The loving nature of kids can make it hard to be tough on them. Like we always want to provide what they request and maybe spoil them with things we feel they need. As a parent, it is a very crucial part of your responsibility to meet the needs of your kid, but then this can’t be considered pampering.
Pampering has other names tagged along with it which are overindulgence, spoiling, to mention a few. And all these words mean just one thing; it means your child’s future is at stake. You might have your doubts about that since all you are doing is for the benefit of the kid but follow me through this article and see the reasons;
The child grows with the mentality that they can get whatever they want: This effect might not be quick to manifest, but it definitely will. Because since they were babies, everything they ever requested was being provided, and being all grown up, changing that will be close to impossible. The problem with providing all the kids demands is that they get comfortable with getting everything they want even though the world does not work that way. So when they realize the world doesn’t work like that, they go an extra length to get whatever they want which might not be good.
Since they did not work for almost everything they had, they tend to be impatient and rude: Providing for them is important, yes, that’s why we are their parents. But sometimes attaching conditions to their demands before providing it for them can be a way to go to instill good values. You will be killing two birds with one stone, that is, training them while providing for them. On the other hand, falling for their every demand will disrupt their good values.
Scolding your children is not a bad thing, over pampering is: Some parents are scared to scold their children when they misbehave, well, the truth is we are all scared. But that fear is nothing compared to how the child will turn out if we don’t. While you are being encouraged to scold your children when they misbehave, please take note of the “when they misbehave” and do not abuse them.
