Let’s move further in A2Z of parenting. Second Letter and Word Being, B-Betterment
Let’s accept it, We all want to be the best parent but, getting better is definitely difficult. Sometimes we don’t exactly know, where to start and what to change to make ourselves better. But, Change is the only constant thing. We all change with time and do feel ‘I am much better than some times ago or say a couple of years ago’. Awareness and flexibility help us getting better.
With Kids- We all want them to be better everytime they do something be it crawling, running, painting, studies or playing any musical instrument. So, what do we do is, we appreciate kids first for what they have done, for their attempt and tell them only one point to make it better. so, this way their confidence is boosted as well as they know that they can do it better than the present outcome. And they do try to use that trick or tip and make it better.
For Betterment, Appreciation as well as a tip/trick helps, both in balance, neither of these should be more, because kids get overwhelmed with both be it appreciation or improvement and it can backfire, so I try to be careful to put these in right quantity ( mostly in same ratio).
Let’s make this generation better, Let’s make this world a better place to live, all we have to do is small contribution. 🙂 I’m sure, there are plenty more things we could all add, and I’d love to hear what’s your take on betterment. I want to let you know that parenting is hard, and We do fail Quite often. But, We are the best parent to our Children. 😎

What an interesting series this sounds
Thank You Neelam:-)
I already like your blog idea pooja and I think I said it last time too. I do agree with your thoughts in betterment… we have to subtly make our kids understand that they can do much more. And noy only them, betterment applies to everyone… all of us r forever striving to become a better friend, parent, partner, daughter, sibling and overall a better human being.
I agree with you Kavery, Thank you so much for you time on my post 🙂
To give children a better world we need to show compassion. Your post is truly thought provoking.
Thank You Monidipa 🙂
You are absolutely right. Appreciation should be in balance or the kids get confused. Honesty is important too.
You are right Madhuji 🙂
Thought provocative post. We should always try to better ourselves or else we will stagnate and never grow.
Thank You 🙂
To make better place for our next generation we have to instill kindness, compassion and love in our children. Then only they have the better world for them. Like the way you explain.
