I have felt for myself and the experience of others what it is like when children are let out a little more than usual today or locked up for their safety. Children of anxious parents are more prone to anxiety and cannot get back on their feet because they have never been able to be independent. A more relaxed "go, son!" parent-type children are self-confident, and self-confidence is necessary for an independent life. Now we may think that self-confidence in a risky situation is not life insurance, but it is not. It's not frivolity, it's just healthy self-confidence.
If we put a full mug in the hands of a small child and say: “be careful not to spill the tea!” he is more likely to tell it than if we didn't say anything. If we tell a child to go to a professional essay help rather than write on his own, he won't learn anything about writing homework. By doing this, we only strain the child and force him to pay attention to the danger. Consider that a confident child is more likely to make smart decisions than a shy child. Those who protect their children from the wind because they want them to be safe are really hurting the child's chances of growing into a confident, independent adult.
Let's teach them to think for themselvesOur children should not only make their own decisions, but also be able to think independently. Although it is very annoying when our seedling enters into an argument with us, it still shows that he is thinking and trying to form an independent opinion. And this is exactly what we want to achieve (although maybe not now).
How to teach children to think for themselves?By asking them questions. It doesn't matter if we ask them why they prefer cricket to football; how to organize a lagzi of a hundred people; What can be done to slow down global warming. The thing is, they have a lot to think about.
We can safely question their assumptions. Certainly not rigid by any means; it is enough to ask the question: "why do you think so?" we can ask our two year old why dogs bark. A twelve-year-old teenager can already give his opinion on whether he considers the price of branded sports shoes realistic. Ask questions over and over again. Let's force them to defend their opinion, to prove their truth even through debate. And when they start thinking about the things in the world without us bombarding them with questions, then we're on the right track.
