A heart-based parenting is the best kind of parenting. You need to be keen and observant and you should not be lazy in this task that has been given to you. So, if this is the case, why do parents need to use books and guides to parenting? There are a lot of parents who don’t have confidence in their abilities to be a good parent. Our own parents did not use books or guides to train us in the proper way; their resources were mostly advice from their parents, aunts, and uncles.
The sad reality is that despite the numerous books on parenting out on the market today, you can still find a lot of children turning out badly in life. Parents today can be uncaring of their children or they can also be over indulgent as well giving them anything that the want. They don’t put any limits to their child. In these cases, children are not taught by their parents what they can or cannot do. If you encourage your children to strive to attain their ambitions in life, you also need to teach them that there is proper behavior that they should exhibit in public that they should always observe.
A heart that is serious enough to care to teach children the proper values in life, will have children that will understand what you are trying to teach. With the proper teaching, the child’s conscience will be developed to discern between right and wrong. Conscience will develop naturally with the parents’ consistency in their parenting. If a parent is not involved and just manages to be there but does not seem to care, then the child gets this idea that their parents don’t care whether they are at home or not. These parents do not direct their children in the way that they should go. There are no limits set for the child and that is a disadvantage for the parents. The consciences of children who are allowed to do what they want will not be bothered even if they are already doing wrong.
Ruthless ambition is created this way. There is nothing wrong about pursuing your dreams for the future, but it becomes wrong when you achieve your goals at whatever cost. If a child is not taught when young, she will not know if she is already doing something wrong because she will not know that there is a proper way.
Parents need to pay attention to their children. If parenting your child is difficult for you, then you should look for help form an outside source. You can find many organizations and companies, and online sites that cater to helping parents in their task of parenting their children. You need to be serious as a parent so that you children will grow up in a proper manner.
