“Children are great imitators, so give them something great to imitate”

Parents are the greatest influence in a child’s life. Growing in their parents’ environment year after year, a child adapts to their parents’ biased such as traditions, morals, values and belief system. Children also learn attitudes of acceptance in which their viewpoints allow them to explore new experiences and become their own identity. Parenting styles can influence how children decipher information and communicate. Though there are external sources that impact how a child may perceive their worldview such as media, school, friends, and church, a parent has the biggest impression because they are the most consistent figure in their life.

The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development states parents are generally responsible for the following:

  • Keeping children safe
  • Listening to children and spending time with them
  • Providing affection, order and consistency
  • Setting and enforcing limits
  • Monitoring their children’s friendships
  • Seeking help for any medical or behavioral concerns

“It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings”
– Ann Landers

In the mist of physical, emotional and spiritual growth, children try to take on the role of independency even when they are not exactly ready. Challenges that parents often face the most is communication with their children. Its important for parents to consider the developmental stage and maturity level when interacting with them. This is how a parent can properly teach their children in a mindset that the child can comprehend and understand. When children have a hard time understanding what their parent is trying to convey, they may feel frustrated and annoyed, which can lead to thoughts that they are disappointing when they prefer their parent’s approval. Circumstances such as this can negatively impact their self-esteem which could be harbored into adulthood. For new parents, it may be hard to know the effective ways to communicate or even how to discipline a child. It can be confusing, but that is why we are here! We have professionals that have worked with clients who struggled in this area or who has even experienced similar issues their self and learned what it takes to make it work!
