Why Children Are Tricked by Parents

We were all children. What makes the experience such a pleasurable adventure? Kids, particularly young preschoolers, are frequently enticed by the seemingly convincing behavior of their parents.

Childish nature

Most people say that it is the childish nature to be impressed by the outer world experiences of adults. However, the behavior of young children is just as impressive, not to mention their vivid imagination.

Children are nature’s most abound creatures. Experiencing the love of their parents for them, one gets the most vivid imaginations.

When children face challenges, they transform themselves into spirits of stories for adults. In turn, we draw from our creative powers in creating our own fantastic stories for children.

Most adults, including many parents, meet children the way they meet Madame de Pompadour. Due to her house and surrounding, they have the friendliest allure young children. So, she is the most popular guide who creates the tykes’ imaginary scenarios and characters.

When parents see the difference between kids’ imaginations and their imaginations and the wild imaginations of children, they acknowledge that children look up to parents for positive guidance.

They become the role models of how to live life. Parents do need to know how to listen to ad profess. All this is critical to their children’s success.

One cannot escape children’s tendency to make the most of parents’ love for them. When children are not trusted, they become bewildered with adults. This inability on his part to respond and provide for his own needs will be reflected in us.

To curb children’s outbursts, parents have to completely understand the reasons why children react to challenges. The parents need to understand that children’s outbursts arise from their limited imaginations.

To get the full picture, one needs to know how children dream. In short, children’s moods and incessant talking remind them of stories they have heard or stories on the net. When children experience loved, safe and secure places for playing, they no longer need to act out their imaginations. It becomes ‘oding’ or imagination of their parents!

How children feel

To understand how children envision and believe as they pose questions or talk about familiar events, consider the following.

Imagine a parent telling you that, when he desires, he is safe and comfortable. “My bed is warm, and I feel comfortable in it. I sleep more soundly. My parents are there for me with much sincere love and care. I do not need to imagine there is a stranger who is there with me.”

Then imagine a parent told a wild story about lions and tigers. Bananas falling from the sky, 100 shoulders are high.

“I sleep soundly in my bed. One day I saw warm, scary, shapes and I lost my fear. They jumped me and pulled me and my body to the ground. I could not move. The warm shapes warned me not to get out of that bed. I fell and scratched my legs. I came back and felt better.”

While this story may be exaggerated, as terrifying as it may seem, this fantasy could cause vast damage to the trust of a young child.

“I feel warm, safe, and peaceful in my bedroom, and when I sleep soundly.” See the difference? How a child feels after knowing that his father or mother would like him to see his character in his sleep.

How children become imaginative

The professors have recently documented how babies’ brains develop. They perceive the world as the way it is. This stage of human development is known as stimulating. Although children do not need to simulate reality themselves for the very first time until about nine months old, they do so long enough to prepare them to correspond their curly thoughts to what they see. Currently, children are unable to perceive the abstract. Though for some time, this is what they are ready to do. The early complex simulating of the world to others by nature may follow from the images for the first time at age two.

In a nurturing, safe, flexible, and cooperative functioning family, a child can enter into emotional bonding. The feelings a child gets for kindness and responsive care-taking are part of the natural stimulus gathered each day in an active play-sets and his friends.

To put it quite simply, a child needs to be told what he is feeling. To take it a step further, he needs to know how to recognize those feelings, to ‘act’ upon them in the way he (she) has been taught. In other words, our job as parents is to know how we feel, what others feel, and as a natural part of this process, allow our kids the ability to tell us.
