Family & Parenting Guide

Love should win over parenting fright

You would see that most of the parents are quite frightened when their children get into troubled situations or even get into a small problem. It can be very frightening to raise your toddlers into responsible youngsters. But as love always wins, it should win over your fear for your children too. It is understandable that any frightful idea or thought of anything happening to your kids can make your heart go pounding. However, you also need to know that these little men and women need extra care and attention, and most of all, need to be loved as much as possible.

Kids are playful, funny, amazing, loud, insightful and fabulous creatures of God. They need protection from every harsh situation. Parents are generally worried about their whereabouts or anything-negative happening around them. They fear that kids’ surroundings could greatly affect their feelings and thoughts. Thus, their constantly new queries should be carefully handled and dealt with. They should not get negative thoughts polluting their minds as they are sophisticated beings. When anything bad is happening around them, they should surely be made aware of it, but all that needs to be explained in an intellectual manner to them.

Pros and cons of every situation need to be informed to your kids so they have an overall understanding of the situation within a given context. This helps them take their own right decisions when they grow up. Your love and understanding for your kids can turn them wiser and more sympathetic toward you and others. It is natural that you get worries when your kid turns up late from school or gets surrounded by children who are into some bad habits. But, handle such things in a loving and careful manner, rather than being dreadful about your kid falling into the traps of others.

Sometimes, you might have to lie to your kids, but if it is for their benefit or to make them understand something you should make a smiling face and do that without hesitation. Your fear for them should not be passed on to your kids. All parents want their children to feel safe and secure about the environment they stay in, and parents themselves can only create this kind of environment. So, love them and love them more and more if you want your flowers to keep blooming.
