There is no real formula in raising children. Yet the most important thing to keep in mind is that children are very different individuals. What works for one child might not work on another. It is best to be sensitive to the needs of a child based on his or her personality. In this way, we acknowledge that each child is unique from another.
Discipline always plays a huge role in making sure that children are made aware of their responsibilities. Later on when they grow up, they become well rounded individuals. Kids also need to be encouraged to develop their social skills and learn to play and interact with others to learn about positive values like camaraderie, respect of others, and cooperation. Kids who are not very well adjusted with people later on have problems dealing with their peers as they grow older.
Talent is also an essential aspect that a parent must support to develop. Kids who have exposure in the performing arts and other special skills like music and painting, sports and others are more confident than children who were not given opportunities to develop such skills. Over all, the most important thing in raising children is letting them know that they are appreciated and loved for who they are.
