Raising children in a me-first world (ii)

This is the second part of our discussion. In the previous article, we examined some important things a parent should inculcate into children in order to become considerate and selfless in our self-centered world of humanity. 

Let us now go straight to other things parents can do. 

Make a habit to remind your children often of their responsibility to care for others. Humans are given the responsibility to care for others, even though they may not be their siblings. Help your children understand that the world is not here to serve them. Rather, they are here to serve one another so that when they grow up, they will find life peaceful. However, keep in mind that this should be done with a loving heart. 

Help them understand that they must show genuine gratitude for whatever they receive from others. Whether or not they receive a gift from a sibling, they must learn to express their heartfelt gratitude over the giver and the gift. Make it clear to him that he is not entitled to anything so he must show genuine appreciation for anything he gets.

Recognize what he does and appreciate him for that. Children do more when they are appreciated even for the little they did. Parents, please give genuine praise to your children as this will foster his desire to do more kindnesses toward others. 

Educate your child about the in-person conversation. In today’s world, social media platforms are taking over in-person conversations and so many have been immersed in this way of life. Help your child understand that the internet is not meant to immerse him in conversations where he would rather be present. People appreciate it the most when their friends make out time, even if they don’t have much, to converse with them. The internet is not an object to manipulate kids (including adults); it is designed to be manipulated through research and other vital information you may need from it.

It is challenging to raise self-less, considerate children in a me-first, self-centered world. But by the same token, it is rewarding to do.
