i have a particular question in mind and it is to do with the role of parenting against watching tele in the evening!!!
yes it sounds a silly question but i know a lot of asian parents particualrly from my background (pakistani) make sure they have the evening to watch the local pakistani/indian frama episode number infinity and the children young and old have just come back from work or school to find this is the situation. Hence a family evening usually consists of eating dinner and no real family interaction with the children also being uninterested in the dramas due to a culture gap.
Does anyone else experience this at ll in their own homes?
my question is say the son or child is ollder 18/19 and this really has occured through his whole life, islamically are the parents doing any wrong, should the child speak up and say you know why dont we just turn off the tele and do something else, together, as a family! or should he/she stay quiet as to not to make your parents angry at all or cause them to come out of their comfort zone.
i find pakistani parents can be most disconnected from their children at times and i wish that wasnt the case.
any help ideas!!?!
