5 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don't Do




Parenting is a tough job. However parents are human too and they too have to follow the right style of parenting. Here are 5 things mentally strong parents don’t do.


Don’t you want your kid to turn out to be amazing? As a parent, you know that it is important to adopt the right method of parenting.  Being mentally tough is important so your kid will also turn out the way you are. Here are 5 things that mentally strong parents don’t do so that that children grow-up into well balanced individuals.


Don’t Encourage Self- Centredness

A lot of kids come home from school and talk about their activities during the day. Teach your kid that helping others is a good thing and they should not be self-centred. They should talk about their achievements however be careful that your kid does not turn out to be egoistic or too proud. Hence, focus on your child’s progress but ensure that she doesn’t only think about herself all the time. Mentally strong parents are proud of their children however they don’t usually like their children to feel that the world belongs to them and they can do whatever they want.


Don’t Discourage Improvement

No matter what stage of life we are at, there is always scope for improvement. The good child knows that someone or the other will always be better than her. Teach your child to accept success and defeat however it comes. A mentally strong parent is not afraid of failure hence the same qualities should develop in the child. Teach your child that whatever the teacher says or does is only for her improvement. A teacher will usually not hurt a child or say something negative on purpose. Hence, when the teacher says something we should learn to accept it as something positive only.


Don’t Expect Perfection

As humans, nobody is perfect and a mentally strong parent knows that very well. You can’t raise your child to be like a robot or machine which is constantly following every command of those around. Teach your child to be a little independent right from a small age and don’t get angry when they do something which they aren’t supposed to. We all learn from our mistakes. One can’t expect perfection from kids. Your child should learn to take interest in all activities however don’t always think that they will be on top. They may not always meet your expectations so be prepared to accept that.


Never Discourage Self-Defence

Self defence is the best kind of defence. Your child should learn to stand up for herself in school. Put your foot down when it comes to bullying and teach your child that she should defend herself without violence and always stand up for what is right. Encourage them to stay away from kids who negatively influence them and mingle more with positive children who understand her background. Never encourage your child to be like a bully. She should understand that not everybody will like her so it is best to stay alert and aware at the same time.


Don’t Encourage Aggressiveness

Some people falsely think that only aggressive or pushy children make it big in life. Some kids are extremely competitive just like their parents which can lead to inferiority complex. Teach your child that being aggressive doesn’t mean one is strong. Showing mental strength is more important than aggression or violence. A simple and non-aggressive child is generally liked by all. Don’t go out of the way to put down other parents or kids. Inner strength and values are much more important than false displays of bravery.

All in all, a mentally strong parent is one who understands life and its complexities. It’s not easy bringing up children in today’s world. They are exposed to a lot of stuff in media and everywhere. Hence, it’s important to stay grounded and stay strong by looking at the larger picture. In the long run, a mentally strong parent can do wonders in her child’s life.
