Some parents cannot understand their children’s behavior, especially at the primary level. It wasn’t because the child is becoming misbehaving in the house or disobeying the parents. The main reason is the external or internal factors that contribute to child’s stress. Parenting is the tough thing to do in raising a child. Though they need to understand why their child is so stressed out.
Children are also like the adult ones. They experience stress from school, environment and even in the house. Stressors need to identify before judging the child. It wasn’t because they are under the spell of tantrum episodes. It affects their ability to think when being pressured by stressors.
That’s the reason why parents need to understand that children can be stressed out. They need to balance of being strict to their children. In some occasions, children are manifesting rebellious acts because they were not being heard by the adults. Parents should know how to reach out and listen to the child’s sentiments.
There are some parents insensitive to the needs of their children emotionally. In most cases, parents are only physically present to the children’s needs such as providing the tuition fees at school, daily allowances, clothes, food, etc. These are not enough to support child’s needs.
The emotional needs go along with providing some good advice such as the needs of accomplishing something at school, people that affect their lives, insecurities of something or someone, knowing what puzzled them, etc. It is a two-way process of learning between being a parent and a child. Parents can learn from their children and vice-versa.
This concern is not also limited to the parents. It should be learned by the teachers in school. Since the children are being catered by the teachers all throughout their lives. It is a not perfect world both parents and teachers should work together to boost the confidence of a child to face stressors. It will build their way of dealing with the stressors that affect them.
