You are blessed when you become a parent. The most beautiful moment of your life is when you look into the eyes of your new born and hold his little fingers in your hand. Parenting is the most challenging and rewarding job. The relationship of a parent and a child is very strong as it involves so much love, care and affection. The parents make countless sacrifices to provide best facilities to their children, so in the old age it is duty of every child to take good care of their parents. Parents are the most precious gift from Allah.
Now your parents have grown old and are unable to take care of themselves and it is your duty that you should take care of them. Life has gotten so busy and people immersed in it head to toe that there is hardly any time or any effort to spend some time with aging parents. There are still some people who consider taking care of their old parents a privilege and actually make an effort to be part of their deteriorating life.
You have to be aware of a big change in your life when your parents are old because they need to move in with you or you have to move in with them because most of the parents don’t want to leave their place because of their special attachment to their house so have to adjust according to their will. You have to alter your lifestyle according to their need. Try to give them space in your house if they are moving with you, don’t try to restrict them from anything and assist them only when they want you to.
Always give respect to your aging parents because in this age parents need respect and love more than anything else. Instead of making decisions for them, ask them what do they want and always take guidance from them for making any big decision of your life it will be good for you and they will also feel respected.
Always try to give financial independence to your parents, maybe they don’t feel comfortable in asking for money from you so it is better to give some amount according to your capability to them.
Make yourself available. Try to give them time even if you are busy just take out few minutes to chat with them or you can take them out for a walk or a small outing. Teach your children to love your parents and give them respect; usually grand children are very attached to their grandparents so never stop your children from getting close to your parents because in old age grand children are the most beautiful and precious thing .
