Children are known for learning and discovering things by themselves.They are full of questions on how to live and act. George Carlin said, “Don’t just teach your kids to read, teach them to question what they read. Teach them to question everything.” They tend to do mistakes and wrong decisions in their growing stages. Parents should be their first educator and the one who guides them. What they see in their surroundings they will imitate and try. Whatever foundation that will be built in them will affect their lives and learning skills. Effective parenting helps them speedup their learning process.
Parents should be always prepared in day by day basis. Time is always a must for a growing child in need of attention. Discipline is a great way to teach your children the right attitude. Respect will always be gained on how parents will lead their children. Fathers are the ideal image of a leader while mothers are the one who will teach how important it is to care.
As said in a Chinese proverb “Do not confine your children to your own learning, for they were born in another time.” It is our responsibility to know what our children’s capabilities can reach. It is a challenge for the parents but it’s helpful enough to know what is best for their children. You will know which category your child fits best and that way, you can guide them to be successful in their own natural build.
Being a creative parent is great way to guide a child; especially the technology rises and mostly dominates the time. Sometimes, parents don’t have time to their children because of how busy they are in their field. Making use of technology such as learning through internet, videos, and educational games as substitute will be good in a right way. If it turns out that learning through technology will be a part of their daily routine; their knowledge will depend on it. A great way is to minimize it by creating schedules; because your attention and time will be the best way for them to learn.
Education will always start at home. Preparing them for higher learning will start to establish by growing a solid knowledge through good parenting. If the parents can give all the basic needs of the children in learning, it will be easier for them to live and start their journey and discoveries about what they truly want to become. Lastly, Parents should be the best supporter of their children and the best source of love and care.
