Effects Of Environment On Children

Updated on July 10, 2017

Importance of Love and Attention

A well groomed and mentally stable child is the asset for the future of not only his/her parents but also for the society and state the child belongs to. Every parent should learn about the basic and necessary steps to be taken while raising a child. When we look at the psychologically disturbed person whose mental condition has been due to the negligence he faced from parents, we can assume the gravity of the consequences a child could face due to such reasons.

It is about individuals who happen to be aggressive and mentally unstable due to the negligence of their parents, family or society etc. If a father is a drug addict or alcoholic with all his attention on satisfying his personal needs, then the child could more likely to be a very aggressive and criminal minded. Children adopt from their environment and surroundings.

Affection, Time and Devotion

Sincere affection, time, care and attention is necessary for a successful child upbringing. You cannot guarantee a mentally perfect child just by providing money and food to your children. You will need to give proper attention to your children i,e. Spend quality time with them, teach them about Dos and Don'ts of life, scold them if they are straying from the right path, whether it is their studies or social life. Parent should keep an eye on the daily movements and social circles of their children.

Be responsible parent and responsibility comes with many sub-categories which every parent should strictly follow to raise their children. Your precious quality time and care will build a positive personality in your children, let them feel that they are important meanwhile teach them to be a productive member of the society by contributing in different positive social activities. Try to set certain rules of their daily lives, try to teach them to be disciplined and humble throughout their lives. It is not a rocket science neither it is a 100% fool proof strategy, there are cases of several individuals who are mentally disturbed and possessed aggressive personality, although they had a very good childhood and overall life, such cases are in rarity.

But it does not mean that one should stop implementing positive practices, it is always good to be optimistic and this optimism should be transferred into your child's personality as well.

What To Teach?

Many psychologists and human mind study experts claims that what you teach your child is stays with them throughout their lives.

Parents who fight in front of their children, unintentionally makes their children habitual of aggression. Not only genetic traits and habits transfers into your child, but also some routine habits or acts stays in the mind of a child and could become a habit.

It is a responsibility of every parent to take great care in raising their children because their negligence could serve society with a pessimist and aggressive person.

Our children are our future and any serious negligence in their teachings could be a disaster of their personality building. In a present time where aggression and intolerance is being prevailed, we should be more cautious and attentive towards our children. All this could only be done if you care about your children and want to see them happy in their lives.

      Children do not choose their parents in this world. My mother divorced my father when I was a baby due to his mental illness. My brother had the same mental illness and would torment me. I learned to forgive my brother because he was mentally ill. He could not help it.

      My mother remarried a man named, Jim. He had Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)from the Korean war and took it out on us. My mother eventually divorced him due to his abuse. I learned to forgive Jim because I realized he suffered from PTSD All The Time. His abuse of us was simply an overflow of what was in his mind, always. I learned to pity Jim and wish him well. I also learned a lesson; do not go into battle.

      Find a way to forgive. Know that all abuse is a projection of the person and is not of you.
