Parent's needs
1. Encouragement to do things and be ourselves
2. Appreciation for effort shown

6. Participation in family activities in and out of the home
7. Shared responsibility for the home
8. Love and affection and trust

Are you surprised to know that our needs and those of our children are mutual? Now that you are aware of these needs which you can help to satisfy, would you be willing to do your share to make your relationships healthier and our home a better place to live in?

During our adolescent stage, our parents and us have to be patient with each other. Because our parents are human beings just like you. They are bound to commit mistakes. Having to cope with the idea that their children are growing fast is never an easy job for them just like today we also now a parents. You know guys daughters ,children's the sooner you show your parents that you are learning from your mistakes, as well as your successes, the sooner they become more patient with you. And the sooner you/we realize that your our parents too, have needs you/ we can satisfy, the sooner you/we find interaction more meaningful.

Yes guys this is true. Try to think and know about this................
