HELP IN RAISING CHILDREN
is a task for which there is often no decent training available, so many people
are not prepared. People may study all kinds of other, less important, subjects
for many years, but for childrearing – as for marriage – they can be quite
unprepared and not understand how they should behave.
Next we will consider the different aspects
of raising children and explore ways in which everyone might become a better
parent. We will examine especially the conduct and actions that are wrong. Many
of these harmful actions have become so deeply rooted in us that we do not even
realize what we are doing. We do not recognize our own actions, so we repeat
them because we do not know what else to do.
In the next chapters we try to
find a way to free ourselves from these wrong behaviors and to find practical
ways in which a parent can show his/her approval of his children and to direct
them toward the right kind of behavior. To some people, these issues might
already be familiar; some people may be excellent educators, but most parents probably
need to know better ways to raise their children. We try to examine some of
these methods below.
1 - Show approval!
2 - If there are behavior problems
