Provide Age-Appropriate Guidance — Parenting Guide
Children are divided by age and as a parent, you need to know the abilities of each child according to their age
There is a famous poem whose main idea is “I am always late”. This is often a problem with parents too; they do not guide their children based on their age. They either keep them under strict restrictions or entirely ignore them, resulting in the children not receiving the ideal upbringing. I was enraged when my son began to walk but still refused to use the potty. After a few months, he began using the potty and going to the bathroom on his own, and I realized I had the wrong expectations at the wrong time.
Children are divided by age, and as a parent, you should be aware of the abilities of your child according to their age. When parents take this into consideration, they will not have unrealistic expectations of their child and will be able to provide appropriate training according to their age. For example, a 2- to 5-year-old child can make their bed, clean their shoes, help clean the dishes, and help clean the house, etc.
What works for your child today may not work as well in a year or two. As the child grows older, his world continues to expand. He gradually begins to recognize his parents and other family members. As he advances in life, he learns to discriminate between good and evil. As a result, it is critical to adapt your parenting style to the child’s age and mentality.
Children should do the following according to age, but this is not a strict order. For example, a 6 to the 11-year-old child can also serve a guest.
When we look at the developed world, we see that children grow up with specific goals. Their parents or institutions give them these goals. You may have heard of many 16-year-olds who have become entrepreneurs. Some children become millionaires before reaching the age of 20. These children were brought up in such a way that they followed the pattern from the start. They start focusing on a certain idea when they were in school and succeed.
