POSITIVE PARENTING: PARENT-CHILD RELATIONSHIP

When it comes to family life, everyone strives to figure out how the relationship between parents and children can become ideal. Positive parenting techniques work well for raising children with discipline and good moral values and are every parents’ dream. However, it is not an easy feat. And it is important to know that the parent-child relationship is a two-way street, in other words, it is a partnership between a parent and their child.

1. Lack of Attention

Parents often gives more importance to their work over spending time with their child. parents think that they can give good care to their children. But it is not true, parents should not focus so much on work that they begin ignoring and neglecting the child.

2. Not recognizing good behavior

we parents often don’t recognize good behavior after the child is continuously behaving properly. This only makes the child feel neglected. On the other hand, observing and appreciating good behavior motivates the child to continue with his/her behavior and keep up the good behavior.

3. Comparing with another child

Comparing your child with another child is the worst thing you can do for your child. By doing so, you will only remind the child of what he/she lacks. The child may feel he/she is not enough, and it can wound them for the rest of their lives.

4. Not practicing what you teach them 

children always imitate what they see. So, whatever you teach them you should also practice it. If you shout get angry and become physically aggressive, you cannot expect a child to be calm and quiet. So, if we are practicing good behavior and habits then the child will also do the same.

5. Doing too much

To protect their children often end up in not letting them do anything. This habit of saving children before they even make a mistake is harmful to their growth. Children need to be able to do things on their own so that they can learn from their mistakes and not repeat the mistake in the future. 

6. Giving feedback at the wrong time 

Timing is everything, as the right thing should be done at the right time. If your child does something in a wrong way and you give negative feedback immediately after that event or action, you risk discouraging them. Pick your timing when you give feedback, and tell him/her that you did it wrongly and this is the right way.
