What Does It Mean to Be a Good Parent: Guiding your Child with Effective Encouragement

March 23, 2022

Blog post What Does It Mean to Be a Good Parent: Guiding your Child with Effective Encouragement main image

Remember those piano lessons your mom made you take in the third grade? Was it your idea to start…or hers? We, as parents, want to guide our children toward the best opportunities and experiences to build skills and resiliency. Nonetheless, our understanding of what is best for them may not always match their own.

 Parents usually know what is best for their children since they have a unique understanding of their requirements, preferences, and desires. This ultra-close relationship allows parents to better steer their children into becoming responsible adults. You want your child to respect, trust, and listen to you, and you want to be encouraging but not overbearing. Parental pushing is typical, as parents seek that fine line between motivating their children and placing extra stress on them.

There are also secondary emotions, which are defined either as emotional reactions to primary emotions or as more complex combinations of our basic emotions. For instance, when a child gets yelled at, they might feel scared, and that fear can further lead to anger or anxiety. Controlling one’s emotions can be quite difficult, and the ability to do this depends on the person’s age and development.

Blog post Cyberbullying: Warning Signs, Effects on Children and How to Help main image

We are living in a world of technology, and everyone is glued to their gadgets as we do most things with them. Almost everyone uses Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now TikTok as a way to communicate with friends and even strangers. There is an age restriction with using these applications, nevertheless, it is easy for anyone to forge their age. Nearly all social media applications require their users to be at least 13 years old – this can be found under the applications’ Terms and Conditions. Age restrictions exist because COPPA law or Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act states that any organizations or people operating online services (including social media services) are not allowed to gather the personal data of anyone under the age of 13 without parental permission.
