Raising a confident, intelligent, athletic and respectful child is perhaps the primary goals of every dedicated parent. As most of us would agree, that is far easier said than done.
Balancing discipline with at least equal parts of love, is possibly the primary goal of a parent for themselves.
Nurturing is also about helping children get in touch with they value they posses and that their ideas are good, so they can be free to be creative and build confidence from within themselves.
Helpful parental engagement starts with collaboration and; teaching children how to learn and think.
If you don’t help teach your children how to embrace the natural consequences of life, then they will no doubt have more learning to do in that regard and may fall harder after life’s many difficult lessons.
