5 Parenting Habits That Make Children Weak and Miserable

Breaking bad parenting habits is a must to raise happy and well-balanced kids. Read on to learn about the 5 parenting habits that make kids weak and miserable.

Sometimes the behaviour of the parents makes kids uncomfortable and insecure. Parents need to understand that they also make mistakes and need to rectify them instantly. There is an age old proverb which says “To err is human, to forgive is divine”. So it is human who do mistakes.

But sometimes children fall prey to some bad habits of their parents that can make their lives miserable. So in order to give them a happy life, parents need to shed off those bad habits. Here is a list of some of them.

1. Arrogance

Arrogance is a very dangerous thing and the reason behind the downfall of humans. It makes people self centred and they forget every other thing around them. They become indifferent to their kids and family. People start giving priorities to themselves only. This affects the kids very much when they find that their parents are neglecting them. They start feeling dejected. So this is a negative trait that parents should shed off immediately.

2. Huge Expectations

Too much expectation from kids can make their lives miserable and wretched. Accept the fact that all kids are not the same. Every child is special in his own way and has his own interests and talents. Try to identify their talents and help them grow in their own way. Stay happy with what your kids are offering to you. Appreciate their endeavours and encourage them to do better in life and life will be easier.

3. Competition

It is a very common nature of some parents to go into competitions in everything that they see, either with their peers or with their relatives to showcase the talents of their kids. This creates a mental stress in kids making their lives miserable. So stop comparing your kids with others and stop going into meaningless competitions. Instead set a benchmark for your kid’s success and start measuring how much she is making improvements, every alternative day.

4. Diet Restrictions

Do not force kids when they do not want to eat. Punishing kids for not eating the food which they do not want to eat is incorrect. They will definitely eat when they are hungry. But you need to ensure that you provide healthy food everyday at regular intervals. Provide them healthy eating option. It is ok to eat junk food once in a while. Do not restrict junk food from child’s diet completely. Set an example in front of your kids by following healthy eating habits. You kid too will develop healthy eating habits by watching you. You cannot expect your kids to eat healthy food if you regularly eat junk food in front of them.

5. Being Over Protective

Being over protective about kids can make kids feel suffocative. They should also be given their due space and privacy. They should also be exposed to the challenges that life poses to them. Only then they can learn the values of life. Exposing them to the hardships and turmoil that life offers, makes them self reliant which is very important in life.

Parents are not going to be there beside their children always, they have to walk alone down the lanes of life which is full of hurdles. In order to overcome these hurdles of life, self dependence is very important, which can be only obtained if they are exposed to risks and challenges. So stop worrying about your kids and let them live life in their own way. But of course monitor them to see that they are on the right track are they are not in any danger.

Parents need to develop healthy parenting habits so that the kids can live freely without feeling insecure in the presence of parents. There are certain Do’s and Don’ts in life for parents too and the parents need to follow the rules invariably.
