10. Let Him Be Himself.
Being a gentleman is when a man honors himself and is confident in his skin. Accept your kid for who he is, because every human being’s journey is different. Your son may not be good at science, but he could be good at creative arts. It’s crucial that you allow your son to do things in his own way because if you force him to do something he isn’t good at or he doesn’t like to do, you will sabotage his confidence.
Help him understand his individuality because this way he will learn to be confident in things he does and will be able to overcome any challenges in his pursuit to be a gentleman. Let him connect to his own needs, and eventually, he’ll connect to the need of others. Praise him for every small achievement and give credit for his good behavior; he will be encouraged to come up with solutions to problems. Remind him to be proud of his achievements and accept the things that he cannot change.
You all agree with me that being a parent is the most sacred and happy thing in life. However, there is no such thing as being a perfect parent, but through educating their children, parents also gradually become better themselves. Showing your son the path to be a gentleman also evolves you into a great person.
Show him the importance of love and care. When a boy is raised in a loving environment, he knows how to give that love back and understands that it’s about being a true man who is gentle and loving.
