He is growing up..and I need to put what I know and heard into practice. I fear I may not be able to keep up with this undeniable challenge of keeping him safe!!
I don't want to keep him on a metamorphical umbilical cord, but I am simply reflecting a concern of an anxious and paranoid parent!!
Now a days; he thinks he has become independent and can do the stuff on his own and I want to but not really able to prick it!!!
The question is do I really have to???
Good parenting doesn't include providing them with the bumpy surfaces always. Where everything bumps up without hurting them, getting the false sense of security!!
; At the age of 6 I would go to my friend's house alone and come back on time without getting into trouble... But then I became a mother, a super anxious parent...my approach has been always risk-averse. Now I have to think at what cost? What about his self control? What is risk averse? How, when and why it is affecting his senses??? Would it be leading to emotional backdrop???
Protecting you child is one of the basic instincts of Parenthood, but if Children never experience the challenges, don't expect them to overcome it on their own. They are loosing the grip of self control on their own lives!!
🌼 DECISION MAKING:
When they take risks, it means they are running through the decision making phase.
Each and every single attempt to go through this process makes them stronger!!!
Experts says Practice and more practice help the young risk-taker learn to balance assertiveness with respect and compassion.
It boosts their confidence and comfortness towards taking risks and learning from the failures!!
🌼 VOICE OPINIONS
When they socialize, sharing idea of the risk
Might be challenging. As they don't know how much risk they should take and how people gonna behave? But when you allow them to decide up to what they gonna go far, it's easy for them to handle the situation.
Playing outdoors requires a good amount of reasonable risk-taking, but staying indoors puts our children at an even greater risk for health issues and motor and sensory delays.
For instance, the next time I will see my child attempt to climb up a chair , I would let him do. You simply have to be present and spot if necessary.
Overtime, as our child masters this skill, slowly we should phase out. Overtime and with frequent opportunities he will become strong, independent, self controlled.
Practicing reasonable-risk taking is great on the outdoors!!!;
PS: I just hope he is not thinking of jumping from that tricycle!! I mean I just hope so!!! 😋😋😋
