 successful education

Every father and mother seeks to raise their children to become respectable and active members of society when they mature, and building a child’s character requires effort on the part of parents, providing unconditional love and a lot of support, and while education may be a difficult and stressful process sometimes, but investing in raising children It gives them the best possible start to their lives.

How do you raise a child?

Studies show that children who show better behaviour were raised by parents who were able to combine warmth, sensitivity and clear behavioural expectations, in addition to avoiding violent methods, neglect, and overprotection. According to the National Science Association, there are four responsibilities that parents must take into account in raising their children:

  • Maintaining children's health and safety.
  • Enhance their emotional well-being.
  • Supporting children intellectually.
  • Instilling social skills.

Tips for raising children

Taking care of children and forming a family while maintaining a balance in personal life is an art that not everyone can master, and some tips can make a difference in the outcome of the education process and make family life smoother and lighter.

Knowing the strengths of children

Children are more willing to correct their inappropriate behaviour when their dignity is preserved, and knowing their strengths enhance their confidence to do whatever they think is difficult.

Fostering and praising children is more effective than punishing

Instead of focusing on children’s weaknesses and inappropriate behaviours, finding a way to bring children to the best they can do and then supporting, strengthening and praising them is the best way to deal with children. When children are encouraged, they acquire skills and talents to compensate and correct any mistake.

Avoid negative reactions such as anger and sarcasm

Negativity in dealing with children's behavioural problems will make things worse, of course, simple suggestions can be used as a reminder to motivate the child to do the required action correctly.

Avoid comparison with peers

Children should feel that they are equal in love and treatment by parents, and if they are compared, this creates competition between children and causes problems.

Education by example

Children imitate their parents in everything, and if a child sees one of his parents doing wrong behaviour, this is tacit permission to do the same behaviour, so parents should discipline themselves to be a good role models for their children.

Building a child's self-confidence

The process of building confidence in children begins very early, in the first years of childhood, children see themselves with the eyes of parents, and are affected by expressions, gestures, and even the simplest words they receive from parents, and therefore the words that parents say and actions they do towards the child affect his self-confidence more than anything else.

Allocate enough time for the children

Spending enough time with the child may be difficult for working parents because they are busy with work and the responsibilities of daily life, but it is a necessary requirement for proper education, as this time doesn't need to belong, waking up early in the morning and spending time with the children before they go to school or Allocating a night a week to talk with children, take walks and engage in activities together improves the relationship between parents and children, supports the child's psyche and makes the process of parenting more effective.

parenting styles

Parents differ in the methods used to raise their children, according to the goals that each educator seeks to achieve, and patterns of education refer to the methods that parents use in raising their children, and there are four basic patterns of education.

the authoritarian style of education

Parents set non-negotiable rules and inflexible expectations for their children. Punishment is frequently used in this pattern when children violate the disciplined rules set by parents, and communication is usually one-way without allowing children to discuss and express opinions.

permissive parenting style

Parents of this type give their children absolute freedom to do what they like without participating in guidance and they stay away from their way either for lack of knowledge or for lack of interest in education and children, and they do not set any expectations for their children, and communication is limited, and for this reason, this type of education does not nourish a personality Children are not given love.

Disciplined parenting style

Parents of this type are logical and nourish the personality of their children, they set clear expectations for their children and create effective communication with them. Self-discipline in children, and teaches them to think for themselves.

Characteristics of a good breeder

Behavioral problems that occur in a child can be remedied and resolved by strengthening the relationship between the educator and the child, and one of the most important steps that the educator can take to improve the relationship between him and his child is to show love and sympathy, and a lot of love does not spoil the child, but the things that are given to the child out of love such as indulgence and reducing Expectations and the granting of material possessions are what do this, just as participating in the material and moral presence and sometimes sacrificing the things that the educator wants to do for the things that the child wants to do makes a remarkable development in the relationship between him and the child, and it is important to set certain rules for the child to follow, if the child does not learn to follow Rules early, he will have great difficulty controlling and directing himself when he grows up, and consistency must be taken into account in the previously established rules and in dealing with the child, as fluctuations in dealing will lead to confusion of the child.
