How to stay informed about child affairs: tips for parents

As children grow up, parents become more and more interested in what they do and where they go. However, children, growing up, are becoming more and more secretive. Sometimes it’s good, but sometimes it can be a problem for both parents and the child himself.

Parents should exercise great caution when asking a child questions and being interested in his activities, hobbies or social circle. If a child feels hostility on the part of his parents or the inability to openly share his thoughts with them, he may become secretive. To stay informed about the events in the life of the child, you should follow certain recommendations. Let’s consider them in more detail.

Be friendly with your child. Better to be his friend than an outsider. The closer the emotional connection between you, the more you will know about what is happening in his life. You do not have to do what the child does. Better look from the side, how he overcomes difficulties. There are many different aspects in a child’s life that you might know and understand better if you would become a child’s friend and not just a parent.
Encouragement is the best way to let your child express their feelings. Support the child in the desire to tell you about his affairs and hobbies, to share thoughts and feelings with you. If you establish a confidential communication with your child, he will come to you when he has problems or just a bad day. Thus, the child will gradually learn to stand up for himself when faced with the outside world.
Parents should monitor how the child behaves. Some parents are so busy with their affairs that they pay too little attention to their child. Therefore, you need to be attentive to the behavior of the child in order to be able to notice something suspicious in time and take the necessary measures.
Invite your child’s friends home to find out who he is talking to. By doing this, you can also find out your child’s taste for certain things. By inviting your child’s friends home, you will be able to communicate with them and understand who he chooses to be his friend.
Talk to your child’s school teachers. Go to parent-teacher meetings at school and talk with teachers to understand how your child is learning. It will also help you understand your child’s interests. If a child does not study well, perhaps he is interested in some other activity, which he does not have the opportunity to devote time to.
Look at things from the perspective of a child, not an adult. Sometimes a child behaves in one way or another, and you cannot understand the reason for this. When you put yourself in the place of the child, the reasons will become more clear to you.
Usually children do what is interesting to them, without devoting their parents to their classes and without showing off the subject of their interest. The reason for this behavior is that parents have little contact with the child, so it can be difficult for him to express his emotions. Sometimes it is not easy for parents to find a common language with their child. But it’s worth the effort and a positive attitude towards this prospect – and it will not be so difficult to do it.
