PARENTS' ROLE IN THEIR CHILDREN'S UPBRINGINGBY: Karthik | Category: Relationships | Post Date: 2009-07-19
Summary: 'Who are we!' could sound like a very inane question, but mull over this for a moment, and you would concur with me in saying that indeed it's so profound a question that we spend our whole life looking out for an apt answer. From my perspective, every being is but a reflection of her/his own surroundings - our souls are shaped, characters chiseled, and habits imbued upon us. And our first acquaintance on this earth is with the judgments, faults and fallacies of our parents which impact us a lot
In the grooming of a child, parents play a very vital role. But anomalies arise, when the role of the parents are not set out right. It has been the long held view that in the bringing up of a child, the mother reserves the prime responsibility and the father has to take care of the family as a whole, with respect to other aspects, which do not directly pertain to the upbringing of the child. But this is a crass misconception.
Parents influence the lives of their children in every aspect and leave an impression which remains throughout their lives. For one very common instance, it is but natural that a boy aspires to imitate his father in driving or a daughter desires to acquire the culinary expertise from her mother. The seeds of thought which parents sow in the minds of their wards will go a long way in defining their courses of lives.
It is not to be overlooked that when a child enters this world as a new tenant, its mind remains a tabula rasa. It is the parents who imbue the morals (or otherwise) into their minds. As such, the attitudes of the parents will certainly be reflected in the activities of their children. Therefore, when a child sees the world around it through the eyes of its parents, it is but natural that its world takes up the shape of the perspectives of its parents.
This could be the sole reason, why parents are required to be role models for their wards and it is indeed their responsibility to see that they set fine standards for their children to grow up, emulate and groom into dignified individuals.
The ill-effects of sheer negligence on the part of the parents in taking care of the children will be appalling. It is no exaggeration to point out that many children end up being juvenile derelicts, thanks to the insouciance of their parents in setting up moral standards for them. Hence, it is high time parents realized the significance of their roles in bringing up their children and the price which they have to pay for their inaction.
Parents are the first and the best teachers for any child. The teacher may praise or punish, behave unruly or orderly, but ultimately the test is set for the children. Thus, parents deserve kudos for shaping up a responsible individual and they have to warrant for any unacceptable behaviour of their children as well.
