Why not to label kids?

Kids are curious creatures. They want to know everything about everything. This is the stage of life where they learn and start to understand the simple things in life. And it’s our responsibility to nurture them and motivate them for all that they do. The brain of the child is in the development phase as the child is 5-6 years old.cycling with hubby
Every individual has his thought process set in the childhood. This is because the learning happens in the early years of life. Therefore we should never talk negatively with our children. We must never tell them they cannot do it, or taunt them if they’re unable to do such a simple task. Even if done in a playful way, the words get set into their minds and they start to believe in the same. That’s a major disadvantage because they would write off tasks and accept defeat even at times when they are capable of doing it. We need to take precautions in talking to them, and always remember to talk in a supportive manner, by which the confidence of the kids gets boosted and they feel like they can carry out any given tasks. This habit is essential to be inculcated in the children as once the child grows up, the chance of learning and adopting new perspectives towards life are scarce.

There are various ways by which we can teach them to live by a positive attitude.

One would be to show them the way to do the task. We can help them in doing simple tasks just by showing them how to do it once. I did one post on Organizing Tips | This Will Help To Get Your Child Organized
Let’s take cycling, for example, if a parent takes the responsibility of teaching the child how to ride a bicycle, then the kids takes interest and learns faster. Similarly, if a parent doesn’t take the time to teach the kid, the kid may not develop an interest in cycling and hence would not like to ride a bike when he/she grows up.
All these factors depend entirely upon the economic situation of the family, and the family environment. We need to keep the environment fresh and stress-free in order for the kid to be open to learning new things.

  11. can I agree more! And I mean it is so important not to label them and providing them a healthy environment to learn and grow 🙂

  12. Oh yes!! Positivity is very important virtue to be inculcated in a child from a young age. Also they learn by observing. So practice before preaching is important too as you rightly pointed out.

  13. Loved your post. It is our duty to help our kids in learning and development

    Very interesting topic …this world is filled with negativity, violence and suffering, a positive attitude can make life more manageable. Although it’s impossible to fully control life events, you can control your reactions to what happens. This attitude enables you and your children to develop the strength to deal with life’s challenges.
