Parenting Success Today In A Complex World

By: Pierre Du Plessis

Parenting success in rearing children or being a parent is the most neglected area of training in the whole wide world. If you have a child or going to have one, it will be your task to rear, teach and lead that child for about twenty years. So, rearing a child is most definitely a career for all parents, apart from the professional career path you have to follow for financial survival. If you have more than one child, you may need to be in the career of being a parent, for a period of 30 or 40 years, depending on how far apart your children are borne. The question is: how can you achieve parenting success as a parent?

Rearing children is the most common and universal career on mother earth for most human beings. It is the occupation with the highest membership and yet there is virtually no training available on parenting success, how to be a good parent or how to improve parenting abilities. Have you ever heard of a College or University running such a course? Have you ever heard of any other Institution running such a course? Yes they are there, but very few.

Being a parent simply means you have two careers, one of being a parent and one of being the provider of life amenities.

With little help and information on parenting success or how to be a better parent, you are being left out in the cold by the whole world to figure it out for yourself. Can this be true?

It is fairly common knowledge what must be done to provide in the physical and physiological needs of children like food, medicine, clothing, shelter, toys and schooling. However, when it comes to the intellectual and mental development of a child, things become blurry and not so clear-cut any longer and this is where available training leaves a huge deficiency gap in the society of mankind. Every parent is in high need of training in the intellectual development or intellectual upbringing of their children, in a world where there is little of such training available. We can aptly name it training in Parenting Success or Parenthood Leadership.

Possible subjects to touch on in such career training in Parenting Success or Parenthood Leadership could be:

Parenting success in helping your child with disciplined love in basic hygiene matters.

Parenting success in helping your child with to move, walk and co-ordinate muscles and body limbs.

Parenting success in helping your child improve reading, writing and counting abilities.

Parenting success in helping your child to understand religion of the world.

Parenting success in helping your child understand the civilised values of this world.

Parenting success in helping your child develop cognitive thinking abilities.

Parenting success in helping your child develop ethical values.

Parenting success in helping your child understanding human health and fitness matters.

Parenting success in helping your child explore possible lurking, latent talents.

Parenting success in helping your child develop special talents and interests.

Parenting success in helping your child to build up confidence and self-worth in thinking processes.

Parenting success in helping your child understand the political systems we live with.

Parenting success in helping your child understand the financial and competitive economic environments we live in.

Parenting success in helping your child develop creativity and dedication simultaneously.

Parenting success in helping your child to understand what it takes to be successful in life.

Research on the internet about available parenting advice and information for parents on parenting success or how to successfully rear and treat babies, children, pre-teens and adolescent teenagers, has revealed a wide and extensive database of articles and products on the subjects of successful child development, successful child rearing and successful parental influence.

One can find informative literature on most topics dealing with the problems associated with the normal developmental stages of childhood, including treatment of child health disorders.

Most parents are fit and equipped to deal with child health related matters such as child nutrition and child illnesses, due to the abundant availability of facilities and information on these subjects from hereditary word of mouth contacts, clinics, health centres, the pharmaceutical industry and the medical profession. Here parenting success is easy.

Child cognitive, intellectual and psychological development can be a culmination of genes, circumstances, environment and parental influence, of which parental influence is the most dominant and critical factor to impact on child development and behaviour. With the right knowledge, parental influence can also be the easiest to apply for the beneficial development of cognitive, intellectual and psychological processes in children. Parenting success here can become easy with the right knowledge.

Most parents are not equipped to use parental influence in the best positive way. The reason behind this is simply because they marry young, have children and are then caught up in the everyday chores of child rearing and financial survival, deterring them from finding time to equip themselves with the necessary knowledge, to impact positively on child cognitive, intellectual and psychological development. Therefore child development is mostly a result of accidental development by prevailing haphazard circumstances and child inner-self choices.

Child development is not a sole responsibility of schools and teachers. Children are far more influenced by parents than by teachers. Parental influence is the single most important factor in the development of children, especially so in the early stages of development.

Most parents, after years of parenting, when their children have already reached adulthood, when reflecting back in time, say they wish they could do it over again. If they could do it over again, they think they could do a better job of parenting, with all the knowledge, experience and wisdom they have accumulated over the years. If they could only possess the knowledge earlier, when their children needed it the most, their children could also have ended up being stronger and better persons.

Information for parents are now more readily available, thanks to the internet. The information covering all the stages of child development, from birth to adulthood, are however, widely spread out in different pockets on different web sites all over the internet and cannot be accessed without extensive research and cost. Leaders Circle Family Web Club has therefore bridged the gap by bundling products together, to cover all the stages of successful child development, successful child rearing and successful parental influence, in one place. We have also created a Free Parenting Business Franchise for Schools and energetic Entrepreneurs in the form of a combined online/offline business opportunity.

My wife and I have gone through the parenting cycle ourselves. We know how difficult it can be and we know what we are talking about. We have four of them, all now happily married with their own offspring. We had to pay for four car write-offs, caused by our two sons and two big wedding functions for our daughters, all in a short period of eighteen months. But boy oh boy, if we could just have had this helpful information and bag of knowledge in our younger days!!

The best of success with rearing your child.
