In this blazing era of choices (advantages), impatience and insecurities (disadvantages), many of us enter into and exit from relationships at an increasing speed. Even if we are officially tied to that person, emotionally inside, we have withdrawn ourselves or have given up on our hopes and aspirations from that relationship which once seemed promising. Some result in apathy, while others in depression, and increasingly more in crime.

Many of us struggle to get our children to do what we want out of them and then there are others who seem to have perfectly well behaved children, acing in different aspects of their development.
