Promoting the child’s self-confidence and self-esteem
The child’s self-confidence and construction must be strengthened and built early in childhood, starting with the child’s feeling of love and attention by his parents from a young age, and develops over time for several different reasons and methods, as the child feels confident by giving him some powers to act in certain situations, making progress towards achieving a certain goal, praising his parents and praising his good behaviors, and learning new skills and abilities, which makes him feel satisfied with himself, and other reasons.
Teaching the child the spirit of participation and cooperation
In the early stages of childhood, the child may find it difficult to share something with others, and may put his needs first, but he becomes little by little more willing to start participating with those around him, and here shows the role of parents in encouraging him to do so by praising him and praising his actions, and they may contribute to strengthening the concept of participation by teaching him activities based on cooperation and sharing with others instead of focusing on games aimed at competition and winning only, and they can also involve him in some housework to develop The spirit of cooperation has such as: ask for his help in the process of irrigating plants, or cleaning floors, etc.
Raising a child with respect and appreciation
Parents may want to teach their children how to deal with respect and adjust their feelings, and the best means and methods used to do so is to apply an example before him that indicates acting and dealing with him with respect, such as listening to his talk without interrupting him, accepting his point of view, and treating others gently and appreciatively, making him learn to do so and reflecting on his actions.
Teaching the child the language of apology
Children are usually embarrassed to apologize to each other, but this is not true, as children must be raised that words of apology can be said easily and clearly, do not constitute any embarrassment when the error comes from them, but the apology is a sound act to which the child thanks, which will make him change his behaviour.
Developing a child’s emotional intelligence
The development of emotional intelligence and the promotion of the concept of empathy in the child is one of the most important methods of education to be followed with him, as his principle is to put the child himself in the place of others and take their thoughts seriously. In the event of a disagreement between the child and one of his friends, the child can be asked to imagine the nature of his friend’s feelings, in addition to encouraging him to manage and control his emotions, working positively to find a suitable solution, and taking into account the motivation of the child to disclose his feelings for the development of his emotional intelligence, as well as the need to feel the attention of his parents towards his or her direction.
The researchers identified four types of child-rearing patterns, each taking different approaches and methods, which can be identified through a number of indicators, These patterns are described as:
authoritarian Parenting, authoritarian parents are usually described as strict, they use strict discipline with their children,and here are some of the characteristics that distinguish them:
They focus on using sanctions heavily, while reducing negotiation and dialogue between them and their children.
They adopt a one-track communication method directed at their children, as the rules are usually provided to the child without explaining the importance of following them.
Parents in this pattern are less caring for their children.
Parents in this pattern have high expectations of their children, with little flexibility in dealing with them.
Permissive Parenting often allows lenient or tolerant parents to do what they want with little guidance, and can be described as more friends with their children than fathers, and here are some of the characteristics that characterize them:
They stay away from the strict way of dealing with their children, sometimes they may set a few rules for them, they may not set any rules at other times, and they also provide opportunities for their children to learn about their own problems. Communication between them and their children is open in both directions, giving their children the opportunity to decide and choose what they prefer themselves rather than giving them directions. In this pattern, parents are more caring and caring for their children. Parents in this pattern have little expectation of their children, and sometimes no expectations may be placed by them.
Uninvolved Parenting gives parents full freedom in this style, and although some may intervene to make important decisions in education, others do not have full knowledge of how to educate, so they often do not interfere with their children’s decisions and choices, and here are some of the characteristics that distinguish them:
Parents of this pattern do not use a particular method to control their children’s behavior, they often allow the child to do what he wants, which may be due to a lack of information on how to deal and care for their child.
Their communication with their children is limited.
In this pattern, parents are characterized by little care for their children.
Parents in this pattern have few expectations of their children, and sometimes they may be non-existent.
Official or reliable education:
Authoritative Parenting, parents in this style are logical to think and provide good care for children, so their children are self-disciplined and able to think on their own, so this type of education can be considered the best and most beneficial for children, and here are some of the characteristics that characterize these parents: Establish clear disciplinary rules for children with a statement of why they are developed and intended. Communication between parents and children is periodically tailored to the level of understanding and awareness of children. In this pattern, parents are very caring for their children. Parents of this pattern have high expectations and goals from their children, but they are clearly placed, which may make children put them on the list of goals to be achieved.
The importance of raising children
Raising children is an important process. Children need constant care and guidance at all stages of their development. Education is not limited to the early years of their life, but it lasts into adolescence. Care and constant supervision provide a sense of mental and physical security for children, which in turn helps them develop in the emotional and behavioral aspects to the fullest.
The provision of continuous support and guidance to the child in his early years makes him feel reassured and safe, which helps him to build his personality and develop his confidence in himself and others. It should be noted that the importance of guidance and supervision during adolescence is no less than in childhood, which helps to protect the adolescent from going to bad activities such as alcohol, depression due to difficult circumstances, joining bad companions, thus helping him to grow properly, and reducing the formation of negative behaviors affecting the child and his community.
Parents should devote time to spending time with their children by engaging in some activities with them, such as having dinner, attending school celebrations, playing with them, reading a story or book for them, and other activities that help raise them properly, and parents can instill and consolidate family values in the child. Through many fun family activities such as organizing picnics and family meetings and interacting with him, which makes him realize that his family is always with him and is there for him, and although these activities seem very simple, they contribute to building trust between parents and children, and increase understanding between them.
The concept of child-rearing
Child rearing is defined as the process of raising a child from the moment of birth until he reaches puberty,referring to the ways and practices of parents to prepare him for an independent life by teaching him to abide by the rules of the society in which he lives, and how to deal with others properly.
The process of raising a child depends on several factors, including: the cultural influences surrounding him, how his parents grew up in childhood, their religious beliefs, their willingness to accept their child as a young being who needs love at all times, their knowledge of the right ways to support him and his happiness, help to develop and develop properly in childhood and adolescence, as well as the way parents think about making decisions about different issues, such as choosing the right ways to control and discipline their child, and the possibility of the mother working outside the home.
There is no particular method that can be considered to be the only correct method of raising a child, as successful breeding of independent and happy children around the world is due to the use of a variety of methods and not relying on a specific method, and many studies have shown that the secret of properly raising a child is based on the participation of parents in the care and upbringing of their child.
