Very well written post. I am not sure whether I agree or disagree...
I am working in an area where i counsel parents and students, So i have met lots of parents...
So here is my point of view...
Sweety is (I am not taking her new avatar into consideration now) a very good mother. She loves her kids a lot and always wants the best for them as any parent would want. But is she perfect? I would say NO!
Every child has their own wishes and dreams, which sometimes might be wrong too. We say something called "Power of DONT". When you tell children, dont do something, they are definitely going to do it. So when Sweety restricts them to do something, they are definitely going to do it, especially Rocky.
Sweety has to have a different handling for Rocky and Ginny, but I feel she is following the same thing for both. Ginny is different, She is not that stubborn like Rocky. So Sweety can be little lenient with her. But now Rocky will say Sweety favours Ginny
That is when we figure out Parvarishing is not that easy.
Sweety has to find the right chord, somewhere between strict and lenient. I dont believe in something called "Cool Mom". Mother has to be a mother. When children say to parents they must not compare with other children, doesnt the same apply to children also? They should also not compare their parents with others.
What Sweety is doing now, becoming Cool to teach a lesson is not nice. It does not suit her. And what if the children accepts her to be like this? I have never seen Sweety discussing with Lucky over matters like this. Lucky is a more matured and understanding guy than she thinks him to be.
I am confused over how matters are going now, especially with this "Guddu" thing coming.
