Parenting is maybe one of the most difficult tasks. Once we become parents, we develop in a very sudden manner certain skills that amaze us. Our lives change, our priorities change and also our behavior and way of thinking.
A kid is a great responsibility and most parents try helping their children to survive in this world and grow up as responsible adults. We want to be perfect, but have you ever met the perfect parents with no flaws at all?
One thing that might disturb us somehow is the mess they might leave behind them. Teaching our kids to clean after themselves is a very difficult task and some parents might not be able of finding the key to success.
Is this as important as you might think it is? Should we force our kids to gather all their toys after they have played with them? Is it OK to clean ourselves after them, or we will get a lazy kid in a very short time? Should we give them a restrictive and harsh education or should we leave them to decide what is best for them?
These are a few questions to which I intend to answer in the following rows of this article.
Few details about parenting
Lately, I have heard and seen many theories about how the new generation of kids should be educated. Many parents consider that they will develop a stronger and healthier personality if they will not include any rules in their education.
Others try to include those rules in a subtle manner so the kids will not see them as they really are. The third type of education seems to be the one who many of us consider traditional.
More exactly I am talking about that type of education when rules are rules form the beginning and they must be obeyed with no explanations, when you as a parent will kiss and hug your kid, just when he is asleep so he will not become too spoiled and when the parents decisions should not be questioned even if they are wrong.
