An upbringing emotinaly strong and stable child is not an easy job. Every parent wants to do what is best for the child but sometimes trying too hard to help the child they make mistakes.
Parents can overprotect the child, because they are afraid that something bad will happen. They want their children to be safe but what they don’t know is that by overprotecting the children, they don’t do them favor but quite the opposite.
In old times kids were stronger mentally and physically, the question is why? In my opinion, children in the past were given more responsibilities and tasks to do. These responsibilities and tasks were given to them from a young age. This way the individual leant from his fist years to be disciplined and hardworking.
Like I said, children used to learn from a young age that they need to work hard and be responsible. This was the only way they could survive. This made the children more disciplined and more responsible.
Today’s younger generations are different. This is due to the new ages, the new technology and the better and easier life. This better and easier life is not a bad thing. This means that the human civilization is having an enormous progress.
On the other hand, this better life conditions and the new era is making our younger generations less disciplined and less hard working. Of course there are exceptions, but mostly today’s kids have better life conditions than their parents and grandparents and that is making them not work. They don’t have obligations and responsibilities like they used to.
Today’s kids are used to getting almost everything that they want from a young age. When they gown up and get faced with the real world that is when the problems begin.
This is why, you should do your kids a favor and teach them discipline and responsibility from a young age. Do not make all of their wishes come true. Moreover, do not spoil, because they will grow up in a mentally weak and unstable person.
Of course, this does not mean that they should be working all the time, they should also play and live their childhood, but not get what they want always.
They should be teach that only hard work and discipline will get them what they want and not their parents. Give them time to play, but don’t be afraid to give the responsibilities too. This will create a strong and responsible individual with discipline for hard work.
