Top 5 Parenting Myths that Can Harm your Child


You must be aware of the certain parenting myths that can be bad for the development of your child. Read on learn more about top 5 parenting myths that can harm your child.

Saritha is excited at the thought that she is pregnant. From the moment the news is out, there were celebrations, parties, sweets, outings and all kinds of delicacies. She is over whelmed with the pampering she started receiving.

Somewhere, she is also little afraid with too many rules people started dictating her. Saritha was also scared with the thoughts that she has to have long days, sleepless nights, diaper changing regimens, feeding bottles, and many more.

Saritha is more worried with the idealistic life style which she is supposed to adopt when she is going to be a mother. Somewhere, too many things at a time and altogether at once, made Saritha to rethink on her motherhood. Parenting myths are really annoying to many. This will not only harm the mother but also the child in the years to come.

When you get to know things from different kinds of people, it is too much to accept. All said and done, parenting is a different stage in an individual’s life. You need to accept it along with your existing responsibilities.  As a parent if you are confused with many kinds of parenting rules and regulations, it can also have an adverse effect on your child.

Let us understand the parenting myths which can harm your child.

1. Be an idealistic parent and shape my child’s personality

The first myth is to be an idealistic parent and be all in your child’s life. Always you should remember that your child is totally a separate entity. It is impossible to plan your child’s life without his or her involvement. A child will always have his or her own view points. As a parent you can never rub your opinions on your child. This is a myth with obsessive mind which can harm your child. Being too overprotective can hamper your child’s development.

2. I only should know my child and my child should be close only with me

As a parent do not plan to rule over your child’s life. It just cannot happen. Life is not to dedicate to any one single person. It is to live for every purpose and happily till your last breathe. Children should be taught to remain independent and they need to be guided as and when required. Knowing your child is important but it is a myth if you want your child to be close only with you. It is a myth which can harm your child’s confidence and self-esteem.

3. I should give the best to my child

Giving best to your child is important. But let us not be always with the same thought and indulge too much in the child’s life. This is disturbing your child and also a pain to the child. It is a myth of a pride which can put your child to stress and agony because your child will always expect and will be longing for the best things in the world.

It will make them dependent and they will not value everything that they get on demand. If in future they do not get the best, they can become more stubborn and aggressive.

4. Should satisfy all your kids needs

Kids can sometimes be unreasonable. So, there is no need to say that all the dreams of a child have to be fulfilled. It is rightly stated that there is sufficiency for a man’s need, not for a man’s greed on this earth. Too much pampering and unlimited freedom and needs of a kid can make him or her spoiled brat. It is a myth of a greed which can harm your child.

5. Should place your kids first and then your marital relation

It is fact that kids are top most priority of parents. But keeping this fact in mind, we also need to justify all our roles in our life. Parenting is one role and we cannot be arrested or controlled with that thought alone. As long as we are managing all our works decently, there is no need to put a hold to anything in our life. For raising happy and healthy children it is essential to have blissful marital life. Happy couples raise well balanced children. Therefore, it is essential to keep spark alive in the marital life too.

Life is a journey. We need to understand that every stage is only a curve in one’s life. We need to pass every stage in life smoothly and reach a different age with dignity. This kind of mind set of parents will help the children to grow-up into well balanced individuals.
