Raising a kid or kids could be stressful but one needs to always remember to teach them Godly manners so that when they grow up they won’t depart from it. Parenting demands much effort and time, once you’re a parent, you have to learn to put your priorities below your children’s, and to make the sacrifice to spending more of your day caring for them than you do caring for yourself. Of course, you shouldn’t neglect yourself completely, but you should get used to the idea of putting your child’s needs first. Encourage your children to talk, helping them express themselves early can help them communicate successfully in the future.
“I always have a disagreement with my husband on the way he’s raising our child. Any time my baby misbehaves, my husband will be so furious and beat him in such a way that his hands will appear in his face. I have told him times without number, he wouldn’t listen. I’m not the type of mum that overpampers a child and I believe in discipline, not maltreatment. He started when this boy was 7months, he slapped him because he refused to eat and spit it on my face etc. I can’t help raising my voice whenever he maltreats him which is too bad. Please, I need help, I don’t want to raise our child in a wrong way where it will seem to him that I’m supporting his bad character.”
Dear Worried Wife,
You need to take it easy with your hubby, maybe the environment he was brought up might be contributing to it. Maybe he was brought up by parents that beat kids in any slight mistake. Advice him calmly when he’s correcting the kids. Teach him to give punishment some times not beating everyday. Don’t raise your voice at your husband in front of your children, it will make them see their father as been a wicked man while mum is nice. Please explain to him peacefully when he is happy that hitting them always is not the best practice. Remember that “Love and affection matters not beating. Sometimes you can use other methods like when you guys want to go out, the child will not go with you, not watching his favorite TV shows and many more. You can as well read books on handling children and be prayerful. In all I wish you the best.[yop_poll id=”780”]
