It is in the heart where the best parenting comes from. There is no time to be lazy in parenting and in this task that you have been given, you need to be keen and observant. So, if this is the case, why do parents need to use books and guides to parenting? Many parents do not trust themselves. Our own parents did not use books or guides to train us in the proper way; their resources were mostly advice from their parents, aunts, and uncles.
The sad reality is that despite the numerous books on parenting out on the market today, you can still find a lot of children turning out badly in life. There are some who really don’t care but there are others also who do not want to disappoint their children and give them whatever they want. Limits are not known by their children. There are many parents that do not teach anything to their children in the home about right and wrong behavior. If you encourage your children to strive to attain their ambitions in life, you also need to teach them that there is proper behavior that they should exhibit in public that they should always observe.
Your children will learn from whatever you teach them if you are serious enough to teach them and lead them from the heart. The child will have an educated conscience which will direct him to choose right from wrong. If parents are consistent with their parenting, then the child’s conscience will develop naturally. If a parent is not involved and just manages to be there but does not seem to care, then the child gets this idea that their parents don’t care whether they are at home or not. This way, children are not guided into the correct direction. There are no limits set for the child and that is a disadvantage for the parents. The consciences of children who are allowed to do what they want will not be bothered even if they are already doing wrong.
The ruthless ambition in children is developed this way. Although these children can aspire for a future goal, achieving these goals at whatever cost is not good. If a child is not taught when young, she will not know if she is already doing something wrong because she will not know that there is a proper way.
Children should be given attention by their parents. It is important to look for help from an outside source, if you find it difficult to parent your child. You will find many organizations or companies that help with parenting. You need to be serious as a parent so that you children will grow up in a proper manner.
