Every parent want their child to be an epitome of perfection. But we have to understand that children are also complicated little beings just like adults.
What makes a child complicated
Can you truly understand what a child is thinking and the way they see things? Usually not and most of the time we give it little thought. However this is something that every parent needs to understand. A child has as complex a nature like an adult because their way of thinking is not conformed. We can teach children right from wrong and how th
ey should behave and react in general. These are just broad guidelines within which our children develop and grow.
What does a child think?
The thought process of a child is very simple. They take things as they are in the literal sense. They do not complicate matters with assumptions as adults do. An adult will see a situation and assume a million things about it, which just makes their perception of the matter very complicated. This is where children differ. A horse galloping is a horse galloping – at the most they may ask where the horse may be going. They are not flooded with other thoughts like whose horse is it, has it run away, where has it come from, why it is running the way it is, has it been tortured and hurt by its master, is it looking for its master and a million other thoughts will flow through the mind of an adult while watching the horse run.
In the mean while the child has enjoyed the scene of watching the grace with which the horse gallops, the way it moves and captured the scene the way it is without being distracted by frivolous thoughts.
Allow children to develop and grow
Just because children don’t give in to needless frivolous thoughts it doesn’t mean they are not capable of judging a situation. Every child has their own opinion and an view of every situation. It is important to allow a child to develop as an individual without being moulded into the limited personality acceptable by society. No one is perfect and neither are our children.
We need to loosen the noose and give our children space to become the person they were born to be. Let us not curtail them from doing what they desire to do. Giving children the opportunity to travel
on school tours and see different places will help them grow as individuals.
