Child Psychology in Twelve Easy Lessons
In order to affect the mental condition of a person – to alter their view on a topic or to look deeply within oneself to determine the cause/effect relationship – one needs to have a special insight into psychology.
One might ask why this would be so and in an instant I would reply that if we advise and educate in the first years of life we will be laying the groundwork for future success in all areas of life.
And so with this in mind I would like to post some respectful advice on the rearing of children.
- If a child is continually criticised, he will tend to condemn others unfairly.
- If a child is reared in a hostile environment, he could become violent.
- If a child is ridiculed, he will become shy and introverted.
- If a child is made to feel a sense of shame, he will develop a sense of guilt.
- If a child's parents show him tolerance, he will learn to be patient with others.
- If a child is encouraged, he’ll develop confidence in his own ability.
- It a child receives honest praise for good actions - he will learn to appreciate goodness in others.
- If a child is treated with complete fairness, he will develop a sense of justice.
- If a child has security in the home, he will develop trust.
- If a child’s associates show approval of his efforts, he will learn to respect his own personality.
- If a child is treated with friendliness, he will respond by radiating love and goodwill.
- Remember that an adult is only a grown child. Apply these principles to adults as well.
