Maintain a Healthy Relationship With Your Parents

Article by wangcan

Of course you love your parents — that’s a given. But at times, maintaining the bond between parent and adult child can be as challenging as that between parent and teenager.

These days, both of you are confronting new challenges — retirement or career changes, health issues, concerns about the future. It’s to be expected these issues will affect your relationship, but as you change, so, too, must your relationship with your parents change.Part of that evolution requires forging a new relationship, one between mature adults rather than “parent” and “child.” You already have the basic underpinnings — love and shared memories. Add mutual respect and common interests and you may find a more fulfilling relationship with your mother and your father than any you’ve had since childhood.

Of course, some things never change — Mom might still offer her unsolicited opinions on your weight and wardrobe, and Dad might still only start a conversation if it has to do with your car. The key is to love the best parts of ?them and learn to accept the rest. Here are 20 Stealth healthy ways to forge an adult relationship with your parents and enhance what might not always have been the strongest of bonds.

Be kind, respectful and helpful to the friends of your parents.

1. When entering the private room of parents, seek their permission before entering.

2. Always be cheerful in their presence.

3. Speak kindly and tenderly with them.

4. When speaking to parents, keep your gaze low. Do not stare them in the face.

5. Do not raise your voice above the voices of your parents.

6. Be humble in their presence.

7. When accompanying parents on a walk, do not walk in front of them nor on the right or left side. Walk slightly behind them.

8. Even in their absence, speak highly and respectfully of them.

9. Do not give preference to the wife over them (this does not apply to the rights of the wife. Where parents instruct their son to violate or discard the obligatory rights of his wife, it will not be permissible to obey them in this case.)

10. Always endeavour to keep them happy.

11. Do not embark on a journey without their permission.

12. When they question you, do not inconvenience them by delaying your reply.

13. It is highly disrespectful to refrain from answering them.

14. If at any time you were disrespectful to your parents, regret your action and hasten to obtain their pardon.

15. Never be disrespectful to parents. Do not say a harsh word to them.

16. Even if parents are unjust, it is not lawful for children to ill-treat, disobey or displease them.

17. Obey them in all lawful things. If they instruct you to do anything which is unlawful in the Sharee’ah, then politely and with respect and apology decline. Never refuse rudely nor argue with them.

18. When parents abuse, scold or even beat their children, they should submit to such treatment with humility. Never should they utter a word of disrespect or complaint, nor should they display on their faces any indication of disgust or anger. Bear their treatment in silence and with patience. Make du’aa for them.

19. Assist them in all lawful ways even if they happen to be non-Muslims.

20. Whenever you see them, greet them.
