Parenting is an art on its own. An art that has rules and at the same time is not bound by any. It’s unique and specific to a family, community, and culture. With no specific guidelines, modern parents have been over-loving and parenting their kids. Parents at times think they are helping out their children. But in true reality, they are creating a liability in them.
Self-drive is what propels us to success or to achieve the things we desire in life. However, how can you develop this principle when everything is offered on a platter of gold? “Many parents have killed the self-drive of their children.

It gets worst when they have gone through school and graduated but we see the parents being the ones looking for the jobs,” Roy Okonji Coach and Author.
