Potential of children
In Consulterapia, we believe that kids are like mines full of gems of incalculable value, and only through an affective upbringing and an emotional as well as intellectual education, can we discover these jewels, polish them and make the shine for the good of humanity. Our kids have been born with all potentialities inherent in them, and it is we as parent who must help them, motivate them and guide them to develop each and every one of these potentialities to their maximum possibilities.
The responsability of the parents.
The task of being a parent is without a doubt the hardest and most complicated one in this world, apart from the professional jobs for which they have prepared us for years. We haven’t received any systematic and explicit training of how to be parents, how to be good parents and how to manage the different roles which we have in life, without being negligent with our role as parents.
However, our work as parents of our children will be crucial in the emotional and intellectual formation of the beings which we most love. It is because of that, that it is important the we educate ourselves in the difficult while at the same time enriching task of being a parent.
During the upbringing of the children, there usually is a great number of doubts and problems for which we need professional advice, as traditional conceptions on child rearing and education have proved not be healthy nor effective to create good habits, stimulate their self-esteem and motivate them to achieve in their studies.
Let’s bear in mind that each family is different, each kid is different and unique within this family, so there is no magic formula other tan LOVE and acceptance and respect for the diversity of each member of the family.
As we see, in order to be parents we need to be creative, flexible and above all lovable with our children. All children need comprehension, compassion, affection, motivation and consistency, as well as kind and respectful limits. These are the building blocks with which we will build the identity of our kids.
