Raising Children: Parents should not do these things with children at all

For a short time during childhood, stories of being lost somewhere would have been with most people my age.

Being in a public place with your parents and suddenly discovering that none of your parents are holding your hand, feeling separated from them and suddenly getting lost in the crowd. We all have these memories.

The world then was probably more familiar and relatively smaller and even parents were not so brazen with the safety of their children. However, at that time there was no mobile phone.

I also remember an incident like this. When I got lost in the streets of Faridkot, a small village in the Punjab, along with my little sister. He was five years old at the time.
