Balancing out what you teach your kids

Being a parent is the most serious job here is on earth. The life of another being is entrusted to you and to a large extent, you can make or mar that being’s life.

Sometimes, you are just not sure how best to impart certain values on your children without compromising on their individuality. The perfect example of this is a woman who shared a video on Facebook that she teaches her son that he does not have to share his toys.

Sharing is a fundamental lesson we teach our children but there was a woman who didn’t think the same. Her excuse? She said once she took her son to a park and the moment they arrived, a group of boys, bigger than her son, approached the boy and asked to play with his toy. He had brought it to play with someone else and so the little boy was confused and also uncomfortable with the way the boys swarmed him.

She said she encouraged her son to say ‘No’ because he had a right to decide whom to share with. She added that in such a scenario, the person with the impolite behaviour is the stranger that insists on taking what isn’t his despite the obvious discomfort of the owner. Do you agree with her?

Sharing is an obvious value to teach your children but it should be balanced. Your child should have a mind of his own. He should share because he wants to rather than allow himself to be bullied into what he doesn’t want to do.

This can be applied to other life lessons. Empower your children by teaching them why they should do stuff. Don’t just enforce it on them. Once they understand the principle behind it, the lesson stays with them better. That’s how you balance out parenting.

Parents need to teach their children the good and bad effects of an action. This is important because each child has his/her individual perception of matters. It is best if they know the consequences of an action and rewards of a good deed.
