Evangelist Billy Graham.Dining together each night my father- in -law converses with us on how he was born and brought up by his parents long back. having his mother alive all hail and hearty, an old lady of 100 makes him recall his childhood each time he sees her. he flips back on how his father gave him valuable advices on lessons of life, and continues to walks on the principals that his father has imbibed on him as a young boy and he carries a strong impression of his fathers teachings, he expects that the coming generation should live a life as they then lived. childhood in itself is a sweet memory for each one of us, we all have our own bunch of memories to share. childhood is even the most correct time to mould a raw person into a fine personality. living in the 21st century world, things have seemed to be changing a lot. parenting, raising children has become a far more different aspect. since parenting is also an ethical and moral issue, perspective may vary according to the culture and civilization for different people belonging to different set ups. as health personals we too come across many cases that arise merely due to maladjustments or psychological impairments that many a times lead to serious psychiatric problems. the third important thing is that parenting as a complete process and according to the changing time parenting is not the same as it used to be in the past. in the previous years we have been undergoing tremendous technological advancement which in terms is a boon for us. our lifestyles have heavily changed, we no more live in an joined family, we all are working parents and our outlook for a settled life has changed the world around us. we all live in the a world that is modernly civilized. leaving our civilization far behind. raising kids in this advanced world is a challenge indeed. since technology has brought curses as well as boons to our lives. we need to balance them both. things may be difficult but not impossible.
