Each parent has a set of rules that takes into account when it comes to children’s education, but some of these are available in most families: the child should be praised when he does a good thing, the little one should be polite with their brothers and the list goes on. But did you know that there are certain rules in children’s education you have to break because they have the opposite effect? Here they are the three rules:

1. When two brothers are arguing with each other, it is best to separate themFalse

It’s better for them to fight than to play quietly, but separately. The statistics indicate that brothers are more likely to quarrel with each other than with other friends, because they always know they will be there for each other, regardless of what would happen. It can be really painful for parents to be witness of all the fight scenes between their children, but the wisest decision would be to let them unfold. The studies have shown that the children who are separated and let to play alone will not develop a long term relationships with their brothers. Instead, children who are left in their will even if they have misunderstandings, in the future will have a stronger connection. The best thing would be to try to find activities that appeal to both of them, to try to prevent as much potential conflicts.

2. It is not good when the child lies False

Even if honesty is the quality that every parent wants to establish in his child, experts say that lying can be quite beneficial for children. Children who manage to hide the truth prove that they are sufficiently developed in terms of cognitive order to fix in their mind both the idea of truth and an alternative to it. But everything has a limit. From the age of seven years old children should give up this habit. Instead of punishing him for the little lies he filters from time to time, you could have a productive attitude. The punishments will teach him how to hide better the truth, but if you explain him that lies hurt you and that you will feel much better if he recognizes the truth, then you are more likely to have them away from this habit. And this is because children are very concerned in pleasing their parents and receive feedback from them.

3. It is good to praise your child oftenFalse

The statistics say that if parents continually tell the child how smart he is, they risk not getting the desired results. It is normal for a parent to try to increase the confidence in the child, but if you will praise him of anything, he will not know how to react to difficulties. The explanation is simple: if when he carries out simple things you’ll praise him constantly, when he will face more difficult situations he will give up from the start, because his impression will be he is not able to carry the matter to the end. Therefore is better to praise him constructively. Tell him how glad you are when he finds solutions to complicated exercise, challenge him by giving him tasks that stimulate his mind and encourage him even when he faces difficulties.

Finally, it is good for parents to keep in mind these three rules in children’s education they have to break so the little ones grow harmoniously.
