New Delhi, July 26, 2018: Indian parents should teach their kids instead of Sanskars. That’s the thing about Indian parents, instead of teaching us about things that matter they us keep feeding us Sanskars that do not take us anywhere in life. Here are the things of some practical knowledge that parents can impart on their children to make their life better according to reports published in m.dailyhunt.in

Teach them how to file taxes :

Parents never care to teach us to get our taxes right. No wonder so many of us end up hiring CAs to do such a simple task.

Teaching boys to cook :

Indian parents believe that kitchen is a place strictly for woman. Cooking is a very important life skill and both girls and boys should know know it.

Educating them about sex :

Kids learn about sex from from their friends and by watching porn. This is not doing them any good because porn teaches them nothing about consent, contraceptive and other things about sex.

Explaining them the concept of savings and investment :

Parents should tell their kids the importance of savings and investment from early age. Getting them piggy bag is not enough.

Instead of telling your kids that people who drink and smoke are bad , tell them it’s bad for health :

Have open discussion about such things. Tell your kids how smoking and drinking harm the body.

Instead of telling your daughter not to wear short skirts and go out in dark, teach them self defence tricks :

This is a life saving skill that women should know. Parents should make sure that their daughters learn self defence from early age.

Teaching them how important assertiveness is even if it means ‘answering back’ to elders:

Parents should tell their kids what is wrong is wrong. They should be taught how to form opinion even if it’s going against someone who is elder to them.

Saying no to gender stereotyping :

‘Girls belong to dollhouses and boys belong to playground. Boys are strong and they never cry’. It’s 2018 and things like this should become passe.
