Building Values In Children

Parenting Matters

“The future belongs to the curious, the ones who are not afraid to try it, explore it, poke at it, question it and turn it inside out.”

Ever wonder why your little prince does exactly what you asked him not to? Your son has a natural urge to explore but no natural urge to obey. Therefore, he acts in disobedience and goes on to explore things. Keeping this in mind, it is easier and more effective to childproof your home instead of having a list of don’ts for your son.

Put yourself in your child’s place. Try to perceive how it is for a little person to face a barrage of limitations, accusations, deprivations, and shouting. Instead of long lectures, keep your instructions simple and say them in as few words as possible. In the long run, he will not only be disciplined but also develop self-esteem. According to Parenting Matters, ‘He is comfortable with himself and believes in his own capability. This child will truly be able to achieve his potential because he has been taught to look within rather than outside for guidance’.

The easiest way to get your little darling to imbibe a value is to practise it in front of him. Your son imbibes what he sees the parents do. This is the best way to teach him to share. How can you teach him other values? What effect do demotivating messages have on his psyche? How can you build his self-esteem?

This ClipBook will provide you with the information you need for a sure shot at building values in your child.
