Positive Parenting

Recently I came across a short story about a little girl. The girl and her father were crossing a bridge. The father asked his daughter, “Please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.” The little girl said, “No, Dad. You hold my hand.” “What’s the difference?” asked the puzzled father. “There’s a big difference,” replied the little girl. “If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go.”
This small story gives a very big message. Most of us will agree that children today are practical, focused and mature than the previous generation. They trust us and follow us on many occasions. They realize many small things that we do or don’t do for them. Parents have a great impact on their children and children do tend to grow up like their parents. Research has shown that parents are powerful role models for their children.
