In a lot many nations around the world, beauty is defined simply by physical appearance. If you are tall, fair complexioned and slim, you are considered really good looking. But if you are dark, short, fat and so on and so forth, you are considered quite awful in terms of looks.

These days, everyone wants to control the content we watch, the things we do, the sweet nothings we talk to our partners, the food we eat and so on and so forth. It seems as though every individual is trying to act like the moral guardian who aims to protect society from all the evils. But does this really work?

We keep reading about things being banned left right and center. There’s one school of thought which says that banning something ensures that people don’t get exposed to the wrong things in life. But the other school of thought asks “Who decides what is wrong or right?” Shouldn’t it be an individual’s perspective to decide on what is right and what is wrong? Banning instead may have the opposite affect.

Buddy parenting – Does it work?

There was a time when the sight of parents evoked fear, tension, nervousness and so on and so forth in children’s minds. But with the changing times, parents have also undergone a sea change. They have started acting more as buddies with their children empathizing with their problems, issues and difficulties rather than just acting as an overbearing and towering presence who do nothing more than scaring them. But does this so called buddy parenting work?

Most of us have always been averse to sharing the secrets of our relationships, bad habits, parties etc. with our parents. We are scared of them reprimanding us and putting up all sorts of restrictions to not let us do whatever we want. But isn’t that because we perceive parents as those humans who are always angry and looking to scare us? What if they behave like our best friends who listen to us and then advise us accordingly without jumping to any conclusions? What if they don’t judge us based on simple incidents in life? Wouldn’t it be a really delightful feeling?

“Daddy, I really love those toys which my friends play with. Can we please buy them as well? I have always seen them buying from this store.”

Katie, Brad’s daughter was a sweet little kid all of 4 years who had brought happiness and joy to their family after years of trying for a child. Her happiness and joy was all that mattered for her parents.

While he always ensured that he inculcated the right values and ideals and made her learn the difference between right and wrong at an early age, fulfilling all her wishes was his most important priority.

Why do we love to argue?

Who doesn’t love to argue? (Me included :)) Whether its arguing needlessly or arguing to defend your point, arguments are the essence of any discussion. There are some who just keep arguing all the time without any rhyme or reason. They need a reason to just begin themselves. And when they do, they never stop. They just keep arguing for the sake of arguing. While there are others who prefer to avoid arguments outright. Whenever any sort of discussion reaches such a situation, these people tend to leave it lest it may reach a level where verbal and physical fights may result. But why do we argue at all?

All of us have a set of beliefs, a set of values, principles, understanding of certain theories etc. If we observe that a particular thing is out of place or not happening according to our beliefs, values, culture etc. we tend to ask questions. And when it doesn’t match with the other party, arguments begin. When we have a set thinking and believe in certain probable truths, we never accept the other party’s comments or inputs which maybe different from ours. We tend to believe that our thinking is the universal truth. A lot of it has to do with the refusal to change preconceived notions. And then we go all out to show that we are RIGHT!
