@Viswamitra In tamil they say Tholukku minjinaal thozhan . Treat a grown child as a friend . Teenagers are shoulder height only . But most people dint treat them as friends . That is when more control is shown because parents get afraid imagining this and that ! More advice is needed for parents only ! The man in that news item is abnormal . Thank goodness not many are so over the top lunatic . But what you say is correct . Mutual resoect and trust is essential to run a marriage smoothly .
