A heart-based parenting is the best kind of parenting. There is no time to be lazy in parenting and in this task that you have been given, you need to be keen and observant. If parenting is a heart thing, why are there still books and guides to parenting that most parents refer to. Many parents do not trust themselves. There were no guides or books when we were raised by our parents by merely with the help of their parents, aunts, and uncles.
If we watch the children of today closely, it would seem that even with all the books and guides in parenting all over the place, many of them are still not turning out well. Parents today can be uncaring of their children or they can also be over indulgent as well giving them anything that the want. They don’t put any limits to their child. There is no teaching or instruction in the home where the child is taught what he or she cannot do. If you encourage your children to strive to attain their ambitions in life, you also need to teach them that there is proper behavior that they should exhibit in public that they should always observe.
Your children will learn from whatever you teach them if you are serious enough to teach them and lead them from the heart. The child will have an educated conscience which will direct him to choose right from wrong. It will be a natural development if the parents are consistent with their parenting. The presence of the parent will not lead to anything if they don’t get involved in their child’s life and the child will get the message that their parents don’t really care whether they are there or not. These parents do not direct their children in the way that they should go. If children have no limits, then it will be to the parent’s disadvantage. The consciences of children who are allowed to do what they want will not be bothered even if they are already doing wrong.
The ruthless ambition in children is developed this way. 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.
Parents need to pay attention to their children. If parenting your child is difficult for you, then you should look for help form an outside source. There are a lot of parenting help now being offered by companies and organizations and some even have websites for this purpose. If you want to put good conscience in your children, then you should take parenting seriously.
