Should you command your Children?
When my son pours out is pain to me, I just say cheer up. I never told him " See,I told you so". I would rather let the youngster know that heartbreaks are likewise part of growing up and that I will always be there help them pick up the pieces. But explain to them that it is not every time that I am around.So a precaution is given to them.They should also learn to be careful every time.
I never give command to my son.I allow him to try to figure out and guide him with a course of action that make sense to him.Letting him go with his decision sometimes tap his wisdom and see if he could done better out of his choice.
It is also help to maintain a good sense of humor,not to make light of things but to help us get through the tough times
