With the world constantly changing, that means new habits and new behaviors that can be very different than the ones we grew up with as kids.
The new generation has new technologies that allow them to do things the older generation was not blessed to have. However, these technologies have distracted most children from the need to go out and socialize.
Parents can find it challenging to raise their kids if they’re basing their teachings on how they were raised as kids. Because of this struggle, Psychologists at Harvard University have found that there are certain elements that a parent must do that are very important for a kid’s childhood. Read on to find out what they are.
Spending Quality Time With Your Kids: It’s not enough to just spend time with your children, you need to be with them completely. No Xbox and no IPhone can ever replace the bond a parent has with their child. By communicating with them, listening to them and doing things they enjoy doing, they will learn how to be a considerate and caring person.
When you’re communicating with your child and listening to their dilemmas, it’s very important not to take sides on a situation. You want your child to learn from their experiences through their own perspective.
Be A Strong Role Model: At a younger age, children see and listen to everything around them, so it’s imperative that your kids need to see a strong leader in their life. You need to practice all the characteristics that you are implementing to your children. That means fairness, politeness and honesty need to be shown not just taught.
Your child will look up to you, but only if you earn their respect. By doing this you are showing your child that you are as human as you can possibly be, and that comes with flaws.
