Responsible child

Almost every parent wants a child who is aware of his responsibilities. No child is born irresponsible. sense of responsibility; It is gained by being taught by the parents in the early childhood in the family life of the person. Responsibility that is not instilled at home during this period will also complicate school life. You can instill this feeling when the child begins to walk and understand your simple commands. We can start with the eating problem, which I have encountered frequently recently. Even though they are 2-3 years old, I come across many children who are fed by their mother in front of the screen. In fact, between 12-18 months, the child can make many motor movements. In this process, the ability to hold and grasp will develop well. You can allow the use of cutlery to eat his own food. Many behaviors that you consider and implement as parenting duties are actually the biggest obstacles to children’s ability to take responsibility. So what can we do to gain a sense of responsibility?

First of all, we must have a grasp of the age, ability and developmental stages of the child. You can observe what he likes to do in order to do his own self-care, and give him appropriate tasks. We also want our child to display responsible behavior, but are we? Remember, the child applies what he sees, not what he hears. Children are like our mirror and they reflect our behavior to us.

Another point is; We can say that we give tasks appropriate to the age. For example, you can’t expect a 2-year-old to tidy his room, but he can put his toys away. It is useful to take into account not only age, but also characteristic features. Do you think it ends with choosing tasks appropriate for his age and giving commands? Of course no. You must support your self-confidence. You may be undermining your self-confidence with the words you say without realizing it. For example; You should not take away the things he can do with words such as ‘stop, it will hurt, you can’t do it, I will do it, be careful, you will fall..’ In addition, using these sentences frequently will make him feel inadequate. This can create introversion and self-confidence in the child in the future. Finally, motivating will develop a sense of responsibility. Consider it normal that he can’t do what you tell him to do like an adult. If you wait for perfection, his motivation will drop. Appreciate what he can. Expressing your satisfaction to his face with love and compassion will motivate him. Remember, we are preparing them for life. To be a guide, to shed light, you must first shine. You cannot do this by using pejorative, overprotective or imperative moods. Stay healthy..
