Supporting children’s positive growth and building strong relationships (Personal Doc)
As a parent, your role in guiding and supporting your child’s development is very important. However, sometimes without realizing it, certain actions can make children feel annoyed.
How we communicate, listen and provide support has a crucial role in shaping a child’s personality and relationship with the surrounding environment.
Here are 5 things that should be avoided so that the relationship between parents and children remains harmonious:
1. Lack of Active Listening:
Sometimes, parents are busy with daily routines and can not listen to what their children have to say. Avoid this mistake by paying full attention when talking to your child, so they feel appreciated.
2. Judging Too Quickly:
Judging or assessing children without understanding the context can make them feel not understood. Try to provide support and understand the child’s perspective before making judgments.
3. Giving criticism without discussing solutions:
Criticism can indeed be a way to teach, but without providing positive solutions or direction, children may feel frustrated. Provide constructive feedback and teach how to overcome mistakes.
4. Ignoring Children’s Privacy:
Every child has their privacy needs. Probing too far or ignoring their privacy can create a sense of discomfort. Give children space to develop and respect their privacy boundaries.
5. Comparing with Other Children:
Comparing a child’s achievements or behavior with other children can damage their self-confidence. Focus on your child’s unique strengths and potential, and encourage them to become the best version of themselves.
By avoiding these five mistakes, parents can create an environment that supports their child’s positive growth and build strong relationships.
