It is said that children today are very happy, living well without worrying about being hungry, and wearing nice designer clothing. In addition, a lot of children are born the only child, and they will feel that their families spoil them, which makes most of the kids really happy.
But is that really true? The truth is that behind this abundant “material” life are children who undergo a lot of stress that no one else knows, even their own parents. This story below, which went viral on the internet some years ago, will be a lesson for every parent.
“Dad, I’m very sleepy, can I take a nap? Just one minute,” whined his 9-year-old son. It was 11:30 p.m., but Mr. Huang still urged his son to do his schoolwork.
Although he heard the boy’s words and believed that the child was very tired, Mr. Huang firmly refused his son’s request.
“My dear, wait another half hour. After finishing this page, we can sleep. Shall we?” Huang said. His condition was not possible to continue working, but because he had to, the child continued to do math assignments by enduring sleepiness.
When Mr. Huang went to the kitchen to pour milk for his son, he found that the little had fallen asleep on the table.
Thinking that he could no longer force his son to study, Huang immediately carried him to bed so that the child could sleep well.
However, it never expected that the boy would never wake up from his sleep. This incident immediately hit the family hard.
The hospital gave the diagnosis: “Sleep deprivation for long periods, excessive mental stress, and physical exhaustion.”
The boy’s mother was devastated and cried after hearing this explanation from the doctor. Huang regretted the situation, but he could not turn back the clock. This made the boy’s parents sink into deep despair.
Who said children today are happier?
I hope this case will serve as a warning to all parents to reduce stress on their children! Excessive pressure and study will only backfire, especially the following consequences:
1. Letting children lose their childhood and find it difficult to get happiness
Faced with such heavy stress and schoolwork, can children be happy? Childhood is supposed to be carefree, but it is difficult for children to face all of that to be happy, difficult to build a healthy character, and difficult to grow up healthy.
2. Puts a lot of stress on the child, which is not conducive to healthy growth
They do homework every night until midnight, and they spend all of their time doing online schoolwork and special classes. They simply don’t have any time of their own. It is too depressing and not conducive to the healthy development of a child.
3. Makes children feel tired and rebellious
With endless classes at the school online and stressful exams, will the children’s grades improve?
Everyone should know. Putting a lot of pressure on the child will only make the child tired of studying, it will even make the child rebel.
I hope we can all give our children a happy childhood and let them grow up healthy.
