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.

If parents ignore the emotions of the child, thinking that it will help him to control, and also teach him to suppress feelings, the child does not sufficiently develop his emotional intelligence.

“You love my brother more than me”

Anna, the mother of two children, says: “Every day after work, I go to the store to buy groceries and necessary things. At home, I begin to spread my purchases. My four-year-old son Nikita likes to watch this lesson. Having seen among the purchases diapers intended for the youngest child, he begins to shout: “You always buy something for Sasha, but nothing for me! It’s not fair!”

If there are two or more children in a family, parents often hear the phrase: “This is dishonest!” This can happen because you read the tales to the youngest child longer, allowed him to sleep longer in the morning, or gave him one cookie more than the older one. Children constantly consider how much sweets you give them and their brothers or sisters. They compare who you love more. Continue reading
