In our work as educators, we have had plenty of opportunities to interact with young people and it is indispensable that parents and educators take time to listen to what children between the age group of 11-15 in India are saying today. They do appreciate their parents and elders even if they do not express it always. Here are some of their statements:
- Thank you for supporting us through bad times and good times.
- Mom and dad, you are gods for us.
- Parents should know how to say no to their children and thanks for taking care of all our needs; we love you.
- Thank you for guiding us in each and every way and for your encouragement.
