Teens are not selfish..


I am not a big fan of sci-fi movies. Generally, my husband and son are the ones who like it and go to watch it together. This has been going on for a few years now. Now with my son having grown up and having his set of friends he mostly plans movies with his friends at times. My husband one day was sulking, “Now that he will watch all those English movies with his friends, whom will I watch the movies with? I will miss my partner.” My son reassured, “Don’t worry Baba, I will watch the movies twice, once with my friends and once with you.”

He has till now kept his word. Yesterday he came back from Surat trip with his friends and went in the night show to watch “Avengers: Infinity War” movie with his dad, before he watched it with his friends.

I often hear how teenagers are selfish and self-centered, specially boys who are not caring and thoughtful. Not true at all! Of course, as parents we have to accept the fact that they will move on in life, have their friends, a life of their own, but that doesn’t mean that they are selfish..
