Bringing up of a child is a sensitive issue; one should pay proper attention not only towards the materialistic needs of a child but also the emotional needs. Child psychology clearly states that the intelligence of child by birth is not an issue under control of parents, but one thing which can subsidize the intelligence quotient by birth is emotional intelligence. Emotions are related to attitude, behavior, tensions, happiness, anger, stress and so on. These can totally be guided by the upbringing of a child, the atmosphere he/she gets at home, the education they get. It’s all about how the parents are nurturing their children.
Why parents need to devote quality time to their kids?
The children who get adequate quality time, guidance, support, care from their parents are emotionally balanced and strong as compare to the children who do not get attention from their parents. The parents who do not pay proper attention to their children are somehow inviting tensions for themselves and their kid’s future. Mostly, such kind of children are not able to excel in various fields of life be it studies, sports, career etc., they lag behind everywhere which in turn cause frustration and inferior complex to both parent and child, which ultimately led to problematic relationship of child not only with their parents but also with outer world. Child can take up various bad habits like taking drugs and indulge himself into bad company to pacify his needs of socialization.
Proper parenting can solve many issues related to child. Parents have to deal with the children fairly and patiently. Active and alert parents can easily guide the emotional needs of their child. It can work wonders. An emotionally stable child can easily survive in the world as compared to an emotionally unstable child. In fact, it is been noted that emotionally stable children surpasses intelligent but emotionally unstable people in various fields.
So, it is important to pay adequate attention to emotional needs of a child in addition to his/her materialistic requirements.
