Children are for certainly a blessing and a gift from God, but occasionally, the mistakes that parents make while raising them up, frequently leaves parents to regret later. There are several crucial things a parent ought not to overlook to teach his or her child. In the sense that, if you don't teach your child about those things, you will end up to regret it later.
You as a parent have to bear it in mind that raising children is a task and if we fail to complete the task, it will definitely tell on you, as you will regret it later for not teaching them what they meant to know.
You will regret it later, if you don't educate your child these 6 things;
1. Teach your youngster not to conceal secrets from you.
Teaching them not keep secrets from you might only be achieved by the way you relate with your child. Some parents are have this rigorous approach towards their child and that most times, force their children to fear telling them any secret about themselves. As a parent attempt to establish a friendly closeness with your children or they will continue to conceal secrets from you, which may result to an incidence that will bring regret to you later.
2. Teach your youngster to be religious.
You should teach your youngster to know more and have the correct knowledge of his faith. Having a true knowledge of his religion allows the child to have a good defined behaviour, as in, no religion promotes stealing, killing, raping or any social vices or crime, moreover, excellent qualities like respect, honesty integrity and so on are addendum a youngster may acquire when he is religious. However, if you fail to do so, you will finish up making your youngster mannerless, which you will end up to regret later. Therefore, you will regret it later if you don't teach your child to be religious.
3. Teach them about the essentials of life.
When I refer to the fundamentals of life, I'm referring to marriage and education. When a youngster is younger, he is introduced to education, and as he grows older, he is introduced to marriage.
As a result, I believe that marriage and education are two aspects of life about which every child should be fully informed, as they stand to make numerous major mistakes if they do not. Furthermore, any mistake made in education or marriage is considered to be costly, and if they end up making any of those mistakes, it will undoubtedly leave you to regret later. So, in terms of education, teach your child to read, and in terms of marriage, teach your child how to love.
4. If you don't teach your child who your enemy is, you will come to regret it later.
Yes, I'm talking about your adversary, because if you don't teach your youngster who your adversary is, you'll come to regret it later. When your enemy tries to hurt you and fails, he will most likely go after your children, as if your enemy gets your child, he has gotten you, leaving you with nothing but remorse. As a result, you must show your child who your adversaries are so that he can try to avoid them on his own.
5. If you don't teach your child how to save money, you will come to regret it later.
What might a person possibly achieve if not by saving? To be honest, not everyone who went through childhood learned how to save money, which causes parents to be disappointed because the child would be unlikely to achieve anything. So, believe me when I say that if you don't teach your child how to save, you will regret it later.
6. Teach your youngster about the joys of childhood.
When a child reaches adolescent age, there is a special excitement that makes them gullible, in the sense that they can easily be deceived into wrongdoings such as smoking, drinking, night clubbing, following bad gangs, and doing other amusing things that appear to tamper with their future. However, letting them know these things are wrong at an earlier age, before they reach adolescent age, could help them avoid these mistakes. Otherwise, if kids grow up and adopt those negative habits, you will simply be left with regret.
