Lagging Maturity and love with family

7 to 11 years

My kid is 10 yrs old and is lagging in Maturity in small things which I find very common in his age group kiddos. I feel very sorry for him when he gets cornered by his friends for this reason, sometimes. Also he doesn't care much for the family members and also i feel he is least concerned about their happiness or interest. Don't know how to react .....

hi Mukesh Ji! I do understand your concerns! I believe it won't be right to assume that he doesn't care for his family. may be he doesn't know how to express his feelings. he will take a stand for his family at the right time if need be. as far as being mature is concerned, let him fight his own battles, the more support he will get from others , the more dependent he will get on them. prepare him to face the world by allowing him to take his own decisions. even if he chooses the wrong one, the message would remain with him for life and he won't do the same mistake again. praise him when he makes efforts and does something good. avoid criticizing him. let him know you are with him, no matter . u will guide him throughout but he has to take his own decisions. hope this will be of help to u!

Hi shiksha ! thanks a lot for that positive feed. you are right with what you say but I m afraid that whether he is loosing his bond with the family and his younger brother, he is just interested in his own thoughts and is self concerned. But I will definitely try in your way and hope fir a change ..... Thanks again
