Today is International Day of Families , I would not have stopped to check about it had it not been a project for the little one’s school. The school had indicated that one of the parents should join the kid during the online class and everyone will have brunch together. Online classes for kids, working from home, bushy eyebrows , erratic periods, no grocery slots, you get the drift! The pancakes though appreciated by the husband weren’t a hit with the young man of the household. We all know about how families hand us down traditions , teach us values, give us security, and companionship. It is also true that a lot of times family members find it difficult to understand each other and eventually, even if they are staying under the same roof, they drift apart. I know a lot of young girls who are finding it very difficult to stay with their families under the current lockdown. As a kid, it used to be a full-fledged experiment at home to make the potatoes grow eyes. There is a need to clear under that carpet and it can be done by giving equal power and control to each member rather than one person calling all shots and by accepting each other’s choices without judging them. We are changing, with grandmothers joining zoom calls, it is clear that we are reinventing our relationships.
