It seems that children are mirror images of their parents. It is like saying “Like Father, Like Son.”
The way in which parents nurture and raise their children is almost similar to the method they were raised when they were
young. It is almost certain that a mother, who is overly self-confident and motivated, might raise her children in the
same way, as she was raised when she was young and tender. In other words, a child is the sum of his or her parents'
personal traits and characters.
Parents may need to assess their parenting style and start working from there before trying to parent their children. It
is always better to understand this issue, because it is almost impossible to change the parenting style at a later stage,
as children might involuntarily settle on a particular style. Every parenting style is different and unique and one may
never match the other style.
However, the best parenting style never relies on anything that is excessive. An effective parenting style is the one
that is well-balanced and uniformed in its approach. Whatever the style parents choose and pick, one thing is almost
certain: that it should be filled with enough love and affection, apart from equal amounts of discipline and righteousness.
Thought for today:
