By their success, we always mean materialistic success and by their happiness we always mean by temporary happiness associated with material gains. What we fail to understand is that, materialistic success is not the real success and may not lead to true happiness. Success has some deeper meaning associated with it. If as parents, we really want our children to be happy, successful, satisfied and balanced individuals, we should go through the following points and introspect ourselves and evaluate if we are on the right track.
• First & foremost point to remember is that we should never compare our child with other Children. Comparison always brings dissatisfaction. When we compare the two things or two individuals, we limit ourselves to the thing or the individual which is better. Never compare your child with other children because it will limit the unlimited. Every child is unique and has his own special qualities and unlimited potential. He has his own strengths and weaknesses. He may be excellent in one thing but extremely bad in the other. We have to accept our child as and how he is. Neither we should tell him about his weaknesses again and again to improve him nor should we boast off his strengths because both these things will only push him down. Rather, what have to do is to nurture and polish his strengths furthermore and support him with his weaknesses to unlock his possibilities for a bright and successful future.
