In today’s fast-paced world, kids are neck deep in sands of stress and insurmountable pressure to maintain their academic aesthetics. They are hell-bent on proving their worth in the eyes of every nosey aunty and also the parents who once compared them and tried to turn them into ‘a brand new version of Sharma Ji’s beti’ and beta.
Sometimes kids become too engrossed in the idea of excelling in every opportunity and activity they participate that their childlikeness gets compromised. They become extremely competitive and the slightest dent in the image they are striving to polish takes over their fortitude (mental stamina).
A recent study has revealed that how teenagers and tweens are falling into the pit of depression. Even little kids are falling prey to the hazards of the world of gloom, solitude, and despondency. Failures are not being handled in a positive light and stress is allowed to slowly wither their innocence and self-confidence away.
For parents, it becomes even more difficult to tackle such kids since they tend to get overtly violent and excessively sentimental, irritable, and moody. Assessing the nature of their caprices becomes a herculean task for the parents and the situation only gets aggravated in a due course of time, if left untreated or unchecked.
Being nice, warm and loving with such kids becomes quintessential. But there is much more on parents’ part that really needs to be taken care of. Let’s be little more aware of the healing process and all it takes to salve the mental predicament.
