When a boy
child arrives, the general tendency is that the parents do not have to
worry a lot for the upbringing of the child. This is not true because you need
to bring up any child by giving him proper love and care. At the same time you
need to make him learn discipline and values that are essential for a better
life. People think that the worries and anxieties are only associated with a
girl child. However, though the issues might be different, the responsibility
remains the same regardless of whether your child is a boy or a girl.
When your son is growing you need to understand his needs
and requirements. You need to give him the right environment, support his
interests and at the same time persuade him to concentrate on his studies and
other relevant matters too. Boys are mostly hyperactive and so they need to be
controlled many times. Keep a close watch on the friends he meets, his behaviour,
internet activities and so on. It is your responsibility to bring up an independent,
righteous and responsible person.
Tips for Raising a
Have a quick look at the some tips on raising
a boy child.
- Activities – Keep an eye on all
his activities. Do not let him do whatever he likes or go out at odd hours
simply because he is a boy. Watch out his behaviour and do not accept
wrong behaviour even if it is something negligible. It might turn out big
if neglected at this moment.
- Friends – You should know about
circle and the type of boys and girls that are in the group. It is quite
natural that the boys will spend more time with their friends as compared
to girls. However, you need to watch out everything and keep a trace of
his time for coming back home especially when he is a teenager..
Do not call any of his friends bad. Explain things that are right and
wrong and let him decide whether that particular friend is right for him
- Listen to Your Son – Try to
communicate with your son daily. This will help you have the daily
activity details and this in turn will keep you assured and connected with
your son. Listen to the entire day’s work and activities of your son. This
will also strengthen the bonding between you two.
- Family of Friends – Get an idea
about the family background of his friends. You can also make family
friends if you invite some of them on certain occasion. If you find that
any of the friend’s family background is not right for the growth of your
child, try to convince your child and explain things to him. For example
if any person in the family is a heavy drinker, it will have impact on
your child’s mind too.
- Sexual Offences – You have to be
careful about all this as well. Even small boys are not safe nowadays. It
can be anyone anywhere. You have to be careful and train and educate your son
about how to save himself from any such incident. It is not that you have
to save your child from adults; it can be the boys and girls of the same
Whether you have a son or daughter, children are after all
children. They are innocent and susceptible. They need proper care and right
direction to grow. We have to protect them and prepare them to face different
types of dangers.
