My in-depth study on the psychology of childrens' minds reveal the facts that their attitudes are solely dependent on their circumstances and their upbringing levels at home & school. It's one thing sure any kid require is 'Love, patience & Self Esteem.' Communication is proven skill. Talking n Listening to kids simply doesn't mean communication but Understanding with luv and patience is the key to successful parenting. It is a marathon task coping with parental frustrations and negative attitudes of kids. The child would not develop warm relationship due to damaged sense of self. The higher children's self esteem, the more secure, decisive, friendly, trusting, cheerful, optimistic and purposeful they are. Child's willingful cooperation, setting limits, alternate punishments are all the points to be focused so that parenting becomes more a joy to bring up kids. How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk by Adele Faber & Elaine Mazlish is my recommendation for reading and as we see the world on brimming new technologies, the techno hi fi kids too need a lot of understanding.
