Strict Parenting - Can It Be Harmful For Your Kids?

Strict Parenting - Can It Be Harmful For Your Kids?

You might think, as a parent, that if you behave strictly then your child will become well-behaved. But research and studies have shown that the opposite happens. Strict parenting leads to children who behave worse than others and they suffer from low self-esteem.

Some other reasons why being strict is harmful:

  1. Never learning self-regulation: Responsibility and self-discipline have to be learned by the children themselves. When you put harsh limits on them, they never learn self-regulation. If they think the limits don’t sound too harsh, they will learn to accept them. But the limits placed on them should never be controlling. If this happens, children see themselves as being controlled and no one enjoys being controlled.
  2. Instilling fearIf you are being authoritarian (parenting in which there are high demands and low sympathy) instead of empathetic, then your children will become scared of you. You are instilling the power of fear in them. This triggers a vicious chain of events. When you yell, they will yell as well.
  3. Anger and depressionAuthoritarian parenting often leads to children believing a part of them is unacceptable. They feel that their parents would not understand. It makes them susceptible to anger management issues and depression.
  4. Blindly obeying those in power: Children raised up in strict households start thinking power is always right. They learn to obey blindly. This makes them vulnerable to peer pressure. They also never learn to take responsibility for their actions.
  5. Rebelling: Children tend to be angrier and become rebellious when they have strict parents. The need to break free and not conform to the non-empathetic limits that forces them to act out. They might even nurture thoughts about leaving home and running away.
  6. Lying: Strict parenting creates excellent liars. Children learn to lie when they are in trouble. They think lies will placate their parents and they can get away with anything.
  7. Damage to parent-child relationship: If you are strict and you don’t change your authoritarian ways, then it damages your relationship with your children. Natural empathy is lacking in strict parents. You don’t understand your child, and your child doesn’t feel like sharing their lives with you. It creates a divide between the parent and child. Children never quite get over this as they grow older.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi my daughter is of 6 years old. And has problem of bedwetting. Eventhough she goes to bathroom before bed. And she drinks water after 10 PM. We have given lots of medicine and consult to the doctor. Pls. Suggest the solution.

Is this problem since begining or has started recently? I suggest you to stop liquids or beverages after 7 pm. Ask her to empty her bladder before she goes to bed. Consult your paediatrician for the dosage of medication you are using, some times you need to increase the dosage of the medicine till it works.

My son is 2 years old and does not want to eat anything dry, like biscuits, bread etc. He still wants pured food and does not chew at all. The only non pureed foods he prefers to eat (Swallow) is boiled green peas, cheese and corn puffs. But again, all these are melting foods when eaten. Please advise how to proceed?

Be patient with children. Every child has some peculiar habits, they change slowly over a period of time. But do not panic. Do not force, do not scold. Be gentle, be tactful. Time will come when he will eat everything. Let the phase pass by and soon he will develop liking and start eating things.

Yes it is safe above 2 month age. Only precaution is to avoid effects of high cabin pressure. You can eliminate that effect by giving" artificial nipple -soother" and or breast feed the baby during take off. Have a nice journey.

My son who is 8 years old, good in studies but while talking he is not clear in words. Like in Hindi he calls words SH, says "S" and "the" says "TA" While staring at him or correcting him, he corrects it Can you help me with speech therapist Thanks.

He may have mild difficulty in pronociation. If all other functions are normal then do not worry about it. It will also become normal wuth age. Be careful not to frequently correct him. Criicize him or make fun of him, because if you do this then your son will gradually lose confidence to talk freely and strat withdrawing or avoiding situation where he needs to talk.

Febrile convulsions are common in the paediatric age group, reason is due to irritability of brain due to toxins especially pgi group liberated during the infection, when seizure activity occuring only at the time of high fever, nothing to worry, give the antipyretic medication and cold sponging and adequate hydration at the time of fever, for further queries you better consultant a paediatrician.
