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

One thing about kids is that they are naturally creative. They will find a reason or excuse to let the pain go.

There is a child rearing technique called Love and Logic which follow this way of thinking. It teaches self reliance. And you seem to be teaching him to be positive and not look at himself so seriously. This can help him to not stress out so much too.

On the very basic yes, and give them a lot of lesson and advices, but of course I will let him outside to figure out things in his own with a firm fear in God and with a established character in Christ... so whether I am looking or not I know he will do the right thing because he knows there is a God who watch over him. God bless you all.

It is not good to command the children because it impart fear in them. You just need to advice and encourage them to get grown into a self disciplined child.
