Education makes an individual independent.
Modern scientific education gives independence of thinking. One learns to think and think free. This reduces dependence on both ideas and individuals.
It is good to promote independence in a child at an early age. This will help development of good behaviors and attitudes.
Some parents want their children to act on their wishes. But it is good not trying to live a second life in one’s child.
Each child is a separate individual with his own identity. Children often have very significant psychological and behavioral differences from their parents. Life decisions of a child made by his parents can lead to negative outcomes. A child may later complain that why was he not allowed to make important decisions of his life.
With independence, your child tries to do things on his own rather than looking towards others for help or approval.
We often need help while living a social life, but one should not seek it unnecessarily over things that he can do by himself.
Independence would give your child confidence and initiative to make decisions and carry them out. He won’t be slowed or hindered by his dependence on others.
Children may be introvert or extrovert by temperament. It is ok if the behavior lies in the normal range and is not too introvert or too extrovert. Accept the temperament of your child. Help him make nice adjustments to his life in line with his temperament.
Extracurricular activities are also of great importance to children. Help your child select one or more extracurricular activities that he loves. This can go a long way in helping the future of your child.
Play company of other children is very important for any child. Let your children choose their friends. Also help them in having a good time with their friends.
One important goal of good teaching and tutoring is to promote independent learning. Independent attitude of your child will also help his studies. He will try to be independent in his learning. His behaviors will be like trying things on his own, learning from others and also seeking help when required.
Your children are also your responsibility. While letting them be independent and have their own life, it is also your responsibility to guide them. They are young and inexperienced. You must be there to help them in making important decisions.
