“We’re often taught to respect our elders, but they should also respect the younger generation”
Are you a Komal Meer fan? If yes, then you need to listen to her advice!
Komal Meer is a new rising star in the Pakistani entertainment industry. In a very short span of time, she has conquered our TV screens with her phenomenal acting skills. We can all agree that Komal was outstanding in Resham Gali Ki Husna & Qurbatain! But now she is ruling our hearts in Wafa-Be-Mol & Benaam.
In a recent interview with FUCHSIA Magzine Komal imparted wisdom to our audience. Read on to find out what she had to say to today’s youth and adults!
1) Break The Generation Gap Through Healthy Communication
Komal says that there’s no denying that a generation gap exists between parents and their offspring, due to which there are a lot of misunderstandings. However, to bridge that gap, she states that parents & elders should have discussions at home. She clarifies that whatever we learn in our homes is exactly what we reflect in our interactions with society. Therefore, communication needs to be a two-way street, with efforts made from both parties – that’s the only way we’ll be able to exorcise ourselves of the numerous problems we face.
2) Educate Your Children About Things Considered “Taboo” In Our Society
Komal explains that there are so many awful things going on in our country, and parents often hesitate while addressing some topics. They tend to shy away from certain subjects and think that if they educate their children about taboo topics it might pollute their minds. However, she explains that if parents don’t discuss those topics at home in a safe environment, then their children will seek out information from unverified sources which will have negative consequences. Therefore, she advises parents to communicate certain issues with their children in ways that are easy for them to comprehend and quenches their thirst for knowledge.
3) Respect Should Be Mutual
Komal states that we’re often taught to respect our elders, but they should also respect the younger generation and allow them room to grow and learn from their mistakes. She states that most seniors are brusque in their dealings with the newcomers. This results in unfavourable conditions on the drama sets and breeds aggression.
4) Provide Constructive Feedback Instead Of Merely Criticizing
Komal stresses that adults should guide the young when they are wrong, as they are far more experienced in every aspect. Instead of saying you did this wrong (yeh theek nahi kia) tell them how they can make it right. Only through guidance and kindness will we be able to move forward as a society.
