What is the VERY WORST thing that parents can IMPART to their children?
I would have to say the worst thing to pass down to your child is YOUR NEGATIVE VIEWS of others. Like how you feel about certain people, races, religion, what ever it may be. If you force your bigotry down to your child then you are not giving them the best possible chance out there for them to be able to succeed.
I think the worst thing, is selfishness.I think that the children should be caring and empathetic to others to make the world a better place.
Never saying you are sorry. So they inadvertently relay ego comes first over the quality of relationships you have with others.
Never showing you are human-with both strengths and challenges.
Never sharing the lives they had before you came along as it both takes away your cultural identity yet also allows you be freer to become more you-if that makes any sense?
Failing to teach them to control themselves and their actions, that just because you have a thought doesn't mean you should say it or act on it, just because you want it doesn't mean you should do it or have it.
Inability to take care of themselves. While still at home, some kids have the extreme misfortune of being punished and stomped on every time they take it upon themselves to do something. Then when they're forced out on their own, they wind up on the bottom rungs of society, and have no idea why, or what to do about it.
I would say the worst is neglect. A parent can be poor and yet still take a child for a walk or talk with them. Some parents just feed and clothe a child and the parent thinks that's enough. It isn't. Children are human beings. They need attention to feel like someone is interested in them. You don't have to have a car or even much money to have a close relationship with a child. If there is a brook nearby, take them fishing. Teach them how to bait the hook. Small accomplishments for a child is a big thing. A home made tent in the summertime in the back yard even made with sheets, is fun for kids if they have a friend to be there with them. Kids should learn how to cook simple things around the age of 12. Hot dogs, toast, eggs. I did that with my grandson, took him fishing, went for walks. They like to feel good about themselves, and whenever they learn how to do something new, it is important to let them know you are proud of them. Neglect is selfishness. It is a mind-set of parents who want to do what they want to do and put their kids on the back burner.
