Modern fathers sometimes do not understand what a big role they play in raising children. Of course, financial support and child safety are very important, but this is not the main thing that a good father can give them. He should be not only the breadwinner, but also a good role model, and a source of emotional security for his children.
Beneficial masculine influence helps boys gradually become strong courageous men. Girls, in the upbringing of which the father takes an active part, later reach puberty later than their peers and grow up as self-confident independent women.
Unfortunately, many fathers who cannot reach an understanding with their children blame the children for this. They believe that their bad behavior, changeable mood and self-doubt are to blame. Continue reading
When we hear the word “co-dependence”, first of all we imagine violence in the relationship between a young man and a girl. But the point is not always this. It’s hard to believe, but the strongest co-dependence is in the relationship between one of the parents and the child, and not between the guy and the girl. In the co-dependent relationship of parents and children, the line between protection and obsession, between normal and excessive involvement, is greatly blurred. It is very difficult to find co-dependence in the relationship between one of the parents and the child.
Consider several signs that will help determine co-dependence in the relationship between parents and children.
1. Co-dependent parents show victim thinking
We all face life’s difficulties, but the co-dependent parents believe that others (especially their children) are to blame. Often parents instill a sense of guilt in their children in order to get sympathy from the child for their negative experiences and, ultimately, to get the right behavior from him. Continue reading
Even if you can never see the world through the eyes of your daughter, this does not mean that you cannot establish a strong relationship with her. If you want your daughter to grow up a confident girl, she needs the support of her father.
Many fathers feel insecure and even experience little fear when they talk with their daughters about their appearance. Often fathers think: “How can I help? I don’t understand anything about this. ”

Instill in her faith in her own strength – this will help her cope with various difficulties in the future and increase her self-esteem.
Form your daughter’s positive attitude towards her appearance Continue reading
In the eyes of children, parents are higher beings. This imposes a great responsibility on them, because their task is to raise children kind, polite and comprehensively developed. An important role in this is played by the atmosphere in the family: it determines the quality of the relationship between all its members.
The family is a world of relationships, rules and traditions that people establish in order to get along together. Deliberately or unconsciously, many parents make mistakes in raising children. But over time, these errors develop into negative habits. They lead to the fact that children become weak and unsuccessful in life.
Careless words and actions of parents can harm children. But to convey this idea to the parents themselves is very difficult: often they do not notice obvious facts and refuse to admit their mistakes. Continue reading
Adults forget what it means to be small in the truest sense of the word. Reading to children books about Alice in Wonderland or Gulliver in the country of Lilliputians, we can imagine how the creatures feel, many times smaller than ourselves. But when we were children, we ourselves felt this fully.
As we grow older, our body and psyche develop simultaneously. Therefore, with the development of the psyche, we tend to forget the feeling of how to be small in the literal sense. It is amazing that we do not remember the most significant change that happens to us in life – the growth of our body. And it can be significant, especially in adolescence and youth.
Ever since primitive times, we subconsciously perceive superiority in size as a sign of strength. This is especially evident in young children: for them, size and seniority are equivalent concepts. They tend to believe that the higher you are, the older and stronger you are. If children from an early age understand the connection between growth and level of development, they feel confident and do not offend those who are younger or shorter. Continue reading
