PARENTING : A parent’s love is a child’s destiny

IT is so rewarding for parents to see children grow up to be morally upright people who are considerate of others. But for you to achieve such an outcome, a lot depends on the initiative of any parent’s exemplary role. Set good examples for instance being a companion and a teacher. Yes, we believe all children are born with the basic capacity to act morally, but still, parents must progressively impart moral values onto their children as they mature.

The role of a parent in a child’s early years cannot be underestimated. These experiences later in life coupled with peer influence compliment a child’s early growth.

Children need to be taught how to cope with their feelings in a mature way. When they receive such assistance, they are generally better prepared to work well with others.

Child training from infancy is hard work. For you to be successful, especially for new parents, you only need to seek wisdom from others with more experience.

It you are ready following this definite course of action, will get the job done.

Be generous in expressing love to your child. All children are like young plants that develop and thrive when nurtured with regular loving and attention.

Parents who shower their kids with verbal and physical expressions of love will nurture their children’s mental and emotional growth.

The affection you show, the bedtime stories you read, and even the games you play are crucial elements of your child’s development.

If a child is learning to crawl, your encouragement and response is very important. Your love and attention is very much needed at this stage because spending time with your child creates a strong bond and promotes their communication skills.

Quality time parents spend with their kids is much more important than the fancy toys that they give them.

Biblically Proverbs (22:6) clearly states that, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Parents surely play an integral role in child training.

We must nurture our children. It is one of the important things we can do to help them. A parent’s love and caring determines how a child grows up and how they will eventually parent.

The early years especially, the first three years is the doorway to forever; this is when personality traits develop in humans.

Parenting is learned in childhood and repeated when children become parents. The experiences children go through have a significant impact on the attitudes, skills and parenting practices they will use on their own children.

A parent’s love is a child’s destiny. It is the legacy we give them. Love the for who they are.
