A couple from Ghatlodiya sought help from the Abhayam 181 helpline after allegedly facing harassment from their 21-year-old son. The youth is a final year engineering student.
The parents were not aware that he had failed in many examinations. He was reportedly in constant need of money to show off in his friends circle. When his demands were not fulfilled, he used to abuse his parents and break things in the house.Despite their limited income, the couple had taken a loan to fund their son’s education.
The helpline provided counseling to the son, stressing the importance of abstaining from abusive language and aggressive behavior.
