There’s no such thing as an ideal parent. For those new to parenting, the pressure can be overwhelming and confusing. While the methods deployed by their parents are most likely to be considered outdated, new systems may seem perplexing and challenging to imbibe.
The popular consensus is that children are curious, and more often than not, they will find out about truths that adults try to keep from them. It is therefore advisable that parents talk to them about complex subjects, instead of them getting information from friends or the internet.
"The support system that parents form should not be used to decide careers of children, ever. It should be supporting them and giving the children the freedom to choose their own careers, however outlandish or immature it may appear at the moment."
Storytelling plays an important role in shaping your child’s overall personality as it teaches them many things about the world and life. Therefore, it is crucial to their growth—not just in terms of vocabulary or reading ability but also in terms of their overall ability to think, empathise and imagine.
