The kids don’t have the trouble of paying for the bills. They even don’t need to worry about the money, the job or the housework. However, they truly also have everyday things that may make them feel upset or disappoint. In my opinion, parents should play an active role in helping the kids dealing with daily problems with ease.
Firstly, parents should get to know what actually the kids are worrying about. The kids of different age and stage can have different worries. Most of the kids or preteens worry about the grades of the tests, the relationship among the friends or the missing goal during the match.etc. If the kids are worrying something, encourage them to talk with you about their troubles and problems. Listening with enough attention and patience and try to share your story with them will help the kids conquer the problems with ease and give them a good model.
Secondly, guiding is more important than solving for the kids. Parents can decrease the worries by helping the kids deal with challenging cases by themselves. When the children come up with a problem, it’s a better way to help them set up a solution rather than solving all the problems for them. It is very helpful for them to learn something through conquering the difficulties.
Thirdly, give your kids correct conceptions at the right time. Sometimes the children may feel anxious about the big stuffs such as war, the school violence, and terrorism and so on. They possibly get or have incorrect conceptions by hearing something at school or from the news. Parents can have a discussion with them and give them accurate information about the whole issue. Try to make the children feel comfortable by telling why these things happened and what is the adults are doing to avoid these bad things.
Actually, nearly every child has worries, but not everyone is willing to tell the parents what’s going on. As a result, the parents must spend enough time with the children and try to get a better knowledge of what is in your kids’ mind and don’t forget to offer help while your children are in trouble.
