Our writer Amrita Mallik has expressed some real true facts about why our elders insisted us on following some basic rules about eating and drinking. These are definitely in today’s parenting. She says...
Our elders always set some rules for eating and drinking when we were kids. Those rules had become habits in those days. But as a part of growing up and due to our busy lifestyle of take away food, on the way food, street food etc etc we have shed those habits. They need to be remembered again and adequately inculcated in our children for their healthy outcome.
In those days the elders didn't back up their rules with science or logic. They used their stern demanding voices which were unarguably obeyed. But in today's digital age, kids are too smart to accept rules, and obey them , so they need to be logically explained as they grow up and start studying science as a subject in the school.
So our grandparents were way more intelligent and caring than us, as they taught us the proper way to do the smallest and most natural activities of life in the correct way.
