Top Parenting Mistakes You Need Avoid
Every parent in this world strives their best while disciplining and taking care of their children. There are so many things to do in life like work and household chores but to make the life our children, parents do every possible thing. But sometimes they overdo certain things. Here are some of mistakes which parents need to avoid while parenting.
Comparing: Human tend to draw comparisons but if you are comparing your kid with other children of their age then you are doing it all wrong. Saying your child that “look at the other child how better they are from you”. This will only make them sad. The emotions of children are very sensitivity and they are too young to understand the negative criticism. This will make him a negative person and he will grow up as nervous adults.
Over Protective: - Parents want to do their best while protecting their child. But the right thing to do is not to over protect. Some of the mothers won’t let their child go out of their sight. They don’t trust anybody to take care of their child. They over indulge in children's fight. We all love our children but overprotecting can hinder the growth and independence. They will never become self-sufficient.
Being Absent: - Parents don’t need to spend 24 hours a day with their child but when spending time with them give them undivided attention. This means setting asides all the household chores and phone. It might get difficult to unplug from the entire world but this will help in giving your child the more focused time.
Getting Angry: - Children's can be very annoying at times but parents need to keep calm. Try not to yell just because you had a bad day. If you think that you are getting angry at your child frequently then take some time out and think about what you are doing wrong and try to find a solution instead of getting a solution.
Being too hard on yourself: - Parenting is not an easy task, every elder you meet gives a complete list of do’s and don’ts in parenting and then you think how much you are lacking. But the truth is you are doing a great job. Appreciate yourself at times and cut some slack for yourself.
