I must admit raising a child nowadays is not a joke! They are so smart and much wiser in so many ways that even us parents are running out of reasons to explain. Sometimes it's really hard for us to manage the situations when your child has tantrums, we can ask ourselves why your child has this kind of unwanted behavior when in our time we did not undergo this kind of traits when we were once a kid.
There are no perfect parenting guidelines but at least we have to try the ideal ways on how to teach our not to be self-centered, selfish and a brat!
1. Saying No is a must!
This is the powerful words you can establish and be implemented to your child's mind. Most of a child is always asking what they want rather than asking what they need. Like for example, they want to sneak and play on their Android tablet for additional hours during school days it's a totally a big no. You can say no at all times even if you can afford it or is it available all the time. Don't forget to explain to your kids the pros and cons when you said no most of the time.
2. Show some Gratitude
Teaching your child to say sorry, please and thank you is a very important trait. Every time they sincerely feel sorry and thankful to the person, teach them to make an eye contact when telling the person that you feel sorry or saying thank you. This trait will show you affection and appreciation for the kind and generous things that are said and in return, your child will adopt the humility values when they grow up.
3. Sharing is caring
Teaching your child to donate their used clothes and toys to the charity or to those in needs will be remarkable. Guide and let them do this every year most probably every Christmas day so that they know the spirit of giving and loving.
4. Grandparents intentions
Most of the time, this is annoying on our part when we tried to discipline our kids but their grandparents will interfere. Most of the grandparents want to spoil the kids, maybe because they've seen each other once in a while so they want to give what the kids what they want. Talk and ask them to spoil their grandchildren with time, affection, attention, and love, not with the treat, toys, and money, then probably when they grew up they turn to be a responsible person someday.
5. Teaching them the true value of money
The ability of your child saving money at such a young age is a good foundation for being a responsible person when they grew up. Let them manage their money through savings or let them start by giving them a piggy bank to save money for their remaining allowance.
Share your story by telling your children about the true values that you've learned by passing the traits from your parent on how you became today. Reminding them most of the time with this traits gradually can help your children to understand the true meaning of humility.
