Avoid Teaching Children Bad Lessons
Avoid Unnecessary Comments
What do you do when a child is sad and cry for any reason? Many parents, grandparents and other adults at home make wrong comments about the child. Sometimes in school or other places also make such bad comments.

Kids learn what they hear from parents and elders. So, when this child finds friends in such a situation, this kid make the same comment to friends, because he/she learned that from the adults.
Instead of saying such wrong words, elders can make the child accept that sadness and crying is a natural human emotion, and not just for babies.
Crying is good because that
Do not make a perfectionist
Some parents want their kids to be perfect in everything. They point out silly mistakes and ask the kids to make it perfect.Mistakes are part of human life and every person make mistakes in the life journey. Click To Tweet
Parents should avoid asking kids to make everything perfect. Parents need to teach their children that mistakes are okay and it can happen with anyone. Otherwise, the children will become a perfectionist.
Make children responsible
Teach children housework which they can do at their age. It is necessary for children to gain responsibility.
But do not treat them as servants or force them to do anything. It would be better for parents to show love and consideration for their children. Appreciation helps to produce Dopamine hormone which is necessary for happiness.

- Teach children to gain knowledge through hard work, but do not wrap up in good grades.
- Parents should become a role model in financial matters. Make them understand the value of money and proper use. Teach them there are many things vital to happiness and well-being, but money can not buy everything required in life.
- Do not punish for everything, especially for honest mistakes. If your child does not get a good grade, do not criticise or show your unhappiness. But realise that your child need help with a tough subject.
- Give them time and the chance to handle work they can do. If you do everything for them, they will rely on everything on others and will not have the knowledge or courage to do things when necessary.

Do not worry about the grade, awards and publicity of your child. Never compare your children with other children. Help them to become good citizens and successful in life. Make your kids to proudly say that their parents are behind their success.
