Here are tips that Moms and Dads could do to nurture your children’s character.
Every Child is Unique
Every individual is unique. You don’t believe it? No individual that has exactly the same personality and character, even identical twins. Let the children be themselves. Do not force them to be like other people or compare them with other individuals. They must have their own unique and different sides, these are the two things that Moms and Dads should recognize, discover, and develop.
Playing is Learning
The most effective way for children to learn is by playing. Playing has an important role in children’s physical, mental, cognitive and emotional development. Playing teaches the children how to work in groups, resolve conflicts, improve imagination, make decisions, and try different roles. By playing, children learn how to be independent, to be creative, to be a leader, and to explore.
Don’t Label Them
Without knowing, we often give the children a nickname, such as “Fatty” or “Grumpy”. Nickname or labeling can forcibly shape their character, when they actually can grow better if they don’t get a certain label. So, you better avoid labeling your children, Moms.
Be Their Role Model, not Lecturer
Who else is the children’s role model if not Moms and Dads? Give them examples of good values that they can look up to. Avoid lecturing them and shaping them to be whom you want. Let them explore but remain accountable.
Parenting is the key to shape the children’s character. Therefore, parents play the most important role regarding this. Recognize, discover, and nurture your children’s character so they grow smart and excellent.
