How often have you heard that bad kids come from bad parents? The fact is that there are several signs of bad parenting and the above mentioned parenting tip is one of them.
Parents enjoy the authority in ‘guiding’ their children in front of others and also in public. If their children try to confront them, they try to stop them which in a way block their kids’ ideas or view point. They also want them not to react in public. Because if they react, for parents it would be disobedience and disrespect. By repeated prodding in public, parents make children to feel belittled which in further make them incapable of doing anything on their own and standing on their view point. And when they grow up as an adult they lack self-esteem, confidence and doesn’t even stand up for themselves. A constantly criticized child can lose as much confidence & self-esteem. They even get afraid of public speaking which results them into an introvert. Their blossoming as an individual who has his/her view point and stand gets vanished. Well, Parents shouldn’t do so more importantly in public in front of their friends, siblings and dear ones.
Dear Parents your child is an echo of your actions. Our actions speak louder than words. The attitude, views, goals, and perspective of a child depends to a large extent on what he or she learns from his or her parents because life is all about the learning and living off what we have learned. Always remember “Praise in Public & Punish in Private”. Never ever yell on your kids in front of their dear ones specially their friends, siblings and cousins. Always remember our kids do have a reputation/respect which they have made in front of them and they care about it. Parenting requires a lot of patience and things are often not so bad as they seem. So try to deal them good-naturedly. But it doesn’t mean that they abuse you in front of their near dear. If they try to do so, you have to stop them then and there only.
You are a parent, who have to measure up to the expectations your child would have at every stage of his/her life. Let your child beam like a flower blossoming in the sun.
