Another big problem most children seem to face with overprotection is a decrease in their confidence. They are always going to try and do what they can to meet your standards. When they do not think they meet the standards of where you want them to be, they will start to doubt themselves and feel as though nothing they do is ever good enough. These findings are very true to me; watching my peers grow up around me and seeing just how different parenting skills are can be is very alarming. A lot of parents think that raising their kids a certain way is what is best for them.
The proper guidance given will allow a child to know that it is better to do the right thing. They will also learn that doing the right thing will make them get in less trouble over all. The proper guidance given by parents is the key factor that will have the biggest impact on the lives of their children. If parents are the largest role models in children’s lives, it will show them to avoid situations that will get them into trouble. If the parents are not doing their job and giving this guidance correctly, then their children will end up getting in trouble because they were not taught any better.
As parents one only want the best for their children. Therefore, one sometimes tend to come off as strict parents. Parents that only want the best for their children try to teach them respect and mold them into bright, intelligent individuals. Nowadays, the way you appear and carry yourself if very important. Parents who do not let their child participate in some events only does this because one is looking out for their children.
They have high expectations of their children, usually do not respond to them, and will withdrawal love from children. Some parents may engage in psychological control of their children. They will put down the child’s friends, decisions, schooling, and ideas. According to Baumrind, these parents "are obedience- and status-oriented, and expect their orders to be obeyed without explanation" (Baumrind, 1991). Children of these parents are most likely to be obedient and proficient, but they are, also, anxious, unhappy, hostile, aggressive, and have low self-esteem (Santrock, 2012).
Every parent eventually learns this. The easy way or the hard way. Although other people think that parents should be strict, tough, and very observant on their child or teen, many other articles think that Parents should let their children make their own decisions and they think that they need be a little lenient on the child’s freedom. This has been a great debate ever since 2005. Parents should be lenient on their child’s freedom because if the parents don't let their child have much freedom, the child and the parents won’t have a sturdy relationship with each other, they won’t learn how to make choices for themselves in the long
The results, as Amy Morin who is a psychotherapist says, “Children who grow up with strict authoritarian parents tend to follow rules much of the time. But, they may develop self-esteem problems” (Morin). In other words, the results of this parenting style cause children to lack in confidence as well as not being sure of their own decision-making skills. Neglectful parenting on the other hand is when the parents are not involved in the child's life. The parents take care of the child's basic needs of survive like food and shelter, but they don't comfort the child or try being in their lives.
Parents usually have the best intentions – like protecting their children from life's hardships and preparing them for adulthood. However as with many other aspects of parenting, the results do not always match the intentions. Overprotective parents generally want to protect their children from harm, hurt, pain, failure, unhappiness, bad experiences, rejection, and disappointment (Lindsey 1). However, parents must realize that overprotective parenting has certain side effects. Parents believe that they are doing a favor for their children by keeping them safe without realizing that this parenting style can have severe effects on children such as robbing children of the essential life skills that they need in order to have a healthy personality and to face life problems.
﻿“Can parenting or child rearing be non-punitive?” Is one of the most common questions that parents ask. If spanking is so effective, why do most people have such an uneasy feeling about it? Some how we cannot silence our inner doubts about the long term effects of physical punishment. We are a little embarrassed by the use of force and we keep saying to ourselves, “”here ought to be a better way of rearing children.” Another reason is, within ourselves, no one wants to be hit. While hitting releases anger and frustration, and might work in the short-term, what parents really want is for children to be self controlled and disciplined.
As for others, spanking is wrong because these parents think there can be a future problems from the effect of spanking. Spanking children can lead to emotional, mental and even physical problem as they grow up because the later effects of spanking and abuse caused by the disciplinary action of spanking. While I am against spanking a child, I understand that spanking a child can discipline him/her. Parents control the correction of their children; every parent knows how to make their child listen to them. Some parents threaten to spank their child so the child stops misbehaving immediately because the child does not want to get hit.
Which I find funny because they are always saying I was a kid once too but then they just seem to forget what it feel like because they are too busy being a parent. I think thats one of the biggest reasons that they don’t understand, if they had a kids perspective i truly believe that they would handle a lot of things differently. Some parents don’t care about trying to understand they just try to use their children to make their lives better even at the cost of their children's happiness. While some parents do know a lot, in cases like they are asking you to do something dangerous, if they want you to do something that goes against what you believe, and if they don’t understand the situation. Obviously you should not listen to your parents if they are telling you to do something that is dangerous or something that could harm you because they clearly don’t have your best interests in mind if they are asking you to do that.
