You are parents? You want to raise happy, healthy and successful children?
If you have ever wondered how to make sure your children will be happy, healthy and successfully master their lives, it is time to dig a little bit deeper into this question. After having read the following lines you will discover one critical mistake many people do when it comes to parenting. Your and your child’s life is meant to be happy, healthy & successful. Being a parent is an amazing and rewarding experience and you can teach your child all the skills to master their life happily and successfully.
If you are like most parents you have a clear purpose: you want your children to be happy, healthy and successful! Most parents do everything they can, they want everything to be perfect and they put a lot of energy, effort and especially money to reach this goal: A clean house, healthy food, good education, plenty of career opportunities, language skills, international experience. They want to open the doors of possibilities to their child’s feet! What’s about you? Do you also work hard, doing everything for your child’s wellbeing: regular family vacation, a nice house with a garden, maybe even a pool, the best school! You pay for their private education, you allow learning an instrument, maybe even more than one, you encourage to join the school’s sports team. Is this enough to make sure your child will be happy, healthy & successful in life? Is there maybe anything else you could do and that will make your life as a parent even more fun, easier and more relaxed?
If you want to raise happy, healthy & successful children, don’t keep your focus only on material matters
Material safety is important for our children and helping them to find out what they are best in, too. It is essential to fulfill our children’s basic needs.
So what? You are wondering what you could do more to guarantee your child’s happiness? Is there anything more you can do? Yes, there is. The thing is if your child will be happy, healthy and successful in life or not will depend much more on your education style than on your financial spending and career opportunities you provide to your child. Depending on which parenting style you adopt you will either raise children that are happy, healthy and successful in life or children who will struggle, suffer from a personality disorder and fail in their professional life or their love life or both.
Many parents have the best interest, put a lot of money in raising their children, but fail in their project of raising happy, healthy and successful children. They don’t know which skills they need to succeed in their parenting adventure. Most parents do the same thing their parents did with them and are sometimes even not aware of harmful behavior. If your parents’ focus was on material things and this was their way to show love to you, you might do the same. Many parents reward their children when they do great and punish their children when they do not obey by giving money or taking toys away. They buy them toys or allow the grandparents to buy toys to make them (the child and the grandparents) happy and to still bad feelings. They fulfill every single wish. You want your child to be happy. What most parents don’t know: all this will be no guaranty that their children will be happy, healthy & successful in life, neither at work nor in private life. In order to raise happy, healthy & successful children, you need to use the best parenting style, a parenting style that fosters, happiness, health and success for your child.
