Affection and intimacy aren’t enough to up bring your children. Without adequate awareness and knowledge, parents can’t raise their children properly and soundly. Many parents misunderstand the concept of raising children; they believe that if they cover all their financial commitments, whether paying for food, clothing, school fees, and other demands, they have done a pretty good job and fulfilled their role as parents. The truth is that the entire commitments mentioned earlier form one thing about family support, yet raising children is a totally different process. Most parents treat their children with their fatherly and motherly instincts like passion and care; however, what’s really demanded is for them to act wisely so that they avoid the damage that results from over-spoiling and inefficient punishment in case of misbehavior. As far as animals are concerned, instinct alone is more than enough to raise their off springs, yet for parents, instinctive feelings aren’t enough to raise children unless they are associated with knowledge and wisdom. Some parents unintentionally make things worse for their children when they interfere to solve problems for them. Of course, when parents interfere in such situations it is only because of their extreme love and care. However, not realizing certain details about the problem that this child has gone through makes such interference hindrance rather than asset. Parents usually focus on the mistakes that their children commit rather than focusing on the motives that caused them. Usually, such mistakes are done because of the parents themselves! Many parents exert a futile effort while raising their children. Here, some wisdom saves a lot of effort and suffer during this process. Unintentionally and without being aware of it, sometimes parents actually ruin their children. Blind love and intimacy might be fatal.
