Do You Really Understand Your Children?
People be like, “I really understand what my children need. And this is why I get some things for children even before they ask.” Well, if this is what you call understanding your children then I am sorry but you do not understand your children.
In fact, at a young age, even children do not know what they really need. They are all dependent on their parents or guardians for their needs. They may feel that they need something and they may demand the thing persistently, but the parents should have an idea if their kids actually need something and it should be provided to them only then.
Nowadays, many adults have complaints about their parents. They say that their parents did not stop them when they were young and were doing or demanding something wrong. And this is the reason that when these kids grew up, they actually did not understand the importance of things in life.
And this is very true. When you offer your kids whatever they demand, they take life very easy. They do not understand the importance of what they get in their life and how hard have the parents worked to achieve that.
Well, this is not something that you can teach your children in words. Rather, when you teach these things using actions, they turn out much better, and therefore, it is important to understand your kids and make them understand the importance of things that they get in their life.
Maybe you stay with your kids the entire day and they keep talking to you. But then, do you have an idea what they do when they stay in their room and the room is shut? You should definitely have an idea about this because if your kids face some issues and are not able to tell you about this, let’s get this straight, you have hardly any bond with your children.
So understanding children does not mean offering them everything that they demand. In fact, understanding them means you understand what they actually need in life so that they understand its value and do not blame you in the future if they face any issues.
