“With children… it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.”
Children do not like when we converse with them with expectations in our mind. Since children have least ego,thus they immediately perceive vibrations of expectations. We should converse with them without having any expectations. Love exists where there are no expectations. Thus, instead of expecting that, ‘My son will take care of me in my old age, he will retain and enhance my reputation in the society’, it is advisable to think, ‘God is there to take care of me always’.
