As the article rightly points out it can be tricky and a little uncomfortable for parents as they can have their own set of fears and concerns about what might happen and it\'s definitely worth reaching out for help in that case. In the Indian context talking about relationships before marriage hasn\'t been normalized yet but hopefully, more awareness is built around this topic in a way that leads to more open conversations.
Veey interesting read. I also feel like although this is important, helping parents understand WHY its important to communicate this to their children is very essential since that appears to be the first step. Even open minded parents tend to assume that their kids will automatically learn these concepts whereas it may not be so in reality.
Open Communication is definitely a must wherein parents should not shy away from topics they are uncomfortable with.
Nice one. noted many points from this article.
More such conversations in Indian families are needed. Parents can refer this before speaking to their children about it. - Siddhi
Relationships is not a topic that is usually discussed in a typical Indian family, mine being the same. So, th fact that this article encourages parents to take this up and allow for a more open communication between parents and children is reassuring.
Helpful and comes in handy during personal encounters with children in general.
