8 Tips for Adults to Communicate With Their Parents – The Maravi Post

Published

Parents often don’t understand their children. It’s hard for them to understand why their children chat with their friends instead of going out with them or why they choose 22Bet Ethiopia betting instead of visiting a real football match.

But such behavior doesn’t make adults stop talking to their parents. They still can get in touch, using these 8 tips.

Don’t Treat Communication With Parents as a Duty

Communicating with parents – especially if it involves negative emotions – is much harder for adult children to accept if they treat it as a duty.

Here it is important to remember that no one decides whether to be born or not, and to be “indebted” to someone, you have to borrow something from someone or ask for it on your own initiative.

All obligations in this sense are incumbent upon man himself, or they are incumbent upon him by his own love (which makes sense). So you are free to choose how to communicate with your loved ones.

Call First

While some parents may be overly intrusive with their children, many parents, on the other hand, are afraid to bother anyone. At a certain age, they may begin to feel their society is unwanted, and they are unnecessary in your life.

To help them overcome this feeling, don’t wait for them to call you themselves, get ahead of them: call and visit them on your own initiative. When parents feel their importance to you, they will be calmer, and there will be much less cause for conflict, you can be sure.

Don’t “Write off” Parents in Advance

The most important thing parents need is your attention and sincere participation in their lives. Try to consult with them, worry about their affairs, and involve them in communication. All of this makes for a rich parent’s life.

At the same time, if you see that they do not have their own interests and hobbies, try to organize their leisure time, get them interested in something, and then the increased attention to you (if there is such) will weaken, and it will be easier to live not only for them, but also for yourself.

Give Less Negative News

With age, people have a fear of life because they themselves are no longer able to influence it significantly. So, some of the problems become unsolvable and cause older parents serious difficulties and stress.

They are especially frustrated by their children’s problems because they can no longer assist in solving the difficult situation. This, in turn, makes them feel powerless.

If you do not want your parents to be in a similar state, try to shield them from too traumatic news.

Don’t Try to Re-educate Parents

As children grow up and parents get older, the disposition of forces in the family begins to change. The older generation becomes limited in their abilities, while the younger generation, on the other hand, is just getting into the swing of things.

Elderly parents may be less knowledgeable than you about many things, and they may need your help in dealing with difficult situations, just as you needed theirs once upon a time. But never take advantage of this and assert your authority over them, as if they – unsophisticated children. You can never remake your parents.

Don’t settle scores with them for childhood traumas and resentments – they are adults, and they must be accepted for who they are, if you choose to keep in touch with them.

Allow Them to Take Care of Themselves

Parents’ anxious calls and treating you like a child (“Are you sure you’ve packed your suitcase and put everything you need?”) can be annoying, and that’s fine.

But you shouldn’t let your emotions run wild. The phrase that children for parents are children at any age is a fact. This way they also allow themselves to feel their own strength and importance.

Be Understanding, but Never Let Yourself Be Manipulated

With age people often deteriorate character – it’s no secret. This is primarily due to the fact that a person becomes weaker purely physically – it becomes more fragile, susceptible to various diseases.

Besides, an elderly person is much less flexible in a psychological sense than a young one. So be surprised at the parents’ changed behavior – try to understand and accept them, without, however, allowing themselves to be manipulated.

Forgive Them

The important quality of being able not to resent our parents for their misdeeds. No country in the world had a better parenting school in their day and they raised us as best they could by intuition and tried to be good more often than not. But if things didn’t work out, they are now very sorry. And you will definitely understand how they feel when you have your own kids.

How ‘I am waiting to see almost killed me’ – The Maravi Post

Published

By Murielle E.

Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), 29th November 2021 -/African Media Agency (AMA)/- I am Murielle. Former beauty queen. Executive. Mother of three. If there is one thing that characterises me at first sight, it is elegance. I’m always dressed to the nines, perched on high heels. I am the kind of woman you meet in the big African capitals. I should also mention that I am in my fifties. I’m not saying any of this out of pride. I tell you this so that you understand what follows

Here is my story. 

Not long ago, I was like some of you: sceptical about the COVID-19 vaccine. I thought I would wait, observe how things played out, then make up my own mind about whether to get it. When a friend’s husband told us that he had received two doses of the vaccine, I thought to myself: let’s see if he develops any side effects.

So I waited. But everything changed one afternoon in September. It began with the typical malaria symptoms : cold, aches, fever. But soon, I had trouble breathing. I was literally suffocating.

Seeing that I was in bad shape, my eldest son decided to call an ambulance. I was taken to a private clinic in Abidjan. They ran some tests. Soon, the diagnosis was in : COVID-19. After analysis, it turned out that I had the Delta variant, which is not covered by health insurance providers in Ivory Coast. I had to pay a deposit before I could be treated. Half-conscious and unable to pay the amount requested, my family rallied together to raise the funds so that I could be admitted. I was in the hospital for a full 10 days. I left exhausted, out of breath, and financially depleted since I had to pay the balance for treatment before I could be released from the hospital. 

I’m better today – but I’m far from fully recovered. In fact, the hardest part of this experience is the after effects I still have—especially the breathlessness, despite undergoing aerosol rehabilitation sessions. But I’m grateful that I have my life.

Today, I am passionate about encouraging people to get vaccinated. It’s true that the vaccine doesn’t guarantee that you won’t contract COVID-19. But, it is still the surest way to avoid severe forms of the disease. According to statistics, not only are the vaccines more than 90 per cent effective in preventing hospitalizations and death, they also meet the safety and efficacy criteria established by the WHO and have received the required regulatory approval. 

If you’re like me and waiting to see, my message to you is simple : Please don’t wait. Don’t learn the hard way. Don’t wait until it’s too late.

Widespread vaccination is the best safeguard for our children’s futures – The Maravi Post

Published

By Dr Jonathan Awori

Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), 29th November 2021 -/African Media Agency (AMA)/- I remember my first COVID-19 patient. She was 16 and I was called to see her after she had been admitted to hospital. Alone in her hospital room, she looked scared. Though I tried to hide it, I was too. I was, after all, knowingly entering the same room as a COVID-positive person. At that time, we knew little about this highly contagious virus, and a vaccine was months away—at best.

What we did know, however, was encouraging for young people. Early data indicated that while young people were as susceptible to the disease as anyone else, they were much less likely to be hospitalized or die from it. Yet there were other costs. Hidden costs.  

Decked out in my personal protective equipment, I remember how hard it was to hear my patient over the hum of the fan in my headgear. I introduced myself and we had a brief chat. Over the next two days, I noticed that she looked forward to our brief check-ins. It was then I realized that she probably felt lonely. Away from her family, she had no-one to talk to, no one to hug, no one to laugh with, or do any of the things that feel human. In the hospital, everyone avoided her room unless necessary. Even when they came in, they tried to keep their distance. Understandably. 

One day, after our brief check in, I reached out for her hand and squeezed it briefly. It was a fleeting moment. And a gloved hand. But I hoped it would mean something to her. I hope it did something to meet the need for human connection.

Those of us in the medical community, often think about COVID-19 in terms of case load and lives lost. From this lens, we can misunderstand the peculiar suffering young people have endured under this pandemic. COVID-19 has cost young people their education, their mental health, their wellbeing, and their hopes. It has dimmed their prospects for economic prosperity. 

Today, widespread vaccination is the best tool we have for saving lives in Africa. The research is clear – vaccines are highly effective, particularly at preventing hospitalization and death. And while many of us see the importance of vaccination for our parents—for the elderly—we also have to appreciate that vaccination is the only way to safeguard our children’s futures. Vaccination is the only way they can resume life, learning, and social interactions. It’s the only way economies can fully and permanently reopen and begin recovering to restore and create opportunities for young people. 

Africa is a predominantly young population, with almost 60 percent of our population under the age of 25. The longer this pandemic drags, the more profound its effects will be on their lives. They have a tremendous stake in this crisis—and we have a responsibility to ensure they are able to live healthy, productive lives, and to set the right example, by getting the vaccine.
