The Changing World for Children

Jumpstart_Embrace

We all know that change is inevitable. The world is changing and  in the few years, the rate of change has increased exponentially not only in the terms of technology but also our lifestyle and relationships.

If we are concerned about the development of our child whether as a parent, teacher, counsellor, well-wisher or a responsible citizen, we owe to ourselves to understand that both the ‘needs’ and ‘wants’of today’s child are quite different and are also changing rapidly. In order to successfully and harmoniously deal with today’s child, we not only need to adapt to change, we actually have to anticipate it.

We as caregivers do not know what our children they will look like, be like, or have the potential to become. Our job, like the gardeners, is to meet their needs as best we can: to give proper nourishment, love, attention, caring and to hope for the best.

Here are a few things we can do:

a. Whenever the child does something good give positive strokes

b. Never compare a child to his/her siblings, friends or stranger

c. Periodically recollect his/her good qualities and tell him/her how proud you are of them

d. Whenever in doubt, do not lecture to the child rather let him/her talk

e. Create a comfortable atmosphere for him/her to talk about it. Never force the child to talk immediately, instead give time

f. Share stories of your own failures and successes

g. Include fun, laughter and meditation in the child’s daily life

h. Balance expectation and motivation
