The 18-year-old undergraduate who stabbed his father to death is a big lesson for all parents. Any parent building houses without building his home is training criminals who will demolish those houses. The boy at 18 years had been sent out of university twice at a tender age. Who facilitated his fast career? Did the boy actually pass through normal process in school? Let children learn at their pace. Perhaps, he was frustrated because those assisting him were no longer there and all the training given now looks like hatred. It is better to train a child in hard work than to repair a man. It is indeed a lesson to parents to stop pushing their children to the wall through unnecessary help, otherwise one day they will fight back if they fail in life. Parents should not always indulge their children.
