Parents think and feel that they are the parents and they know what is right from wrong. However, children are unlike their parents. Every child is different and he or she has her own way of thinking. They also have their ideas and expressions. Surprisingly, they can have some great ideas about some issues that even their parents do not know. In other words, children could be the “inventors” of some ideas to provide solution to the most difficult problems!

This is the time when parents should think and introspect on their present attitude. Do they need to forego their pride and superior feeling? Yes, they may need to set aside their feelings and start listening to their children, at least for sometime in the day. In fact, it is good for both of them.

Allow your children to share and express their ideas. This will help them feel endowed and empowered. They also feel that someone is actually listening to their ideas. There are several benefits to an endowed child. Language and vocabulary skills, problem solving, creativity and better communication are some of the brain boosting advantages that your children will accrue by letting them sharing their own ideas. Last, who does not need a cordial family, where everyone has the right to express their minds and opinions? Have a great day.

Thought for today:
"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new." - Albert Einstein
