Designing the Base

From the future perspective, we need a strong base to achieve the desired goals. My mother used to say when I was small “start making your hair when they are small”. I lately understood the meaning behind this statement when I became an adult where my childhood discipline helped me perform better in my education. The meaning is simple; start shaping when it is small, then it will keep growing in the shape you desired.

Same goes with the nation. It is not just those international borders marked on the land; it’s about the people who make those boundaries worthy and important. I’m talking about the younger generation of our nation that will come forward later when they will be able to make decisions as per their needs. It is best to guide your youngest generation at the point where they could become the best in their future that could take the nation long way off.

Nurturing the thoughts

Meeting your child’s physical needs (food, shelter, and clothing) is a fairly simple matter. Trying to meet your child’s emotional needs can be more difficult. While there are many parenting styles, most experts agree on some general guidelines for nurturing a child’s emotional health and laying the foundation for emotionally healthy adulthood. To make it simple below mentioned points could be helpful:

• Be aware of the stages of your baby’s development so that you don’t expect too much or too little from your baby.

• Encourage your child to express his feelings; he respects those feelings. Let your child know that everyone experiences pain, fear, anger and anxiety. He tries to know the origin of these feelings. Help your child positively express anger, without resorting to violence.

• Promote mutual respect and trust. Keep your voice low, even when you disagree. Keep communication channels open.

• Listen to your child. Use words and examples that your child can understand. Encourage questions. Providing comfort and safety. To be honest. Focus on the positives. Express your willingness to talk about any topic.

• Nurture your child’s talents and accept limits. Set goals based on the child’s abilities and interests, not someone else’s expectations. Celebrate successes. Do not compare your child’s abilities with those of other children; appreciate your child’s uniqueness. Spend time with your child regularly.

• Build your child’s independence and self-esteem. Help your child cope with the ups and downs of life. Show confidence in your child’s ability to handle problems and cope with new experiences.

• Discipline constructively, fairly and consistently. Use discipline as a form of teaching, not as physical punishment. All children and families are different; find out what works for your child. Show approval for positive behaviours. Help your child learn from their mistakes.

• Teach the value of apology, cooperation, patience, forgiveness, and consideration for others. Don’t expect to be perfect; raising children is hard work.
