Your Fledgling Adult

The child learns to understand that she is an individual in her own right. She expands her horizons and shows a great degree of maturity through simple gestures.

Developing her individuality

The child slowly begins to understand that she is an individual in her own right, as opposed to being an extension of you. She will expand her horizons, realizing that she is not the focal point of the universe. The development of a child’s individuality does not happen overnight. Every child will take her own time in discovering her individuality.

Signs of early maturity

She will learn to put others first, displaying spontaneous acts of generosity and unselfishness. She will become more sensitive to the feelings of others, exhibiting sympathy and concern. She will move on from mere imitation to learning through "identification." She will understand the meaning of putting herself in the other person's shoes.

What can parents do?

Parents can play a major role in helping children discover their individuality. School teachers and friends also play a role in helping children develop their individuality to a certain extent. Here is what parents can do to help the transformation of a child into an individual.

Be a good role model

Children learn everything from their parents. Therefore, it is a must to be a good role model for them. During their growth years, their grasping power is also very good. They are very good observers so they can immediately grasp what they see and what they hear. So, parents should act wisely and use their words wisely in front of their children.

Inculcate good manners

It is very important to inculcate good manners in children. Good manners are very important aspect of one’s personality. Children with good manners are appreciated everywhere at the same time good manners are very important to be a well balanced individual. When they recognise their individuality they must be aware of manners that are followed while talking, eating and doing other things in day-to-day life.

Cultivate discipline

It is very important to help children to imbibe discipline. Discipline is very important for walking the path of success. Children should learn to follow discipline in each and every aspect of life in order to live life as a successful and happy individual.

Teach good values

Teaching good values is equally important. Inculcating values in children is very important for shaping their character. Values that they will learn in their childhood will also play an important role in helping children walk the path of success. During the testing times, values can help children take right decision. How they act in a particular situation will be determined by their beliefs and values that they learn in their childhood. They can have clear goals if they follow right values in life.

Help them differentiate between right and wrong

It is extremely important to help children differentiate between right and wrong. However, only preaching is not enough, you must set right examples for them in order to help them understand what is right and what is wrong. Understanding the difference between right and wrong will help them make proper choices in life.

Parents should make sure that they follow the above mentioned parenting tips for helping children transform into a well-balanced adult. Above all, parental involvement in the life of children is extremely crucial. While raising children, spending time with them and knowing what is going on in their life should be given a top priority. Remember that children are just like clay and giving them right shape is completely in the hands of parents and it is their prime responsibility as well.

my parenting,
its been a long time since i accessed your site. it is so good to be a subscriber of your website. as of now, i am dealing with a problem that is common in most of the kids. i am a parent of a three and a half year old daughter. her name is tanishi(bulbul). she is a brilliant kid. if i say she is well versed in most of the rhymes, can operate computer on her own(from booting to shut it down), sounds made by various kinds of animals, name of the months, name of the weekdays, her observation is also profound , extracting the exact medicine to be given to her grandmother, etc. now these are the traits that are common in any toddler that we can come in contact with (well, its all due to the exposure that they have). we try to relate her to everything that the children of her age should know. in spite of everything she is a very shy child- shy to the extent of being timid. she is very jovial in the homely atmosphere, even outgoing, but when it comes to interacting with a stranger or any newcomer she becomes very reticent. how can we as her parents help her overcome this timid ness? is it reflective of any flaw in the mannerism that we are bringing her up in? she chews her nails a lot. how can i help her in abandoning this habit? please let me know your views regarding my concerns.
thank you,

although british, i live in the usa. very interesting web site. i do have a comment though re: mastubation. my son is estranged from his daughter's mother. they do however share parenting. according to her mother, my grand-daughter started mastubating (my son and i had never seen her do this). the child's mother immediately got in touch with cps (child protective services) and my son did not see his daughter for over three months. incidentally, the charges were dismissed as unfounded.

it's good to see that your country realizes when a child mastubates, it doesn't automatically mean that the child has been molested.

i sign this, an angry grandmother.
