Many mothers dream of a bright child. But, despite all the parenting tips and tricks, there is no definitive rulebook on how to raise one.
On the other hand, some parents don’t need to turn to parent psychology articles and forums, and their kids often end up being little geniuses. We decided to learn their secret and discovered several important rules.
8. Reward Independence
In some families, parents are convinced that their children will succeed in life if they believe they can do anything. But it is much more important for children to understand that they can do everything by themselves.
Thanks to this mindset, children will know that they are not only going with the flow but shape their future.
7. The Outer is Not Everything
Another important difference lies in the fact that future geniuses never focus on the exterior.
The truth is that keeping your child clean and tidy on the outside takes a lot of effort and time from the parents as well as the child.
Wise parents consider it useless for the personal growth and development of the child to keep clothes always clean.
Children themselves don’t care at all what they look like.
6. Accepting Untidiness
Children are often surrounded by the chaos that does not bother their wise parents. They understand: children are messy, they drop things, they spill everything around them.
So instead of harassing their children for the clutter of the rooms, they allow them to live in the way they find comfortable, explaining why tidiness is useful to them with time.
5. All Energy Runs Out Eventually
Some parents can spend all day running around telling their children, “Don’t climb over this!” “Do not touch that!” or “Take it easy!”
Wise parents of such energetic children find it important that their children leave everything out while they are young. That way, as adults, they will have more confidence and perseverance in all their endeavors.
4. Wise Freedom
In fact, many things are allowed by resourceful children. Even another drawing on the wallpaper is seen as a sign that a child has the artistic potential of a great painter.
However, there is a line that even these children cannot cross: disrespecting the family. It may only take a judging look if he dyes your cat pink, but insulting a parent will give the child a much harsher punishment.
3. Dad is the Leader, and so is a Mom
Respect for parents is taught from an early age. All children in the home know that their parents are the leaders and that everything she does is less important.
Therefore, children never depend on their parents to do or obtain something for them, but instead try to do things for themselves.
2. Child Self-Control Exists
Instead of punishing a child for taking something, it is better to establish rules that guarantee a certain benefit for correct action.
If a child doesn’t think closely in terms of restrictions and punishments, he learns to correct his behavior for his own good.
1. Nothing Goes Unnoticed
Modern psychologists advise you not to praise your child for any scribbles, thereby stimulating his development. Still, the parents of future geniuses are convinced that any achievement must be rewarded.
Even if that mother’s son brings her a napkin with unrecognizable scribbles all over it, she will find a pattern and proudly present it as a painting to the rest of the family.
