With trust, great responsibilities are given from parent to child. When the parent placed trust in the child they expect the child to be honest in every aspect of their lives and if the child does not break the parents’ trust he or she will be rewarded by the parent. When a child trust the parent he or she trust with confidence that their parent will provide for them, protect them and love them unconditionally. Once the parent does not break that trust the child will have the parent as friend and therefore confides their joy and sorrow in them.

A strong parent-child relationship will prevent much family and world crisis experienced today. With strong family ties a child would have the confidence to overcome any challenge society placed on them.
