To be good for their children, parents should teach them the qualities and habits to be more independent, so that later, even if they walk alone in life, they are not afraid of falling.
1. Know how to manage emotions
In October 2021, a 5-year-old girl in Hunan, China got stuck inside an elevator when she was alone. The girl was very calm, did not cry, but used a smart watch to call the fire department. Eventually, firefighters located the girl and brought her home safely.
The 5-year-old girl was later praised by many parents, for her calmness and ability to manage emotions even at a young age. When she was in danger, she showed no fear. If I could only cry then, maybe things would have been different.
Education experts assert, children can be angry, upset … because it is a normal emotion, but parents should teach children how to recognize emotions, learn how to handle and resolve them properly. , instead of losing control and hurting yourself and those around you.
When children know how to manage their emotions, later they will be independent enough to stand on their own two feet and strong enough to do what they want.
2. High AQ
AQ stands for Adversity Quotient, the index indicates the ability to overcome adversity, unhappiness, hardship… referred to as the overcoming difficulty index.
Kamimura Ryo, a Japanese, was in kindergarten when his mother was diagnosed with cancer. Seeing his mother struggling with daily pain, the boy came up with the idea to jump over 10 stacked wooden steps on graduation day. If you succeed, your mother will have to promise not to despair but to fight bravely to the end.
A month before graduation, Ryo’s mother’s illness took a turn for the worse, forcing the Kamimura family to move back to Nagasaki. Takachiho Kindergarten immediately held an early graduation ceremony for Ryo so that he could fulfill his promise to his mother.
That morning, in the presence of all teachers, students and parents of the school, Ryo faced 10 wooden steps. The first time, the boy failed to jump. For the second, third, and fifth time, Ryo wiped her tears and continued to dance but still didn’t pass the challenge.
“Come on kids, give Ryo strength,” a teacher said. Immediately, the students of Takachiho School ran down to Ryo’s side, forming a circle shouting, “You can do it! You can do it!”. Finally, the miracle has come. For the sixth time, Ryo successfully jumped over 10 wooden steps to the applause of the whole hall.
Many parents ask: Why is AQ so important?
For children with low AQ, when they fail, they are quickly discouraged and give up everything. While children with high AQ, even when faced with difficult challenges, they always have the courage to overcome. Fall and then get up again, always full of faith in the road ahead.
With such children, even if they grow up in the middle of a wasteland, they will bloom into the most brilliant flowers.
3. Understand the true value of money
From the moment children start to talk, Jewish parents teach their children to distinguish money, teach them to understand that money can buy what they want and more importantly, where it comes from. The fostering of a sense of money and economics begins when children are 3 years old, parents will make an appropriate plan for each age of their child:
From 3-4 years old: Learn to recognize types of money, appreciate the value of money with the help of parents.
4-5 years old: Buy simple things under adult supervision.
From 5-6 years old: Teach children that money is not easy to earn, to get it must work hard.
From 6-7 years old: Can count money, know how to “unplug” to save, foster the sense of “this is your money”.
From 7-8 years old: See and understand the value written on the product packaging by yourself, can compare with the money in your pocket, judge whether you can afford to buy that item.
From 8 to 9 years old: Understand how to deposit money at the bank, can work for themselves to earn pocket money such as selling newspapers, polishing shoes, doing housework…
From 9-10 years old: Know how to properly allocate the money in your hand, when you go to buy goods you can bargain with the shop owner, when you sell things yourself, you can earn every penny to learn how to trade. Do not underestimate the value of a coin.
From 10-12 years old: It is not easy to personally experience making money, so there must be a certain sense of saving.
From the age of 12 and up, children can engage in business just like adults.
Jews teach their children how to manage assets not to turn them into a money-making machine and then spend money, but to help them have a better life, appreciate money and labor.
Modern society has no shortage of people in their 30s and 40s who still cling to their parents and never grow up. In these cases, the fault of the parents is mainly.
All love in this world, its purpose is in gathering, there is only one kind of love, its purpose is separation, that is the love of parents. Parents can grow up with their children, but the future path they have to walk on their own.
Too much love and pampering will bring many consequences. No matter how much money or vision, parents should train their children to be independent and self-reliant in life.
