What 9 in 10 parents don’t know about raising children...
You may be aware that 75% of your child’s brain mass is developed after birth–and that the first 6 years of your child’s life is their golden window for learning. In this time, their brains are like sponges, absorbing information that will stick with them for a lifetime.
Unfortunately most parents are unaware of this fact, and resort to a ‘cause and effect’ parenting style. If a child is a messy eater, take their cutlery away and spoon feed them. If they scribble on the wall, confiscate their crayons. If they get in trouble at school, ground them...
Do you get upset and angry when your kids make mistakes or fail?
Do you acknowlede your children primarily for what they do or don't do?
Do you tell your children not to cry or that it is not okay to show anger?
How would you handle this scenario?
It’s been a rough day. You left your child at home with the babysitter so you could run errands. Traffic was ridiculous. You spent 3 hours at the mall looking for the right shower curtain rings. Somebody cut the line at the grocery store.
When you finally get home that evening, you’re tired and agitated. And then, just as you open the front door, you’re greeted with a scene that makes you want to throw your bulging bag of groceries out the window…
The babysitter’s fast asleep on the sofa, and your grinning child has just crayoned her own rendition of the Sistine Chapel on your freshly painted living room wall.
So how will you react? Will you…
A) Confiscate your child’s crayons, and tell her to never, ever do that again?
B) Tell yourself “she’s just a child, she doesn’t know any better,” and proceed to give the babysitter a scolding she’ll never forget?
C) Try to forget about the whole ordeal, and do your best to clean up the mess later that night?
As a parent, you’re faced with these kinds of tough decisions every day. And because the best way to handle them isn’t always clear, sometimes you just need to go with your gut, right? But what if I told you that no matter which of these options you choose…
Your interaction with your child at this moment could end up seriously damaging their future!
