These can be close relatives, parents, aging grand parents or friends who have moved to another place and don’t meet often. In such cases it can be difficult to keep bonds strong, however there is always an easy solution to such issues. Read on to find out…
Changes in family structures
For the past several hundreds of years, the family structure in India consisted of an aged patriarch who was the head of the family, his wife, their grown sons along with their wives, and finally the grand children all living under the same roof. The father and sons would often work together in same family business or farm labour activity while the grand mother would take care of the children in the house as her daughters in law went about the daily household routine. They would have their meals together and share their troubles and worries with each other. When the heads of the family became too old, they would be cared for by the new generation. In this manner, the entire family would cooperate together peacefully and coexist in harmony.
However, this idea of an ‘ideal family’ has undergone a rapid transformation due to the changes of the modern world. Parents no longer live with their children but in special care homes where they have each and every medical facility they might require, experienced nurses to take care of their needs, but nobody to talk to and even their children seldom visit them. The children make their own families apart from each other which is popularly known as ‘nuclear families’. They have their separate troubles and worries and the only time that the entire family might meet each other is during special festivals or events that come only once or twice in a year.
Due to this problem, old parents and relatives may feel very left out of their own children’s lives. Often times the only memories they have are when the child was young and still needed their help. After the child starts working and have their own family they become engrossed in their own life and unintentionally ignore their parents. Since the parents usually have nobody else to talk to they fall into a sad quietness.
