Why Are Parents Sometimes Overprotective?
Something that I have been interested in learning more about has been why are parents sometimes overprotective? I remember my sisters talking about how sometimes it’s so annoying when your parents are always talking about how they should behave . It wasn’t interesting to me. I didn’t care. Also I was too young. Lately the issue has caught my eye again. I know that many people feel that parents are too overprotective and that sometimes they are annoying, but what I think is that they just love us with all their hearts. Now that’s just what I have think , it may or may not be true.
One thing that I know for sure about parents over protections that they love us, we may think that it is bad that they are always there,but without them we will miss our basic educations and if we are in trouble they are the only ones who will be there to save us, and if the parents are not there to give us advice we will be nothing for example we won’t be on the right track. One thing I know for sure is that when my parents annoy me, I don’t care I just want them be there for me and love me. I have been interested in learning about this topic but I never did.
This topic is interesting to me because I feel that many teenagers don’t just care about their parents because they feel that they are annoying, but one thing they do not realize is that the love of a parent is better than even other people that you think they love you,and that you won’t have anybody that will love you like them. For example when you get kicked out of your apartment because you had controversy and you couldn’t pay for the apartment parents are the ones who will take you back into the house.
Being that I didn’t have a lot of background information , I chose to do some research on this topic. As I searched for blogs and news articles on Google, I came across this one article: “Over protective parents from the child's point of view”
http://www.helium.com/items/1025740-over-protective-parents-from-the-chi.... This article provided a lot of information and opinion on my topic. Some people feel that it is bad and some people just see the positive side of it.This article was about how teenagers and some adults think about parental protection “I believe that every parent in this world shouldn't be perfect, but they must meet up to two requirements: They must love their child dearly and they must be helpful towards their children physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.” This statement didn’t really surprise me all that much, but it did make me feel good, because this article shows that my statement about why parents are being overprotective is because they love us and just want the best for us.
In another article: http://www.jewishaz.com/jewishnews/030704/parents.shtml there was this one sentence that made me nod my head in agreement with the writer. It was “However, I frequently see parents taking protection to the extreme and as a result, their children are unprepared to face the world.” This is so true because parents know why they are being protective they know more things that we don’t know yet, so they are doing the best for us but we may think that it’s annoying.
All of this makes me think that everything I was saying about the parents being overprotective is true because they want the best for us.This has been proven in this article so I feel very happy about the new information that I learned.
