Parents play an important role in the development of children. Parents are responsible for their children. The family unit will fail if our children are not properly raised. Parents should keep an eye on their children. Parents should ask about the source of expensive gifts. If they come in with a cell phone that is expensive, parents should ask for an explanation. Parents should visit educational institutions periodically and ask about their children’s behavior. It is important to note any unauthorised absences from classes or tuition centres. The importance of upbringing in the development of character must be stressed. Children who are left to their own devices will do things that no parent would ever approve. Freedom is good but unrestrained freedom is bad. Modernity is not an excuse for parents to forget their responsibilities. Parents can either allow or not permit others to pollute the minds of their children. Modern parents are the least concerned about their children, and they leave it all to teachers. This is a very serious problem that requires introspection. Our youth have become more morally degenerate over the years. Social ills such as drug addiction, alcoholicism and prostitution are on the rise. In a Muslim-dominated society, this should never happen. To fight this threat, we all need to be awake. This job cannot be left to just the clergy and teachers. Parents have a major role to play. Modern technology, experts believe has caused what they term as `pre-mature maturity’. The parents must play a key role in using technology properly. Many sociologists believe that moral education is desperately needed in our school curriculum. Early intervention by parents can prevent negative behaviour changes in youth. We as parents need to watch out for any delinquent behaviors in our kids. Our materialistic tendencies can have a negative impact on our children’s upbringing. We don’t bother to inculcate civic and moral values in them. Over a period of time such children, when left unattended, tend to develop violent behaviour when they don’t get what they desire. Parents, society, teachers, and clergy must all work together to prevent our children from going astray.
