A heart-based parenting is the best kind of parenting. You need to be keen and observant and you should not be lazy in this task that has been given to you. So, if this is the case, why do parents need to use books and guides to parenting? There are many parents today who do not trust themselves to be able to implement that which is necessary for a child to grow properly. There were no guides or books when we were raised by our parents by merely with the help of their parents, aunts, and uncles.
If we watch the children of today closely, it would seem that even with all the books and guides in parenting all over the place, many of them are still not turning out well. Parents today can be uncaring of their children or they can also be over indulgent as well giving them anything that the want. They don’t put any limits to their child. There are many parents that do not teach anything to their children in the home about right and wrong behavior. If you encourage your children to strive to attain their ambitions in life, you also need to teach them that there is proper behavior that they should exhibit in public that they should always observe.
A heart that is serious enough to care to teach children the proper values in life, will have children that will understand what you are trying to teach. The child’s conscience will be developed to tell right from wrong. Conscience will develop naturally with the parents’ consistency in their parenting. If a parent is not involved and just manages to be there but does not seem to care, then the child gets this idea that their parents don’t care whether they are at home or not. Here there is no guidance for the children into the correct direction. There are no limits set for the child and that is a disadvantage for the parents. The consciences of children who are allowed to do what they want will not be bothered even if they are already doing wrong.
This is how you develop ruthless ambition in children. There is nothing wrong about pursuing your dreams for the future, but it becomes wrong when you achieve your goals at whatever cost. If a child is not taught when young, she will not know if she is already doing something wrong because she will not know that there is a proper way.
Great attention should be given by the parents to their children. It is important to look for help from an outside source, if you find it difficult to parent your child. There are a lot of parenting help now being offered by companies and organizations and some even have websites for this purpose. You should not be lazy in this task if you want to raise children with a conscience.
