It is often said that attitude is everything.

This is especially true when you are teaching children.

If your attitude towards teaching is to discipline the children into doing what you want them to do, then you will be frustrated. It will be a constant battle, you against the children.

But if your attitude is to understand the children, and finding the best ways to teach them according to their bent, then you will enjoy teaching more. You will not be fighting against the children, but you will be working with them. You will also begin to love the children for who they are, and not as subjects that you are trying to change.

    That’s very true. I think a lot of people’s problems stem from their attitudes. I often wonder if I have an attitude problem, and then try to fix it.

    Parents have to work with their children as soon as the kid is born, the first 5 years are very significant.

    Thanks for your comments, Elliot and Jimmy.
    A lot of our difficulties in raising children stems from our attitude and approach.
