Every parent wants their child to become a great personality and in the process want to do everything possible by them. There is a rat race right from the time parents put their little ones in the pre-school to chase 'marks' as the whole education system is based on 'memory' & 'reproduction'. I was asking a old education expert how the pass mark was decided as 35? He told me that any human being is expected to reproduce at least 35% of their memory. In Vedic period when there were no media like printing, all knowledge were memorised and reproduced verbally! For example the Mahabharata over 100 thousand verses were memorised and reproduced to posterity! Hence knowledge is 'Memorising' was the understanding of mankind for ages. Alas! see the distortion of key aspects of life due to ignorance.
One of the wrong belief of parents is 'The schools will mould their children personality'. Unfortunately the education is not intended to form the personality as it is intended to provide some information such as earth is in the form of a sphere etc. Personality of the young ones are the result of what & how the parents behave in front of their children.
In this series on parenting I would like deal with the specific behaviours of parents which affects the formation of undesirable personality traits of their children. Look forward to share the tips for 'Parenting'.
