There are two things we should give our children. One is roots and the other is wings. But when you begin to wonder where the roots are hiding and only the wings are emerging, you know you’ve made your grand entry into the impugnable world of being a parent to a seemingly pesky teenager! And this is a world so replete in its ebb & flow of new emotions, sentimentalities, bitter – sweet arguments and bewildering disorder -- that the parent is sometimes, as perplexed as the teen themselves, if not more. Most teen-parent conflicts start appearing when our little ones begin to develop a mind & will of their own..slowly but surely! And this is quite the scary proposition for us as parents because we’re constantly going between wanting them to be our babies forever and wanting them to “grow up & become responsible adults” almost overnight, while ignoring the fact that it is also us who treat them like children and expect them to behave like adults! Of course, this is just one side of the story (also the more serious of the two sides!) While for the parents it is very nearly a full time challenge to raise their half-baked muffins to be delightfully fluffy birthday cakes -- for the teens too it is that painful, often all-consuming mutation from childhood to ‘awkwardhood’ (read preadolescence) And so, while they are still trying to figure this stage out, are trying to make sense out of clamorous parents and are trying to perceive the world outside-- some really wonderful, hilarious, and heartwarming events happen that become experiential lessons for both parties. And it is out of these essential life lessons that stronger ties are forged between the two! Here is in this book, are a collection of a few such authentic accounts that encase within them- some entertainingly fun facts, in proportion to some equally profound learning that are very much relatable in the present time and age – coming from a contemporary parent-teen pair.
