Tips to help your children blossom
Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev of Isha Foundation says while it is true that there is no single definition or correct method of good parenting, a few parenting tips could go a long way in ensuring the happiness of your child.
Here are a few guidelines:
Recognise the privilege: It is a privilege that this child has come through you and arrived in your house. Children are not your property; they do not belong to you. Just see how to enjoy, nurture, and support them. Don’t try to make them an investment for your future.
Let them be: Let them become whatever they have to become. Don’t try to mould them according to your understanding of life. Your child need not do what you did in your life.
Give them true love: People misunderstand that loving their children is to cater to whatever they ask for. If you get them everything they ask for, it is stupidity, isn’t it? When you truly love someone, you are willing to be unpopular and still do what is best for them.
Don’t rush them into growing up: When he is a child and behaves like one, it’s wonderful. When he becomes an adult and behaves like a child, that’s bad. There is no hurry for a child to become an adult.
