Parenting holds both modernism and traditionalism at its core.

Give them Space

Just like every relationship, in the relationship between children and parents there should be respect for each other's space. There should not be congestion, clash of friction in the ideas and opinions of the two generations. Giving them space will give them a chance to rethink their decisions, their likings and their dislikings. If your child doesn't like certain things to eat, leave them on their own for some time, do not force them to eat. Keep the food aside and let them eat it whenever they like. Let them decide when they want to eat.


Set examples

Do not force a child to follow things. Do not push your habits into the child. Set an example before them. Make it so exemplary that the child would love to pick it up as a habit. Children are like sponges, they pick up the habits from observing their parents. So do not do anything that you do not want your child to pick up as a habit.

If you want your child to study in the evening, you also have to pick up a book and read at that time.

Children do not need heroes outside homes; they absorb a lot from their parents. They do not do what their parents ask them to do, they do what they see their parents doing.


Introduce children to the idea of sharing

Teaching the idea of sharing money, kindness, love and hope to kids is very much essential. This indirectly teaches them equality and inclusivity.


Do not focus on your children only

While parenting needs a great deal of attention, putting the prime focus on the child will suppress the ability of the child to notice his or her own talents.

Parents not to focus on children all the time. "Don’t pester your child to excel at everything aka swimming, piano, cricket, art etc. Let them ponder, let them think, give them free time, let them blossom at their own pace. Lead by example, if you want them to read, switch off your TV or phone and sit down to read yourself. Kids learn much more by example than by sermon,”.


Allow them to take small decisions

Giving kids a chance to take small decisions will not only help them understand the situation better it will also expose them to pros and cons of that particular situation.

If a child is not convinced with your decision, give them options and allow them to choose from it.
