Why Avoid Wrong Parenting practices

Parenting is never an easy job rather parents have to keep up to their commitments throughout their lives. How parents deal with their children affect the personality development of the children so parents must be cautious enough to follow the right parenting practice for their children. Find here the top 10 wrong parenting practices to be avoided by the responsible parents.

Wrong Parenting Practices to be Avoided

Here are top 10 wrong parenting practices which you should always avoid.

Comparing Children

Parents are responsible to introduce sibling rivalry among their children. The biggest mistake they do is to compare one child with the other and as a result feeling of jealousy gets ignited. If parents keep on doing this kind of comparison then the under performer child is likely to lose his or her self confidence.

Over Protection

Most of the parents have a tendency to over protect their children. This prevents the children from learning the skills of problem solving and they are unable to face any kind of adverse situation later in their lives.

Neglecting the Child

Some parents do not give required attention to their children and these children remain neglected as parents are the best well-wishers for any child. Neglecting the children continuously make the children disinterested about the surroundings and society. Such children hardly learn to care about welfare of others.

Disrespecting the Child

Some parents do not consider that even a small kid wants to prove his or her identity. Some parents insult kids in front of others and even scold their children very badly in public. Such children have a feeling of inferiority complex and have unhealthy childhood.

Fighting in Front of Children

Violence at home is the major reason why children become prone to doing crimes. Some moms and dads fight with each other very violently in front of their children. Studies have revealed that children who grow up observing violence at home tend to bully others.

More Attention to the Youngest Kid

At times parents find it difficult to give equal attention to their kids and the youngest one is likely to get the most attention from the parents. This develops inferiority complex in other children in the family.

Parents are the Authority

Children must be given chance to speak out and express their views in different matters. Authoritarian parenting never allows the child to get his or her self confidence developed and this lead to other problems in life.

Losing Control

Parents must always keep cool so that no adverse effect is caused to the emotion of their children. Parents must learn to control their own emotions in front of their children and must not show their anger, anxiety and fear to the children.

Avoiding Assessment of Parenting Skills

Most parents are under the impression that they do not require any proper parenting classes or education to raise their children. This makes them unaware about the problems of children and they fail to give their children healthy and happy childhood.

When the parents avoid doing the above mentioned mistakes, they will surely be able to provide a healthy childhood for their children.
