“Actually you need to feel that other people rely on you. I think parents often miss that with children. We feel that it's our job to teach them, to protect them, to care for them. And we don't ever give them the chance then to build their own resilience by helping us solve problems... we can ask our kids for guidance every once in a while.“
– Adam Grant, leading psychologist, author and professor at Wharton
What might be a solution that you can come up with to help solve an issue faced by parents?
Children are keen observers, and oftentimes they recognise inconveniences, issues or struggles their parents face at home. The same issues could be frustrating other parents as well. You may have ideas to help people do things better, more efficiently and with more effective approaches. Can you identify a real-life problem that your parents face and come up with an innovative solution to help them?
