When Do You Let Grow For Your Child?

In society we are often told to “let grow”; young children are hard to handle and need space to develop. But, for parents who are never happy with their children until they reach certain age and milestones, this notion becomes “I didn’t want my baby at any age but as soon as he becomes (or gets older) why should I ever stay with him?”

Isn’t this just pure arrogance?

Stop pretending they’re perfect

If you’re one of those parents who can never get enough of your child, you just need to realize the problem with constantly “sending him out of the house and controlling every aspect of his life.” During the early childhood years your child should be spending as much time as possible with you, comforting him, guiding him, and also making him feel like he’s the most important person in the world. But, what about growing up? You need to accept that they’re going to have problems on their own and that’s not your job to try and protect them. Do you really want your child to look back and realize you didn’t respect their feelings enough to let them see them develop?

Understanding that your children need to learn on their own (without you acting as super humans) is a good way to let grow.

Teach them to enjoy themselves

When kids feel nurtured and loved by their parents they’re more likely to be content with themselves and to enjoy the world around them. Instead of letting them always demand more, spend some time on independent skills they need to learn. Here are some tips for raising confident kids:

Get regular rides to and from the school bus

Trust your child to get home on time

Don’t buy and feed them things they don’t need

More important than a lot of these tips is knowing yourself and the person you are so that you can guide your child into understanding themselves and their abilities. Take up art or music with them and show them why it’s important for them to keep learning things on their own. With your child, you become a sort of role model by teaching them how to be in control of their environment.

Let them grow

I know it sounds odd, but if you encourage your child to develop both vocally and physically while you’re very tense and full of nagging then your child will hate you and you will despise yourself for the rest of your life. Teach your child, be open to them and let them discover who they are.

The children your having some fun in then. Having a good time with your child is far more important than constantly monitoring them and never letting them leave the house for things like swimming lessons or art or piano lessons. If you’re always too busy checking on them, you’re overcompensating and end up missing the sweet, tender moments you should be fostering with your child.

Focus on young children, learn from them

It’s important to take the kids out of the home when they start heading into their teenage years because when the children grow up they tend to turn into quite an entitled lot. Spending time with the other grandchildren or the older children shows your child how others were raised. Give them a thorough grounding in the values you both hold before they go on to become people in their own right.

Letting grow

Since they’re developing outside of your home how can you expect them to stay there with you if they’re constantly going out with their friends? By letting them grow they open the door for you to finally be able to have proper time with them and you can build closer relationships with each other. Time and again studies have shown that the more time you spend together, the more you are able to communicate, laugh, share experiences, and recognize each other as people, rather than just as parents. If you keep delaying this opportunity by constantly being tense and controlling them, you’re going to end up constantly yelling or cajoling them to behave, rather than being open and trusting them to take their own decisions.
