Parents and Children

All parents love their children. They take extra care of their children mostly at the cost of their personal comfort and needs. They become happy with happiness of their children and work hard to bring them up nicely.

Then why children, after growing up, do not take proper care of their old parents when they need support ? This behaviour is very common and much more acute in the developed countries like USA and Europe than in the so-called backward countries where most people still care for and serve their parents.

Is it some sort of Hypocrisy or what else, and why is this behaviour very common in those communities who are considered highly educated / developed ?

Will anybody, please, clear my mind on this by giving some solid reasons?

Should we act or become stones ?

I received an anonymous advice (rather instruction) that I should put myself right and only pray for others. I gave it a serious thought but failed to agree. If prayers were to take care of everything then why I worked hard all my life just to earn bread and clothes for me and my family, and saw all others doing the same. All creations form their communities. Even animal communities teach and learn from each other within their ilk. Discussion and guiding others or taking guidance from others comes to the share of human beings. If we do not take that responsibility, should we live like stones ?

I consider it duty of every human being to impart his / her experience to others to enable them to learn, and to learn from them through positive discussion.

Hypocrisy has crept in to majority of people and for some it has become a psychological problem. It is time that we start thinking seriously about it’s eradication and coordinate with each other to find methods for doing so.
