Being a parent is never easy. Always think about your child first, and consider the impact on your child when making decisions. Here are some useful tips for building a strong, confident, successful child.
First, I do not complain. "My children follow their parents' behavior," said psychologist and consultant Tefani Maeston. If you show yourself complaining when you face difficulties, your child is likely to grow and behave the same. The child learns the resilience through the process of confronting the problem.
In an article in The Inc News, Christina Dumaray advised, "especially when it comes to night-time use of electronic devices." As a result of a sleep quality survey of 530 children aged 3 years in Germany, it was found that children using long-term electronic devices experienced sleep disorders such as insomnia, daytime sleepiness, and sleep anxiety.
"Experts have found that the brains of young children who spend too much time using tablets and smartphones can be permanently altered," he said. Electronic devices especially affect concentration, attention, vocabulary, and social skills development. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, if your child is under 18 months of age, you should not use the screen except during video chat. Between the ages of two and five, you can use an electronic device for about an hour every day. Even if you are 5 years old or older, your time of use should be appropriately limited so that electronic devices do not affect sleep, exercise, and social interaction.
Clinical psychologist Dr. Stephanie O'Leary advises that "failure is beneficial for children." Your child must learn to cope after experiencing failure. Dr. O'Rialli added, "Failure in children provides an experience that can truly connect with their peers." Children learn recovery resilience whenever they fail. A child who is not afraid of failure willingly accepts challenging experiences. Allowing a child to fail is a sign that parents trust their children and evidence that they believe they will be responsible for their own actions.
Finally, do not tell your child that 'anything can happen'. Parents need to remind their children of the reality. "As a result of a survey of 400 youths, the young Americans have shown that they are not interested in what they need to do," he said. Most teenagers wanted to be video game designers, athletes or singers. Wise parents should be able to tell their children that they have more opportunities in health care or construction. It is natural to support your child's dreams. However, you should explain your situation and opportunities to your child and help them make the right choices.
