10 Signs of Bad Parenting

Parenting is one of the toughest jobs in the world and there are no hard and fast rules for apt parenting. Read on to know about the signs of bad parenting so that if any or most of them are shown by you, you can check them on time.

Parenting is, in other words, on the job training. Since no child is same, no two parents should follow similar rules and trend. However, all parents ultimately want their children to be responsible and successful individuals.

Before things go out of control, you should analyse whether the signs you show are of good parenting or bad parenting.

1. Setting No Rules

If there are no rules levied, kids become masters of their own will. Going to bed late, getting up late, not studying properly, watching television, playing video games often and many more are the results.

Discipline is the only way to help your child grow up knowing what is right and what is wrong.

2. Neglect

One of the most significant sign of bad parenting is if parents are ignoring a child completely and consistently.

Parents need to nurture their children and for this they need to spend time with them on regular basis.

3. Overprotection

Parents who are overprotective have to face rebellious teenagers. It is possible they damage themselves in the process just because it is against their parents’ will.

Let your child explore things according to his or her age. Make sure there is no danger in doing so or explain the consequences beforehand.

4. Emotional Abuse

Many parents do not know that emotional abuse stays for lifetime in one’s mind. This consists of manipulation, lying to and insulting the child.

5. Physical Abuse

This is the worst thing and the obvious sign of bad parenting.

Remember, no one needs physical abuse. If you are not able to control yourself, it is you who needs help.

6. Giving-in to Kids’ Demands

Kids know how to negotiate very early especially because of such parents. Initially it does not seem so problematic, but as soon as your child enters teenage, you will have to face constant battles.

If you give-in to pressure from your child, your role as parent gets over. You need to guide your child to help him or her become responsible adult and have sound decision making skills.

7. Doing Everything for Kids

Right from the time your child is an infant, you do things for your child. This turns into a habit and parents continue doing things for their sons and daughters.

Let your children help you in household chores suiting their age. Chores are not punishments. They give children sense of belonging and worth.

8. Favouritism or Partiality

Both are same, if you favour one of your children and neglect others, it affects their mind and entire life. It damages your child’s self-esteem.

Some parents do this often unknowingly. It is time to realize.

9. Spoiling

Fulfilling your child’s every wish every time is spoiling him or her. This will make them uncontrolled and when they grow up, living with them would be terrible.

10. Lack of Trust

It is common trend for others to complain about children. If you punish your child without listening to him or her, you are showing complete distrust. This will result in hiding things from you.

Parenting is not a job. It is a commitment made for lifetime. Most of the parents are working and with their hectic lifestyle and the scrummage between professional and personal life make them avoid disciplining their kids. Raising kids along with managing plenty of your work in and out, there are certain parenting styles that become your habit. If any of the signs of bad parenting are shown by you, knowingly or unknowingly, it is never too late to check them.
