A heart-based parenting is the best kind of parenting. Keen observation is needed in good parenting so we should not be lazy in this task which is laid upon us as parents. If parenting is a heart thing, why are there still books and guides to parenting that most parents refer to. There are many parents today who do not trust themselves to be able to implement that which is necessary for a child to grow properly. 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. Limits are not known by their children. In these cases, children are not taught by their parents what they can or cannot do. Although it is good to encourage to have ambitions for their future, they should also be taught that proper behavior has to be exhibited all the time when in public.
Your children will learn from whatever you teach them if you are serious enough to teach them and lead them from the heart. With the proper teaching, the child’s conscience will be developed to discern between right and wrong. If parents are consistent with their parenting, then the child’s conscience will develop naturally. 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. Here there is no guidance for the children into the correct direction. The disadvantage for the parents is that they don’t set a limit for their children. Children will do what they want without their conscience being bothered about wrongdoing.
This is how you develop ruthless ambition in children. Children can have their dreams or ambitions for the future, but it is not a good thing to achieve these 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.
Great attention should be given by the parents to their children. It is important to look for help from an outside source, if you find it difficult to parent your child. You can find many organizations and companies, and online sites that cater to helping parents in their task of parenting their children. You should not be lazy in this task if you want to raise children with a conscience.
