Parenting remains one of the most challenging jobs ever. Training children from their infant years to their teenage and adult years is not an easy task. These are some of the mistakes parents shouldn’t make when training their children.
1. Giving in to a child’s every demand
It is not advisable to give in to all your children’s demands. Make them understand that they can't always have everything they ask for.
2. Comparing your children with other children
It is wrong to compare your kids with other children, as it can demoralize the child and lead to low self-esteem or loss of self-confidence.
3. Overworking your children
Leisure is just as important as working. Give your children time to rest, play and take a break from work. You can draw out a timetable that will make it possible for your children to have as much time to work as they can to relax, hang out with friends or go see a movie.
4. Overreacting to situations
Reacting to every situation is a No-No! Avoid beating your children over little matters, they might end up fearing or hating you.
5. Not spending time with them
Some parents hardly spend quality time with their children, probably because they are too busy making money. Spending time with your kids will make your relationship grow stronger. Take them out once in a while or spend some time with them indoors.
