In the modern world of disintegrating families, parent-child relationship has become an important matter. Parents bring the child into the world and then it is their duty to take care of the child in every possible way; first in the matter of health and diet and later in the matter of education and getting established in life. It is true that most of the parents do their best to bring up their children in the best possible manner and if anything is found lacking , it is not often because of any negligence or lack of will on their part but because of their lack of knowledge or resources or both.

Children want attention from their parents, but if the only attention they get is negative, they will settle for that. Parents tend to pay more attention to their children when they misbehave. That only makes them misbehave more, because this is how they can get the attention they deserve. Some parents even though having all good intentions and longings for their kids, tend to ignore them because of remaining too occupied in other affairs such as business , kitty parties , social work , attending clubs , etc . The result is that, the children of such parents crave for love, affection, attention and they feel neglected. Sometimes, they may feel depressed or grow aggressive or ill-mannered.
As the child grows up, he should be taught good manners from the very beginning. Good habits and good thoughts should be inculcated.
Children are found copying their parents. So , the parents , for the sake of their child , at least , if nothing else , give up all the bad habits like smoking , drinking , gambling , talking too much , abusive language , etc
The communicative power of the children should be developed by encouraging them to open up, otherwise, they may feel slow of love and affection such that they get spoiled. Like other good parenting techniques, even setting limits is necessary. But a common mistake that most of the parents make is by being too strict! Kids need opportunities to explore and learn.
Let the children grow at their own pace: PARENTS HURRY KIDS OUT OF DIAPERS INTO ACADEMICS AND ON TO THE JOBS. “IT’S A DEEPLY BAD ASSUMPTION THAT CHILDREN WHO GO FASTEST GO FARTHEST!! “
