Uninvolved parenting and children

Have you ever felt like you have been an Uninvolved in the life of your child ? ,

well don’t worry this feeling happens to everyone and this is probably why you

are visiting this blog post.With everything that goes on in our daily lives such as

work and other activities , we might just forget that we need to spend the much

needed quality time with our children.

 

Spending enough time with them will allow them to connect with us and create a

strong , valuable bond with them which will withstand the taste of time.If you are

feeling like you haven’t been as involved in your child’s life cheer up, because in

this informative post will talk all about it and find ways to become a better parent.

 

 

 

What is Uninvolved Parenting ?

 

In order for us to fully understand this topic we must know what it means.

According to the  whitenswanfoundation , it was stated as a style of parenting

in which the individual tends to be involved with their own lives that they tend to

unknowingly ignore the needs of the child. From the above definition we can

deduce that this kind of parental style may not be used willingly but happens  as

a result of being to occupied with other things.

 

 

 

Is This a style of Parenting ?

 

Even though we might think that it isn’t because of the above definition it is

currently being used by many people today, this style is adopted for various

reasons for instance it might be due to the pressure that is being experienced

within the relationship or could be as a result of financial hardship.

 

However I feel that its possible for a guardian to adopt this method of parenting

due to the fact that they might have gone through the same thing when growing

up, thinking that getting what ever there children want will fix that separation

when in reality it doesn’t work like that. This method is not the only method of

parenting out there, the three other types are namely Authoritarian, Authoritative

and permissive which will be looked at in more detail in my other blog post.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Patterns of Uninvolved Parents

 

Because this style is unintentionally done , there might be a few traits that you

might what to note about to check on whether or not you have adopted this

method.Here are some of the characteristics below.

 

1. Might Act emotionally distant from children

 

2. May have little or no time to attend to the emotional needs of the child

 

3. They Don’t show any interest in the young ones productivity such as not         

    attending plays or parent-teacher meetings

 

4. They don’t really show the responsibility when it comes to teaching their child 

     how to behave correctly

 

 5.  Lastly they have a very weak connection with their children.

 

 

 

How Uninvolved Parenting Affects Children

 

So what are the effects on children with this kind of parenting ?, will children that

grow up in such kinds of homes can be affected in many ways and here are

some of these below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1.Lack of Guidance

 

Growing up in this way will cause a child to start fending for themselves from a

very young age, without having the knowledge about what is right or wrong. This

will cause them to do things that they might regret in the future, that being said it

is a parents responsibility to make sure their children grow up the right way.If you

don’t take up the challenge to show them what is right from wrong they will

eventually have to learn this on their own , which is not what any guardian would

want to see.So keep trying as much as you can to bring up your kids in the best

way you can.

2.Might Lead Children Down The Wrong Path

 

Yes this is very true, because they weren’t receiving any guidance or moral

support from home it can cause them to learn things on their own as mentioned

in the post above.With the growth of technology and social media it makes it very

easy for them to fall prey to the influence of what society has to offer, which can

lead them down a path that is not right for them.

 

Meaning that they can easily become very addicted to drugs or even very

abusive towards other people,so as their guardians try as much as possible to

lead your young ones down a path that is right for them. Make it your goal to do

so and even when you are far from them they will still be able to remember the

things that you had taught them, this will allow them to be more accountable for

themselves and help them be honor people in society.

 

However am this doesn’t mean you have to monitor each and every thing they do

but it means you just have to make sure you show them what the right thing to do

is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.Lack of Self Esteem & Self Confidence

 

Those that are brought up in this manner may experience a lack of both self

confidence and self esteem, this can be due to the fact that the very first people

that they meet when they came into the world are not showing enough care

towards them.

 

Growing up like this will prevent them from reaching and achieving there full

potential, it will also have a negative effect on the ability to make decisions and

believe in themselves.So as a parent you are your childs first teachers which

means you have to be with them every step of the way in order for them to

become relevant people in society.

4.Emotional Unavailable

 

This is another effect that Uninvolved parenting has on children, they tend to

become emotionally unavailable.By this it doesn’t mean that they don’t show

emotions but they don’t have the ability to express themselves in the right

manner.Just like the inability to express themselves correctly will have a huge

impact on there well-being both emotional and mentally, this unavailability can be

as a result of the lack of the emotional connection between them and their

parents during there time growing up.

 

Having a strong bond with them is very essential as it allows them to open up to

you about their problems much easily,this gives you a chance to guide them even

further.Emotions are what make us human, so don’t deprive your child the right to

hugs and all the love you can give them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5.Loneliness

 

Although this has already been hinted in other points, its an important reminder to

all of us that them might feel isolated and alone.This feeling may come about

because of the lack of family support which had been stated previously,this can

cause them to become secretive towards you even when they could be dealing

with something very big.

 

So having to spend time together as a family can be a good thing to do, even

though you might be busy try to make sometime for our children as it will benefit

you as a family unit.

 

 

6.Excelling in Schooling

 

You putting off your children’s concerts concerts or plays will only make them feel

like you don’t value the effort that they put in and this can have a very huge

impact on how they perform in things like academics as well as other projects

that they would be taking part in.

 

Having low self esteem and low self confidence will make it harder for them to

express themselves in the community.so that being said showing them that you

are always going to support them well give them the boost that they needed.
