4. Children come in the first place
One of the 5 errors is this one, too. Parents tend to look after their children too much. It’s good for the evolution, but we should also create a timetable adaptable to children’s needs, such as food, clothes, nursing and others.
Parents nowadays are taking it to another level, subjecting their own obligations and mental health to children, to satisfying all their needs and requests. You can’t give them everything they want, when they want. You can’t also burst out running for everything they ask for. This will take your peace and your health away, it will stress you out, but above all, it will show your children they are the ones that are in control.
Nothing will happen to your child just because you’ve taken some time for yourself (unless there’s an emergency of some kind), neither will anything happen if you say “No.”
5. They use to take advantage of the shortcuts
Parents today often resort to a series of shortcuts to avoid their children getting bored and thus start misbehaving. They only burden them with electronic devices whenever they´re waiting for a doctor’s appointment, boarding a plane, waiting for a bus, or just cooking and cleaning at their homes. You have to teach your children how to be patient, when they should learn how to amuse themselves on their own. They should also learn that food won’t be ready and served whenever they want it to be. Above all, you should teach your children they need to help in the kitchen, but not with actual cooking, but with doing the dishes.
This will help them become stronger. Try not to make these 5 errors and be a better parent for your children!
