Teaching Your Child About The Importance of Time

Telling your children about the importance of time is something that probably all parents face at one time or the other. All said and done, as parents or even as grown ups, we too probably are not able to always utilise time in the best possible ways.

The war against time usually begins right in the morning, when you start waking them up for school. From then its a constant battle that goes on the most part of the day.

Learning to adjust your schedule according to time is one of the most important things you need to teach your child as a parent. It is something that will help them lead a disciplined life and help them be more effective with their studies and activities. It will also be good for them in the long run. Adjusting and working within time will help them through their adult years as well.

Helping Your Child Become Self Reliant

One of the biggest debates among parents and various parenting channels has been the confusion about parents learning when to get in and when to back off.

We all know about parents who are always hovering over their kids, deciding their every move, telling them what they should or shouldn't do, setting up rules and routines that have no flexibility, forcing young children to participate and excel in activities they have no interest in, but should purely be a part of as, according to the parent(s), 'it is good for their own development and future.'

We have all seen such parents, such parents do exist. And then again, there are parents who are constantly bullied by their own children, giving in to those instant tears, falling down on their knees, adhering to their child's every whim and fancy.

As a parent, one of your first priority, if you really want to do what is best for your child, is to understand how to help your child become self-reliant. A self-reliant child not only understands situations and surroundings much better than a child who is spoon-fed, but will also be able to take smarter and more mature decisions and be practical and calm in situations that require mental strength.
