The children of today are under a myth that whatever they do is correct and they need not think twice before taking any step. They have developed this attitude due to wrong learning from the television and Hollywood movies. Sometimes even the peers and friends give a wrong guidance. It is thus the duty of the parents to guide their children to the right path. Parents need to be really understanding and patient in such a case. If they loose their patience and shout back on their children it would lead to serious problems like the child becoming really aggressive and irritated.
There are many situations and problems that your child faces for the first time in life. He has not faced such things earlier. The parent thus should prepare the child well in advance for such a situation. Situations can be as small as choosing what to wear to as big as choosing the right career path or may be the life partner. If the child makes the right choice then the child remains happy life long but a wrong decision can make a person’s life a living hell. Thus one should think well before taking a decision. Certain decisions affect the whole family. Thus teach your child well in advance.
a) Choose the correct kind of food: Many people are really very fond of food. What should one eat and what not is really a difficult question. One should teach their children the right way to eat. The children should be taught that have healthy and nutritious food. Girls especially should be told the problems faced when one goes for crash dieting. Thus it is very important to eat the right way so as to face the various challenges one may face in life.
b) Teach them what and when to speak: The children should be taught what and when to speak. Words are something that can destroy or build healthy relationships. Teach them to speak politely to everyone around. Teach them to respect everyone and be nice to everyone they talk to.
c) Choose the right career: Career is something which may rule a person’s life. If a person selects a career path which matches the personality of the person then the person excels a lot in that stream. Thus teach them and help them choose the right occupation for themselves.
d) Teach them to choose the right friends: Friends influence a person’s personality completely. A person can get completely destroyed in a bad company. Teach them to choose the right kind of friends. Choose friends with whom one can share their joy and happiness. Choose motivating friends rather than degrading ones.
e) Teach your child to choose the right kind of life partner: A life partner is one that remains with a person throughout his life time. A good life partner can make your life heaven where as a bad one can ruin one’s life completely. Thus teach your child to choose a life partner who could understand him well, be with him through all thick and thin.
