Raising children is an extremely challenging, yet highly rewarding and fulfilling experience. If you’re a parent, chances are you’ve experienced both the frustration of trying to figure out the “right” way to raise your children and the feeling of joy that often comes from watching them grow.
The way we raise our children sets the precedence for the rest of their lives. It helps mold and shape them and unleash their potential for later on in life. Like every child, every parent is different and has a different parenting style. And while there aren’t any rules for raising children, there are some qualities shared by all good parents that you should keep in mind.
So, what is the right way to raise children?
In this course, Yogi and mystic Sadhguru shares his insight on parenting which comes from his deep sense of realization and understanding of the way life is structured.
"If you are genuinely interested in giving your children a good upbringing, you should first transform yourself into a peaceful and loving human being." When a child enters your house, it is not the time to become a teacher, it is time to learn
Parenting involves a certain amount of discretion. There is no one standard rule for all children. Different children may need different levels of attention, expression of love, and toughness.
A child is influenced by so many things – the TV, neighbors, teachers, school, and a million other things. He will go the way of whatever he finds most attractive. As a parent, you have to make yourself in a way that the most attractive thing he finds is to be with the parents. If you are a joyous, intelligent, and wonderful person, he won’t seek company anywhere else. For anything, he will come and ask you.
If you are genuinely interested in giving your children a good upbringing, Sadhguru says that you should first transform yourself into a peaceful and loving human being.
