The psychological responsibility of parenting

As parents, we erroneously believe that the buck stops at providing shelter, clothes, food and a good education for our children. In some cases, we take it a bit further by grounding them in our religions. However, these things are not all that we should do as parents.
Children are gifts who are, more or less, solely dependent on you for their identity. More often than not, who children grow up to be is a direct reflection of the kind of parenting they got.
As you can imagine, it is not merely the clothes, food or schools you provide for your children that shape them. The way you talk to and relate with them generally goes a long way in determining who they become. There is a psychological aspect of parenting that too many of us ignore.
Ideally, it is in the home that children get a true sense of how they are, all they can become through an awareness of their self-worth, which is your duty to instill in them. You see, when they go out into the world, it is their understanding of themselves that helps them decide what to internalize and what to discard.
It is unfortunate that too many of us would rather ignore this hugely important part of parenting in favor of the tangibles. I am not saying those tangible parts are not essential, but even if a high level of self-esteem is all you can give your children then you have done them a world of good.
From today, be mindful of the way you address your children. Correct them in love. Encourage them and build their sense of self-worth in any way you can. Recognize them as individuals deserving of your respect and when they go out into the world, they will demand nothing less.

Trying to raise children at this moment in mind is a very difficult task but it can be done with utmost sense of care and hardwork. Parents need to build the right foundation for the family which will help everyone to be happy.
