Morning Musings… 8

Should one wake up early or late in the mornings? Must be a topic of debate in many households in India. Or it may be a way of life for many. I always had this question during my school days but now my mornings begin at 6am.

Many parents feel that waking up early is a trait which Humans should exhibit and force their kids to follow the same. Am not against parents forcing but the method of forcing. Cant we make a grown up child understand about what and how we feel? Why do we have to impose a few things? I have always felt that a kid does what his or her parents force to do but what about later when they grow old? Do they listen to parents? Do they follow those imposititions?

Another school of thought believes in letting do whatever the kids want to and so do not impose nor try to make them understand. I do not agree here too. Giving kids a free hand in their age is a bit too much but a little bit of prodding always helps. So push your kid but to an extent that the kid has the freedom to make his or her own decision. That will turn out the best for both.

This is just a thought going on in my mind. So do share your views about this!

  1. I feel each one has its natural rythm. We should educate the children and give them knowledge, but it would be wise to let them operate on their own frequency🙂


  2. this has been point of argument for most of the homes where two generation leaves.

    personally, it feels really great to wake up early as you can get extra time to do something you like early in day instead of staying up for the late night to do that.

    waking early has more benefits than staying up late.. personal experience.
