“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken adults.” – F. Douglas

What do you think of successful parenting? Do you consider parents successful when their child behaves well? Or, does it reflect on the child’s grades and marks? Well, if you want to be a successful parent, all you need to do is nurture your child’s emotional health.

Wondering how that makes you a successful parent?

Emotional health is what makes every person thrive. If you are emotionally strong, you don’t just live, you live life king size! And, by king-size, we mean that you are happy, truly happy living your life. Don’t we all want our children to be happy as adults too? The secret to this is to nurture their emotional intelligence.

Happiness is a spin-off of emotional health. When your child is emotionally healthy, he or she grows into a happy and purposeful adult. Let’s understand why.

1. Disposition

You, just like all of us, are born with an inherent and distinctive disposition. As parents, you might wonder whether this can be controlled in some way. The answer is no, but when you provide your child with the exposure and leeway that nurtures their potential. The way you nurture your child’s temperament determines his or her inherent happiness.

2. Passion

Encourage your child to discover her or his passion. When kids are passionate about something they work harder. When children follow their passion, it makes them happy like nothing else.

3. Strong Bonds

Grow a healthy relationship with your child. Connect with them on an emotional level and allow them to express their feelings. Connect before you correct them. Such a relationship fosters self-love and internal happiness. When kids are happy from within, they learn and strive to achieve new things.

4. Support

Mindful support builds persistence and resilience in children. They tend to persevere despite challenges and failure. Good days provide strength for the adverse ones, with your support. Focus on their effort and support them even when they fail. This helps them build resilience and grow emotionally.

5. Lead by Example

“Children learn more from what you are than what you teach.”– W.E.B. Du Bois.
Emotionally sound adults don’t cry. That’s a myth. They cry too, but they also find ways to get around things. They fail but learn from every failed attempt to strike back harder. When you show this trait to your child, he or she will learn by watching you.

In Conclusion:

There is no way to tell if a parent is perfect. But the parents of a happy child have indeed done parenting right in raising an emotionally healthy child. This happiness should not depend on external factors but come from within. That is when kids can preserve it even as adults. The way to find happiness within? Emotional intelligence.
