth to a child is not what makes you a parent rather how they deal with their relationships, social responsibilities and adversities say all about your parenting...
