Usher’s Herpes Accuser Holds A Press Conference!
To think of it, we all are guilty of “bad parenting” at one time or other. We have been hooked onto to our phones, or socal media or somewhere else while we should have been paying attention to our kids. Sleep deprivation and the demanding 24*7 job of taking care of a baby can leave most of us exhausted beyond wits – making it hard to focus on the kids. We all make mistakes every now and then, and while there is no such things as “perfect parenting”, there are signs that read out loud that something is not right in the way we are raising our kids. Parenting is a skill which must be practiced diligently – it is one of the most challenging jobs in the world to raise a problem-free child who is a proper balance of morals, values and discipline. Each child is different and so is the parent. The idea of rearing a child differs from parent to parent.
Top 10 Signs Of Bad Parenting
We have often turned our nose upwards when elders say that current generation of parents do not how to raise a child. Let’s see what makes them say this:
No rules, all fun: Are you too carefree as a parent, giving your kids the power to decide everything? In such cases, kids become their own masters, going to bed late, getting up late, doing absolutely everything at their will. Owing to hectic lifestyles and both parents working, no one does the work of disciplining the kids as life is already chaotic. If this is how your kids live their lives, this is what they will do when they visit their aunt or cousin. They simply wouldn’t know how to behave appropriately. Discipline is the only way your kids grow up knowing right and wrong. And parents need to do some real hard work to raise kids who know how to behave properly. There will be times when kids will test the parents by breaking rules, hence parents need to establish and clearly communicate the consequences of breaking those rules
Raising your hands: If you scream or hit your kids, your kids will be afraid of you, detest you and start disliking you. You are ultimately increasing the distance; this form of disciplining backfires in most cases. Kids subject to physical punishment may develop psychological problems during adolescence and even turn aggressive. No matter what your instincts say, yet there is no study that states that there is any positive effect of hitting kids. You need to handle kids sensitively, spanking the child for disciplining is just not the way. Instead, talking it out reasonably with a child might enforce some positive outcome – screaming, hitting, or any other form of verbal or physical violence will simply pave the way for more troubles
Not giving your time: Guilty of being glued to your phone’s screen when your child is demanding you play with her? Got an official call and cannot listen to your child telling you about his day? Stop! Your kids don’t just need food or money from you, they want to speak to you, share their experiences and sometimes need to hear your comforting words. Communication is the only thing that will strengthen your bond, not expensive gifts. The deal should be to be the parents kids want to hug and spend time with, not the ones who are like ATM machines. Kids may inadvertently perform odd behavior to attract parent’s attentions. As Jane Hull perfectly puts it, ‘At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents’
