This question asked in [CBSE Delhi Set - I, 2020]

Read the following passage carefully: 

(1) As the family finally sets off from home after many arguments, there is a moment of lull as the car takes off.  “Alright, so where are we going for dinner now?” asks the one at the driving wheel. What follows is a chaos, as  multiple voices makes as many suggestions. 

(2) By the time, order is restored and a decision is arrived at, tempers have risen, feelings injured and there is at  least one person grumbling. 

(3) Twenty years ago, you would step out of home, decision of meal and venue already made with no arguments  or opposition and everybody looked forward to the meal with equal enthusiasm. The decision was made by  the head of the family and the others fell in line. Today every member of the family has a say in every decision  which also promotes a sense of togetherness and bonding. 

(4) We empower our kids to take their own decisions from a very early age. We ask them the cuisine they prefer,  the movie they want to see, the holiday they wish to go on, and the subjects they wish to study. 

(5) It’s a closely connected world out there, where children consult and guide each other. A parent’s well meaning  advice can sound like nothing more than unnecessary preaching. How then do we reach our children through  all the conflicting views and make the voice of reason be heard? Children today question choices and prefer to  go with the flow. 

(6) What then is the best path to take? I would say the most important thing one can do is to listen. Listen to your  children and their silences. Ensure that you keep some time aside for them, insist that they share their stories  with you. Step into their world. It is not as complicated as it sounds; just a daily half an hour of the quality time  would do the trick.
