Raising a boy is not easy task specially not in this world where they get addicted towards gadgets,games etc.Whenever I attend any functions or at parks, I can see a lots of parents give mobile phones to children to keep them busy so that parents can talk to others .Is this a solution ?no never , instead of that you should make them introduce to people who are talking to you.Whenever I attend marriage function you can’t find me in those wedding album because I would be with my son who is hyperactive ,he never sits and always running so I take one pic of ours and keep my bag with my in-laws so that my boy can enjoy those surroundings and when he gets tired he will be with me .I make sure he enjoy himself thats my happiness.
As I m also a learning parent like you all.I can suggest you some ways to raise our boys to be good.The most important part is doing our karma in a positive way.Let us leave all our frustations stress to a god thats not possible at least we can try because he is only one who would heal us and make us more strong
Let your son know about the importance of God As a parents it’s our responsibility to raise them in a good manner and teach them a good foundation and have a good relationship with God which would help them to take a step to success.Its not at all late or early to teach them about god ,even when they r not listening your boy will thank you one day.
Visiting of temple or church.I always try to visit temple with my son every weekend.Do visit temple or church let them feel it’s environment .Beside the learning about god they will also learn to worship God and how to serve others.Your boys are likely to find friends who are blessed in his life.We should also tell them the stories of each god, their power and how they defended evils ? Children loves stories.so this is a exact time to tell them thru story with expressions.i really loved telling story to my son with expression and when learnt about stories in school he would tell my mom told me this story . Let them pray with us Praying a god is talking to a god we can talk to him as much as we can share our good ones so make them sit with us and let them pray to God .If they don’t know teach them how to pray also teach them to thank and praise the god for their happiness 😊.After coming from school my son get fresh and sit with his grand mother to pray and at night before sleeping I make him to pray and to thank god .
Always be present ,listen and communicate.Boys have so many to share with us as a parent we should listen them.Then they will feel to share each and every moment with us even if they had committed any mistake or fault we can be friendly make them understand nicely and we can also share our childhood memories .
Family life is very important.Our society is getting dull day by day we can see a lot of broken homes that is broken lives.Peoples are getting easily distracting by phones ,tablets, videos games extra curricular activities and job, they dont get quality time to spend with their own families.Sitting in a living room with your boy while you are on internet does not make you present. Sit with your boys talk to them about schools ,sport and the topic they want to discuss with us .My son always keeps on saying about his school his Friends and mainly about the national geographic channel which he watch regularly I also sit with him and watch.
Be an example. Be a kind of person you would like to your boy should be in future. That is always be positive ,keep smiling ,be punctual, share your funny moments with friends which make them happy, respect elders,help those who really need help always be happy, do not lie and if ever has done any wrong then correct it.
Be vigilant. If we as parents had kept some rules for our children they should maintain it .It’s our responsibility to know with whom they are hang out with and about his Friends and their families.I have a younger brother we have 6 years of age gap and he is also my son . Till now I call my parents to know about him if he goes any where I ask them to note his friends contact number. It’s not that we don’t trust his friends but keeping it for their Safety. We should make a schedule chart for our boys at what time they should watch TV or they should play and make them sit with you for dinner.And should not allow them to break the rules made by you.this will be helpful for their future .
GratitudeNow a days we can see so many bad things happening around us.Instead of focusing on positive side people are only focusing on negative of each and every thing they come across and they become sad ,depressed and negative .So this is the only reason god want us to focus on him.When we watch the news of people being tortured bruised seriously it really makes us pain.Children should watch news but now a days we can’t let them because it impacts their mind negatively.So I just share the good news or knowledgeable news with my son.We don’t want our boys to become negative .We can teach our boys to grateful .We should be grateful for them when it is really needed.they need it.they take it too seriously next time they do it their own thing .
The people in our society become so selfish to serve elders or the needy people so we should explain our kids about the importance of serving to people by example like helping neighbors to carry their groceries , participating in activities and helping elders . They can also help you with small chores in home .In that way they will feel the parents hardwork and responsibilities towards their home.We should appreciate our kids for helping us in a positive response .
So nurturing your boys in a troubled world is hard but we can make it possible with our positive and confidence with a patience .
I hope you will love my post and also share how you want to grow your boys and how they should be like . Please leave your comments . Stay blessed all
