India is moving at a faster pace compared to many Western countries.
The current generation is a lot smarter than the earlier, has more avenues of content and knowledge consumption. The good also comes with the bad and many a times, consequences are not realised, till it is too late.Crime and violence has increased, especially against children which keeps parents, particularly the working one, which is more or less the norm; awake worrying about their child’s safety beyond the comfort zone.
An anxious & fearful parent place unwarranted restrictions at times on their child, becoming over protective.
Children need to grow, play, learn keeping in mind the unsafe environment but should not be fearful of it. According to psychologist Abraham Maslow, the human need for safety must be met before growth and development occurs in other areas. This is especially true for young children.
