Of great concern is the role of family. Parents are increasingly losing control with their homes. As we know, a strong and vibrant family unit is the answer to maintain stability in society and unfortunately this foundation is being jolted with terrible after-shocks which destroys the very fabric of the family and could take years to reconstruct depending on family co-operation and adherence to the rehabilitation process.
Intoxicants in various forms are and easily made available even to little kids with horrendous repercussions both to the health of the individual and the financial and social stability of the family. Parents must take the effort to re-establish and enforce their critical roles and control in the family by re-examining and enhancing their parenting skills.
The parent - child relationship should be reciprocal where obligations of both parent and the child are clearly defined, understood and agreed. Parents have an obligation towards nurturing and educating their children with good and proper morals and values.Similarly, children must uphold their obligation to respect parents in return.
