Right Parenting – this is a phrase that we hear very often these days. Parents are having to face a lot of challenges… Juggling their time between their occupation and their commitment to raising their children right.
There is a very well known saying in our Indian culture… “Maatha, Pithaa, Guru, Deivom“… “Mother, Father, Teacher, God“.
This is the order in which our children are influenced, and the sequence of people whom they learn from.
Parents…as you can see…are on top of the list.
It is, therefore, the responsibility of the parents to teach their children the basics… Good manners, Humility, Obedience, Respect for others, Social etiquette, Basic rules of interactions, etc.
What we tend to overlook is the fact that we are always being watched, and learned from, by our children.
This is why we need to ensure that we, first of all, walk the talk.
Children learn from our example.
If we are rude, impolite, inconsiderate, proud…then our children learn these same characteristics…and it becomes very difficult for us, and for them, as they grow older.
So let’s ensure that we clean up our lives first… So that we can raise children whom we can be proud of! 💪💪💪
