'Becoming a parent' is one of the most natural and relatively easy things on earth. However, 'being a parent' neither comes naturally nor easily. We are overwhelmingly happy when a child arrives in our lives. But soon we are overwhelmed by the daunting task of having to raise that child.
Children don't come with a handbook. For every parent it is all uncharted territory. We have to learn every step of the way.
But most of us are either in a state of denial or get defensive when it is suggested to us that there are ways and skills that we can learn in order to do our job as parents better.We usually do not want to hear anybody who tells us about better ways to do and say things because most of the times we feel that our ways are the best ways!
It is true that the relationship between a parent and child is a private one. And it may not seem right to tell a parent as to how he or she should raise his or her child.
Having said that, would you not take a road map to a new destination instead of just trying to go round and round wrong paths looking for the destination? Similarly, if there are proven ways and guidelines to parent a child, then why not learn and use them instead of learning through trial and error.
