My Thoughts

“Nothing stays forever”, we have come across this phrase a thousand times. Your family, parents, relatives, friends, pets, good and bad phrases in your life everything keeps on changing. Today you are happy about something, may be the next moment will shock you to your core and change your life completely. This is how life goes on?

Broken Families

Many of us have a great life and an awesome family. We enjoy with our family, share our happy and sorrows together. Stand-up for each other in times of turbulence. But they are many unfortunate ones in the groups too.

There are some families that may look happy together, but when you go closer you can see the loneliness and distance between them. Many incomplete families like Parent with no kids, kids with no parents, Single parents, divorcee parents. No one can imagine the emotional impact that it has on everyone.

Teenagers

When we talk about teens, the first thing that comes in our minds is “complicated”. Teens and teenage life is filled with complications. In this age, kids are confused about everything like studies, career, love, friendship, siblings and many other things in their life. Parents are the one subject that they never understand. The same thing goes around with Parents too, who doesn’t know why their kids lash out ?

Things become more complicated, when they have divorced Parent. You can’t blame the kids, sometimes things get complicated between the adult, which is difficult for the kids to understand.

But who is to blame for this? If your kids are angry and hates you for this; who’s responsible for it?

Parents

As a Parent we try everything possible for their kids. They work hard, so that their kids would have better life and future. This is not possible with everyone. Sometimes, things get out of hand, relationship breaks, reason would be many. We humans complicate things so much, that we end up hurting people that we love and we start hating each other. “We are humans, we make mistakes, but we forgive and move on”. Sometimes the best way to keep people together is to go away. Parents try to take the best decision, for their kids. They get separated; so that their kids don’t have to see their parents fight constantly.

But still the question remains, what impact or trauma will it causes in the minds of a kids?
