Are You A Careless Parent ?

Most parents want the best for their children and will work hard to make sure their progeny have the best of everything.


But, with time, knowingly or unknowingly, parents may get careless in the care of their children. Improper parental care lead child to become unhelpful. If a child misbehaves, lashes out or doesn’t focus well at school, a lot of the behavior can often be  linked to poor parenting practices. A careless mother can trigger some very detrimental effects on a child’s life.

Whenever a parent displays little to zero concern about the welfare of their child or children, they are probably careless and unfit for

parenting in general. This is often tied to a lack of help or support for their child’s education.

Effective parents take care of the emotional needs of their children.  They nurture them with kind words, encouragement, active listening, kisses, hugs and time together. These things can nurture a child and provide him with positive and healthy self-esteem, the confidence necessary to thrive in life.


If a parent doesn’t offer any of these things, their children run the risk of lacking confidence and importance in the world.

Emotional abuse can be traumatizing and can lead to serious psychological impacts that stay for life. Examples include threatening, yelling, insulting, humiliating, ignoring as a form of punishment and comparing a child negatively to others. To be good parents, it’s important to provide your children with an environment that’s safe, stable and peaceful. One sign of careless parenting is fighting with other people in front of your children – whether with a husband, other family members or friends. Exposing children to an unstable and sometimes violent atmosphere can instill fear in them at an early age and lead them to believe that’s an acceptable way to live.

If a child doesn’t has proper supervision or someone to look after her in her daily life – whether it’s about her eating dinner, going to bed

early or doing her homework on time – she’s likely suffering from a serious case of parental neglect. If a child is always in a frightening and unstable environment where he has to walk on eggshells due to not knowing when his mother will next explode into a fit of anger, the mother is unfit and careless in her role as a parent. This also indicates a lack of clear rules and understanding in a household. If a child doesn’t practice good hygiene and no one is there to help her or guide her, she probably has a careless parent. Proper hygiene encompasses regular showering and brushing teeth, having clean hair and wearing freshly washed clothing.

Children are learning everything about the world they live in from a fresh family’s perspective , this is why family is considered sociologically as one of the agents of socialization .Children acquires their cultural and moral values through interaction with their parents including their behaviors whether good or bad. Psychologists believed that the attitudes and behaviors or response of the parents towards their children has a great implication positively or negatively on the mental development of the children from childhood to maturity.

Speaking of being controversial and why it is the case, he quotes John Travolta saying “that this is the worst time to be a celebrity with the advent of social media. What we do right now with all due respect is really beyond Africa. Its not continental anymore, it has a global appeal. I represent the continent to the world. Controversy is something that finds you, you don't find it, it is a mysterious propensity. I have a knack for speaking my mind, a knack for doing something completely out of the norm. My philosophies are different, I can't do the conventional, I can't be conformed, I don't go with the band wagon, I cannot be affiliated with a group or persons or philosophy or idealism. I never go to do press on my own, the point is it finds me not because I welcome it, but because I exist in an industry where I want to benefit from without allowing the effect of the industry to rub off on me. When little is known about a person that is in the public eye, things will be created in order to fit that gap, and a lot of times they are blown out of proportion.
