How to maintain better relationship with parents
When parents sometimes push past boundaries, gently remind them that you love them; but that it’s something you’re quite capable of…
A relationship doesn't happen one way, it happens both ways. It is like a reflection of your emotions to others.
Parents are the one in our life, whom we did not look forward just for monetary help, but they were also there to love us unconditionally and act as our guiding stars.
However, as time starts to dwell and we become adults, adolescence starts to fade and the relationship becomes pretty sore and dull.
Every relationship is perishable until and unless there is, love involved.
Treat them like friends
Most of the parents are empathic towards their children and no one would better know about you in the world. Consider them as your friends and talk to them as a friend of yours.
Half of the problems get resolved when each one of you is willing to communicate your thoughts and emotions.
Because they know the answers to your problems, no one can understand you more than your parents in the world can.
We might not agree on several issues as our perspectives do not match, but that does not allow us to become disrespectful towards their parenting style or our treatment towards them.
If they are friendly towards you then always remember that you have to respect them and shouldn't break their trust by lying for simple things.
If you are in a relationship then try to talk good things about him or her in front of them occasionally, this can make them think that you don't hide anything from them.
Most of the children hide about their long-term relationships with parents, due to fear of rejection. Believe me; this could help when you bring up the marriage topic about your relationship with your partner.
You can avoid maximum rejections at the time of marriage proposals from your parents.
Few parents might be overprotective towards their children and that could lead to serious problems for children.
Try to understand their excessive love towards you, because at the end of the day the overprotective is part of excess love.
When parents sometimes push past those boundaries, gently remind them that you love them; but that it's something you're quite capable. However, that goes two ways.
Turning away from your parents or being disrespectful is not fair to the life they have poured into you.
Love and listen
Love them, listen to them, and create a special time for you and them alone.
Laugh with them, do little activities with them, and assist them with things they are no longer able to do for themselves. Always tell them you love them.
They are the only parents you will ever have life. Don't forget to wish and buy a small gift on occasions like mother's day and father's day.
Try to surprise them on your parent's wedding day and tell them how lucky you are to be their children. Don't feel bad or vindictive if they offend you in a few issues; if you believe in your ideology then try to convince them at most.
Try to help your mom in the kitchen and your dad washing his vehicle, even though he doesn't let you use. This might make them feel like you would care about them.
Say them how you feel
You must let them know how you feel. They will only be acting out what they learned as young people, even if, on some level, they know it's wrong. Tell them how it feels when they behave a certain way.
Because in a few instances few parents act in a stubborn way and you shouldn't hesitate how you feel in a few situations.
If you fail to remind them then things could go wrong and small issues could lead to terrible endings. A relationship is not owed.
