It is very difficult to plan any intervention with children for concrete outcomes. As far as children are concerned, you can neither leave them to just grow without any planned intervention nor can you plan anything concretely. So, should we allow whatever happens to children to just happen? And not guide them? These are very difficult choices. In this article, we are attempting to reflect on what we, as parents, did because we wanted, our children to be independent, courageous, humane, and free. We did not have any idea how to bring up children and though we got help from others, basically, it was trial and error, succeeding sometimes and failing quite a few times. Many things are done instinctively; many others just happened in the flow as we were living our lives!
