3 Reasons why comparison is not good for your child

Do you ever compare your child’s behaviour, progress or health with the other children of the same age? If so, you are causing stress for yourself and for your child. Comparison is a common approach to a certain the performance of your child. Then you resort to giving example of other children’s accomplishment as a way ‘to motivate’ your child. But in this intention of motivating her, you harm her more as her confidence stoops to low and she develops a low self esteem. Our proparent Riddhi Doomra has shared three reasons for why you should not compare your child to others.

absolutely correct... why shd we compare?only a single word dt ur too good dear will mk our child more better.. Our attention will gv a lotzzz of courage to them... so instead of comparing we should gv more time more attention to our babies dt dey can enjoy dere childyy tym to d fullest as it will never come again...
