Parents are the main characters in the child’s life, and we have our greatest impact in the first years of their lives as mediating agents for their learning and education.
Within the integral development of the child, some research shows that parents and the environment in which their children are raised, are the ones that help shape their personality and provide them with the main tools to develop at a personal and interpersonal level in their present and future. The lessons they learn as children will help them in the social sphere.
Parents as mediators, help to form values, norms and rules of behavior that will affect the child throughout his life. These principles will help him in making decisions and will create in him a self-awareness of how to act in a variety of situations.
Don’t worry, the role of parent is developed and learned, it is formed with the birth and growth of children. How the task of parenting is carried out can be learned from other adults and role models. Education can vary by culture and our own way of thinking and seeing the world.
In today’s society it is even more necessary than in the past to pay close attention to emotions, that is, to listen to, respect and give importance to what a child feels instead of focusing on his or her intellectual capacity. Few parents focus on their children developing a healthy emotional state. For the present of their lives and for their future, it is not enough to have an intelligent child if he or she is not emotionally stable and has low self-esteem.
