Question:

Has your life been different from or similar to that of Kezia when you were a child? Has your perception about your parents changed now? Do you find any change in your parents’ behaviour vis-à-vis yours? Who has become more understanding? What steps would you like to take to build a relationship based on understanding? Write three or four paragraphs (150–200 words) discussing these issues from your own experience.

Answer:

My childhood was totally different from that of Kezia. I am the only child of my parents. My parents loved me and showed it too. My father used to take me to playground for walking, to me Zoo for seeing the birds and animals and he the market. They always gave me what I wanted. My parents behaviour was very affectionate. I used to sleep with my father. I found both my parents very loving. When I grew older, I find some changes in their behaviour. My father has become a little bit strict for me. If he finds any fault in my school work and home work, he scolds me. He advises me time to time regarding my behaviour and activities. But I think that this relationship should be based on trust, love and understanding If the child has made some mistakes and he/she admits it, the parents should not be too strict. Rather they should forgive their children and tell them not to repeat it again.
