“ Parenting is a sanctified journey of bearing , rearing and cultivating a soul bestowed by the almighty to his guardians “ . A soul which has to be nurtured with unconditional love , faith, abundance , patience , harmony, good education and acceptance. Often parents are inundated with a very common question about the best parenting methods but I always say, parenting is not based on methodologies moreover it is an art, the way you paint your canvas the more alluring it turn out to be . But mother and father have a distinct role to play in upbringing of a child .
“ Mother ” should always play a role of a “guru” who always enlightens others by showing a ray of hope. As an infant grows in the bosom of his mother’s warmth, he passes various stages of development which yields his cognitive, social, emotional , physical and spiritual growth. The formative years crop multiple questions in the impressionable mind of the young child and it is the duty of the mother to clear his false line of thinking which in turn purifies his mind . By doing this she imperceptibly reorganize the pattern of thinking for the child and act as a catalyst .
“Father” brings unique contributions to the job of parenting a child that no one else can replicate. Father can cultivate qualities like tolerance , obligation , bravery , friendship , humanity , independence , truthfulness, which lays the foundation of homogeneous adulthood.
To sum up a golden rule for all the parents :
Treat a child like a king upto five years of age because he is not self dependent and lacking in his judgement skills. These exploratory years must be filled with unconditional love and availability of the parent round the clock for his child. The next ten years should be the educational years of your child where you instilled moral values , appropriate social behavior, and basic life skills rather than focusing on his academic skills only because this is the period when you are turning a child into a being with his unique identity and personality by giving him the values of life as an incalculable gift . And by the fifteenth year , make him your best friend by blooming trust , understanding , effective communication and strong interpersonal relationship to win the challenges of parenting. This is the crucial stage of growing up when a child is turning into a teenager dealing with all the changes in his internal and external world . This phase requires a uniform monitoring and parents must act as a shell to protect their teenagers from the negative emotions and toxic thoughts.
Parenting is loving your children unconditionally and helping in their self actualization.
