When a child is born, his mother keeps a check on his each activity. When he’s going to sleep, when he would wake up, when would he eat and this continues for the whole life. A mother takes care of her child whole life with same love and devotion. What can describe the true meaning of child care than a mother herself! A mother has given an overview of how a child should be raised in each phase of life. So, here are some-
Forever Tips for Child Care at each stage of life-
The first phase:
We have to make some amendments on each step of the upbringing. A mother should accompany her child like a shadow tell the child turns 3. Some people have a mindset that beating up a child is the assurance to keep the child on the right track. But raising hands on your child has the potential to destroy your child’s mental health. The child may develop fear and may go through lack of confidence.
The second phase:
The child starts his next phase when he enters School. He learns to become independent and do his stuff like wearing clothes, taking care of his belongings, having lunch, he Learns all these himself while performing each activity, he gets used to this. Then the child enters into the age of 12 to 18 years, what we also call teen years. At this stage of life, a Child must realize and comprehend his responsibilities. Parents need to make the child understand what his responsibilities are, these responsibilities may be towards his family, his home, towards studies or, just being general, towards the society and environment. But, all these must be done with love and compassion.
One most important habit which must be developed in the child during these years is to share things with his parents. A child must see his parents as someone he can trust! By developing this habit, parents are keeping the child close to them because by this the child will always know that his parents are there to understand him in every situation. So instead of seeking help outside and taking wrong advises by an unreliable person, the child would always come to his parents to share his problem and ask for help and advises. This way parents will always know the happenings of their child’s life and can always guide better for his better future and well-being.
The complexity of sharing things may develop when a child tells his parents about something which he did wrong! Now, the parents have two choices one- to scold their child and break this process of sharing forever but the second one is good for both. The second one is that parents help the child to understand what he did wrong and why he should not commit this mistake in the future.
- By beating up the child or scolding him loud he’ll develop the fear to share things with the parents because obviously, he doesn’t want to get scolded or beaten up for his mistakes. What he wants is a guidance of what should be done in future to prevent this or to fix the problem.
- Whenever a child faces failure in his life whether it’s about low grades or his bad performance in anything the parents must always look out for the ways to increase the confidence level of the child so that he can perform better next time. Do not criticize him for not performing well in an examination or some activity this will decrease is already low self-esteem which would result in the next failure of his life.
- Parents should be the supreme force to teach the child that winning or losing and facing the failure is the ultimate truth of life and all these come with the part and parcel of life. They should encourage their child to work on his weaknesses while focusing on his strengths. The parents’ faith in the child will encourage him to get up again with the same motivation and dedication to do better in the next chance or the next try.
The third phase:
Next, comes the age of entering the adulthood which is the age of 18 and beyond it. At this age, parents should give their child complete freedom to choose what he wants to do in his life and what he wants to pursue as a career. Giving the child the freedom to choose this career will always give the child an opportunity to perform his best with all his heart. Forcing the child to follow a career will never give him success, he may earn a well amount of money but his heart will always find happiness in his passion. And success is not just defined by the parameter of money, it’s about the complete happiness with mental, physical, emotional and financial well-being.
So, he would be actually successful when he would be loving doing what he does! The parents always want to fulfill every wish of their child so choosing his field is also like his wish which would provide joy to the family. The child will always respect his parents for allowing him to pursue his dreams.
