Parenting is so important, and especially with the time changing rapidly and the lives getting busier there is very little time that parents get on a daily basis for their family and kids. It is absolute essential to know the fundamental ways of behaviour with your kid as what they learn now will decide the type of the personality and character that they will become in the years to come. How you treat your child will define the way the child will behave with others.
A Preschool is a child’s second home and teachers are the mentors only second to parents. In preschool, the fundamental behaviour and skills are imparted to the kid in most compassionate manner. But there are places that a kid learns from. These are the places and events that parents often ignore or are uninformed about. We bring you a list of common mistakes that parents do which has a long-lasting effect on how your child perceives and reacts to the situations in his or her life.
Not spending quality time with your kids
Parents need to spend as much time as possible with their kids as the love and affection that they get now will complete the kid emotionally.
Keeping the home atmosphere negative
Kids learn greatly by observing what they see. It is crucial that parents do not vent out anger on them. Keeping the home as well as surrounding atmosphere positive will make a world of a difference in way they behave in their lives.
It is essential to add limitations to some activities like limited time on television etc. but restricting responsibility on every other thing will restrict the thought process and ability of the kid. As the famous saying says build the child for the road not the road for the child. Let the child face and work out with the responsibility that he shall face, it will only make him better.
Arguing in front of your child.
Never argue or speak loudly in front of your child. If you have difference in opinions in the house, remember you are not only yelling and creating an angry atmosphere but imparting the same in the kids as well.
Never wait until the problem gets solved automatically. Effective parental communication is the pillar of how the child grows. Always communicate clearly to the kids and gain their confidence in the matters of confusion and despair.
Not Expressing your love.
Childhood is the time when the kids seek emotional support from their parents. Lacking much necessary emotional support from them can lead them to depression and other emotional disorders in the time to come. Always talk to your kids, tell them stories, cuddle with them and let them feel your love for them.
Never compare siblings
Each kid has their own talents and abilities and by comparing them you are lowering their self esteem and this feeling stay with throughout their lives. When you constantly compare them, they will become insecure and will lose trust in you. This also may lead the child to start hating their siblings and thereby they might behave aggressively, pick fights, tease and even hit each other.
