My parents are both teachers. They did their best when it comes to parenting. My mother is a teacher in a school. She taught me various aspects of my faith right from childhood. That is something that I appreciate about the way she parented me. Due to her lessons, I started praying at the age of five. She taught me how to tackle challenges with the help of my faith. She taught me various duas or supplications which are helpful in appropriate situations, including challenging phases. She took
stand for me against people who tried to de-moralise me. My mother and I have an empathetic bond. Whenever I faced any problem I would turn to her.
My father is a sports teacher in a school. He has completed 27 years now there. He is very hard-working and dedicated when it comes to work. And he was very strict when it came to parenting. He was very concerned about my education. He made efforts to help me progress academically. Due to his being a sports teacher, I excelled in many indoor and outdoor games. Nurturing
a child to live in a competitive world is something that I appreciate in the way my father parented me.
