But a big no to such people. Because between children and adults, who are more joyful? Children right!
So who has the necessity to learn from whom ? Obviously we should learn from the children like how to be joyful always. Children are highly qualified than us in this regard.
But yes, we know some methods to survive and earn money. And also know how to handle the outside world. But in the case of life, children are masters to convert any kind of situation into a joyful one.
No matter what, they make everything comfortable to them and start enjoying. Even if we give them some sand, they enjoy life with that for whole evening. They have the capacity to mould everything beautifully for themselves. We have to learn to be like them to live life with enjoyment.
But it is necessary that we have to guide them to learn a few survival tricks.
But it is not needed for us to behave like a boss to them.
Just remember, when we were kids, we used to share our problems with our friends, even though they are not qualified to guide. Why to create the same situation for our children ? Let us be friendly with them and help them to grow in a right path with our guidance.
So that there will be no space for the communication gap. A parent can become the child's best friend. This protects them not to develop bad habits or to take hasty decisions. Their self esteem also gets boost, which is very much essential to lead a positive and peaceful life.
This kind of parenting has the capacity to transform the whole society. Because today's children are tomorrow's youth. The future is in their hands.
