Just Keep Moving: Encourage Your Child to Stick It Out When the Going Gets Tough

In life, there comes a point of utter hopelessness where you feel like giving up. But the mark of a really strong individual is that they will refuse to accept defeat and keep their head high. You’d want your child to also develop this resilient spirit. And if that’s the case, here are a few ways in which you can guide your child develop an attitude to keep moving ahead in life.

Redefine failure:

The fear of losing keeps many kids from trying. As a parent it is your duty to make failing as an essential part of learning process. Teach your kids to accept defeat as constructive criticism. “The only failure is not trying” should be their mantra. Motivate them to look beyond what has already happened and and to take lessons from bad experiences.

Cultivate passion:

Preschoolers develop interests that can be easily cultivated into passion.That curiosity of unravelling the secrets of the universe keeps them motivated to see the world differently. Never undermine their need to ask questions. This helps them build confidence to develop a positive mind set.

Be a role model:

Your children look up to you. What you do means more than what you say. So inculcate the ‘never-say-never’ spirit in everything you do. Don’t put up a perfect image, though. It will create immense pressure for them to be perfect too. Let them see you struggle a little, but eventually overcoming the obstacle in your way.

A positive attitude towards challenges will help your child face them with courage and not be deterred by them. For more such tips on parenting, speak to one of our doctors about the Jiva AyurBaby program today, dial 0129-4040404 or click on ‘Speak to a Doctor’ in the Jiva Health App.
