Have you ever observed how role modelling affects a child?
Have been watching my son's playmates recently, its not surprising to see the son of a muscle-flexing, arm-twisting, aggressive dad, turn into a bully; and the son of a "yes minister" turn into the bully's victim. Yes we see a lot of these situations shown in movies, however 'real' life is sometimes not far from 'reel' life. We grow in the image of those we love. My heart aches for both kids and I hope they will someday be able to break out of their parental stereotypes. Have you observed such situations in your neighbourhood?
After having tried Paneer Jalfrezi and Tofu Jalfrezi I was eager to try the chicken version. Undoubtedly great results!
