The most fragile part of life

Childhood is the most fragile part of human life, and unfortunately the most mishandled.
A small scratch of negativity on the innocent mind gets engraved forever, giving the person repeated jolts time and again.Whenever people encounter anything related to the unfortunate incidents of their childhood, a shock wave runs through their nerves giving the mind a sudden jolt. Such is the effect of paranoia, that it just clings on like a leech forever.
The adult world celebrates the tag of maturity, but when it comes to handling a child they just lag behind.Its children who are much more mature than the adults, they are sensitive to their pain.Even a small little child can sense, if something goes wrong in the family, you try to cry in front of them and you'd see how they give you the warmest hug, but if a child cries he/she is been shouted at, in many cases without finding out as to what might have gone wrong with them, this situation occurs with parents who are stressed out and neither have enough time nor patience for their family.
Parental fight is the worst tool of destruction for an innocent mind, it destroys a childs faith in relationships and leaves a disrupted future for them. Its because of such fights that a child is never able to confide in his/her parents, leading to cases of child abuse, since there is so much of tension in the family that the child thinks that he/she might be wrongly judged and the blame might come on them. Its a sad situation and has been happening since ages.
Grandparents have a great role to play in the life of their grandchildren, even if the parents are away or cannot take out time,the grandparents serve as an anchor, giving stability to a childs life.
Its but unfortunate that people are not sensitive towards their children, they love them but dont understand what they actually need, its not the toys that would give them perennial happiness, toys are just an instrument through which they explore their emotions, its quality time that a child needs the most, they need someone to answer the innumerable questions they ask, they need someone to play catch em catch, they need someone to celebrate their dolls wedding, they need someone to tell them unending stories, not many but very few teeny meeny wishes, just barter your time with them and they'll give your life a whole new meaning:)

What a very sensitive story, you are right on all accounts. My dad died when I was very young and I can remember the fights they had. I had only one grandparent and he was sickly and my mom gave us to her older sister to raise, a mistake. Did you write this from your experience as you grew up? Thank you for stopping by and have a great week, thanks for sharing.
