How Do Parents and Children Agree Without An Argument

a·gree·ment
əˈɡrēmənt/
noun
 
  1. harmony or accordance in opinion or feeling; a position or result of agreeing.

If a kid wants or needs something, parents should at least consider the possibility, and vise versa. It is not okay for a parent or child to say no just because they can. Many parents and children would disagree with this, but they have become lovestruck with their power. The only other part of a parent /child relationship is for both the parent and the child to work with each other on making decisions.

At times families fight, but, hopefully, most of the time they love and respect each other. A great example of a parent not considering a child’s thought is when a child wants a dog. Sure, some families go through rough times, but the amount of times they happen will multiply if a child or parent is deprived of consideration (like getting a dog).

Children develop a certain want for things they have find interest in. “Dogs are great companions and they are there for people when no one else is,” a child might say. For some reason a parent would still say no. Or maybe a parent wants to got take a nap (all parents do once and awhile) and their child keeps annoying them to go to the zoo. Maybe the parent should think about it. If they take their kid to the zoo for an hour or two, they could take the nap they want, while if they just told the child no, they wouldn’t get their nap. Both of the family members are being deprived at that point.

Parents have always had their ideals. Sure, maybe they’re right at times, but it isn’t okay for them to use their power to feel like they’re in charge. It isn’t right for children to do so either. The one thing parents and children don’t realize is that they make decisions based solely on their own opinion. The choice is completely biased.

A takeaway thought about parents and children is that both should try to meet each other halfway. The parent should not be the only one making decisions, and neither should their child. A choice should be made with the thought of others and not only individually and if someone makes a biased decision, they should be given someone else’s opinion.
