Introduction

Childhood is one of the happiest and memorable phases for any human being. How much ever we grow and reach heights, we always remember our childhood days. We want to go back and enjoy it one more time if we have lived it fully. If it was traumatized, we don’t want to think about it. The same applies to our children as well. If we allow them to explore as many things as possible without many restrictions, but with healthy boundaries, they will grow as a happy and successful person. Shall we provide a healthy environment to our next generation?

1.Allow the child to cry

Crying is the first mode of communication for kids. If we ask them to stop crying, we are asking them to suppress their emotions and they get confused as their emotional needs are not met with a sudden pause on their cry.Allow them to cry , so they can come out of the stress and discuss their problem with us. Let them cry and express.

Shouting is one of the basic behavior of any child. Please avoid punishments or any threatening to stop the shouting; instead, use positive guidance. So, the child can express their feelings and at the same time will understand as they need to avoid shouting, which will happen gradually
