Many of my friends have a common problem; their parents don’t understand them. The parents don’t try to see a matter from their (my friends’) perspective. They try to use authority and if that does not work...they apply the dangerous weapon of emotional blackmailing. In the process the whole scenario goes from bad to worse.
My say is that the entire problem arises due to our ignorance and lack of tact.
The solution to this problem is very simple. Expectations arise from previous results. A mother won’t expect her child to bring 95% in the next exams if he failed in the last standard. The same strategy applies. Here are a few examples...after this life becomes smooth and sweet making everybody happy.
1. Find out what kind of a girl your parents dislike most. Now spread a rumor that reaches the ears of your parents that you are deeply in relation with that kind of a girl. After that your parents will be happy with any other girl you marry.
2. Use a friend to let your parents know that you have turned alcoholic. They will definitely call you. Let your parents know that you have already become dependent on the liquid and then promise that you will try your best to come out of that. Couple of months later let your parents know that you have ALMOST quit. After that your parents will be very happy to know that you seldom booze.
3. Ask for money from your parents even though you are earning. Say that your earning is too less for the required expenditures. Lots of suggestions will come from their side. After a couple of months let them know that you have cut your expenses and then you can send some money home. Your parents will be more than happy.
Words of wisdom : You can only make a difference to the entire situation. There is no limit of expectation,you need to set the limit.
