Would You Like To Build Good Habits Or Pamper Your Child?

by Lakshmi Sakthi Alagappan 05 Mar 2022 1 comment

Given a choice in the digital age, where everything is instantaneous, would you prefer to pamper your child with all materialistic benefits and irregular/ bad habits or prefer to follow the old school approach of discipline and development of habits. As a new age parent, our outlook is to let our child free to act, think and talk. Although this is a very important quality to develop independent thinking, it does not mean you leave them unsupervised at their free will.

A habit is a behavior that has been repeated enough times to become automatic. Habits are not formed overnight, through several iterations of trial and error and repetition, they become a part of us. Our belief system defines our habits, a system oriented approach focuses on continuous improvement rather than a specific result.

Don't underestimate the importance of making small improvements on a daily basis. The best example to understand the statement is a sports person training to become an Olympic champion. Here success does not happen instantly, it is several years of training, efforts and good habits that result in monumental success at Olympic games.

A system is a process-based approach that leads to results. Behind every system of action, there is a system of beliefs. If you believe your child should not be forced to do a task, subconsciously you encourage your child to leave homework incomplete, procrastinate learning for tests etc. A systems approach of good study habits will help you develop a learning schedule, say 1 hour in the evening for completing homework, 1 hour for revising lessons and bed time story book reading. Despite all the efforts and study habits, if they get only average grades, appreciate and reward them for being consistent in the process-based approach rather than looking at the results and discouraging them. Year on year this approach would result in a continuous small improvement and finally a breakthrough.

Not only for academic but also encourage healthy habits for children like healthy eating habits, having healthy food and at particular time , physical activity , less screen time and also social skills.

Benefits of building good habits:

  • First and the foremost benefit is the child starts doing the daily routine on his or her own.
  • Developing a positive mind-set as the child grows.
  • Opportunity to face more success in future.
  • Possibility to speak only the truth as we live with people who are around us are selfish and self-centered and dishonesty.
  • Building good habits for your child boosts confidence and responsibility in all aspects.


Think about how you can contribute in developing a system-based approach for developing good habits in your child. Each child is unique, there is no standard template that fits all. As a mother, understand your child and identify habits you want them to change and develop. As a parent, I vote for building good habits for our kids as they must understand the efforts and pain taken from the parents for holistic development of their children.

Being pregnant with twins is one of the most awesome and exciting and indeed a blessing to the family. My reason for coming to comment here is to share my experience with Dr Anokokudo who helped me in getting pregnant. I am presently a mother of twin girls and I love my babies very much. My name is Diane and I am 36 years old. After 9 years of marriage, my husband became a brute and a bully. He dealt with me because of my infertility and a means to bear him a child. I experienced so many tribulations that I prayed to meet that person who would change my situation and that was how I came in contact with Dr Anokokudo and now I am finally a mom. My husband could not believe the day I showed him my test results of being pregnant after I contacted Dr Anokokudo and this made me very happy. He stopped his attitude and changed his behavior. I delivered at OhioHealth Grant Medical Center Dec 23

at about 11:21am. My first girl Sonia weighed 5 pounds 8 ounces and my second girl Shantel weighed 8 pounds 13 ounces. Getting in touch with this man will really change your life and believe you will be happy too. I am here today to manifest this good work and I appreciate your work sir. If you have also been looking for ways to get pregnant or trying to conceive, this is the right choice.
