    What he tells is one side true,other side when both parents have to work and see how to bring up family,is also not always having time as a child wants.Nowadays life is become more at office requires more your energy,time.when comes home you are tired and same time home work,shopping,cooking too makes a burden.mostly women are here affected.without help of another person cant go on.when children get sick ,that too extra time needed .Only who earns good can survive and can give more care and time.still one should take time to make the child understand why she /he cant have more time for the child.still there are parents who take more time to their mobile and less to their children.These should understand that children are our future .Invest more time on them and they will later will be thankfull for it.

    Time has become a "precious element" for anyone and everyone in this world of challenges. It's a new world we are all confronted with, and no one can deny that. While parents are busy with their daily commitments in life, the children also are engaged with their own daily programs, most of them are discreet and most of them are "self centered" with their own peer groups. Besides, the daily precious time is focused also on televisions, social medias and even on internet.

    It's a different set of ball games each one has to face, whether we like it or not. Lesser we criticize is better for all of us because that is the new lifestyle each of us are obliged to accept and keep all our surroundings, young or old happy.

    "Tolerance" is the key for each one of us to accept. Tolerance allows us to face the daily life, regardless how tough the life could be. That's the present mode of life. What is ahead of us yet to be determined. God helps us all is the "best policy".
