Section – I : Reading comprehension
Q. 1. Read the following passage and answer the questions.
Too many parents these days can‘t say no. As a result, they find themselves raising children‘ who respond greedily to the advertisements aimed right at them. Even getting what they want doesn‘t satisfy some kids; they only want more. Now, a growing number of psychologists, educators and parents think it‘s time to stop the madness and start teaching kids about what‘s really important: values like hard work, contentment, honesty and compassion.
The struggle to set limits has never been tougher—and the stakes have never been higher. One recent study of adults who were overindulged as children, paints a discouraging picture of their future: when given too much too soon, they grow up to be adults who have difficulty coping with life‘s disappointments. They also have distorted sense of entitlement that gets in the way of success in the work place and in relationships.
Psychologists say that parents who over indulge their kids, set them up to be more vulnerable to future anxiety and depression. Today‘s parents themselves raised on values of thrift and self-sacrifice, grew up in a culture where no‘ was a household word. Today‘s kids want much more, partly because there is so much more to want. The oldest members of this generation were born in the late 1980s, just as PCs and video games were making their assault‘ on the family room.
They think of MP3 players and flat screen TV as essential utilities, and they have developed strategies to get them. One survey of teenagers found that when they crave for something new, most expect to ask nine times before their parents give in. By every measure, parents are shelling out record amounts. In the heat of this buying blitz, even parents who desperately need to say no, find themselves reaching for their credit cards. Today‘s parents aren‘t equipped to deal with the problem.
Many of them, raised in the 1960s and 70s, swore they‘d act differently from their parents and have closer relationships with their own children. Many even wear the same designer clothes as their kids and listen to the same music. And they work more hours; at the end of a long week, it‘s tempting to buy peace with yes‘ and not mar precious family time with conflict. Anxiety about the future is another factor. How do well intentioned parents say no to all the sports gear and arts and language lessons they believe will help their kids thrive in an increasingly competitive world? Experts agree: too much love won‘t spoil a child. Too few limits will.
