Why we should not compare our children with others.

Do not compare your children with others. It is a very common practice amongst parents to compare their child with another sibling or other children; including their cousins and neighbors.

By thinking that giving this example to your child will make them become more motivated in either mirroring positive behaviour or perhaps matching similar traits, or even surpassing certain skill sets with these individuals will work, it does not. It will usually back fire.

Generally, children do not respond well to this. They will become resentful and negative towards the idea and also towards those people and sometimes even towards their own parents.

Consider letting your child explore their own inner qualities and strengths as you continue to guide them in finding their own uniqueness every day. They will become more serene and begin to believe in themselves and their own abilities instead.
