Discipline: the necessary bad


Dealing with early childhood fear causes many parents to think more than necessary because they often overlook the cause itself, its origins and causes.

Discipline: the necessary bad

First of all, let us say that Fear is a necessary, important, and useful ability of all states with advanced nervous systems. An animal that can be afraid is able to defend itself more effectively when it comes in the face of hostility or a dangerous natural phenomenon. Fear makes it possible for animals with advanced nervous systems and, of course, people to choose the best escape or avoidance tactic in a given situation. In many ways, human fear resembles the fear of higher animals: like the wolf or the monkey, when we are in danger, we choose between two strategies: either fleeing or attacking. The incredible complexity of human brain, imagery, memory and thinking also make people more diverse.
Unlike animals, we have to deal with the mental thought of fish at a very young age, which is, according to psychologists, the root of all our anxiety. However, anxiety is not equal to fear. If we are anxious, we are afraid of something that is not threatening at the moment, or if it is threatening, the situation is not as serious as it seems.Anxiety is considered to be the emotional component of fear, that is to say, a subjective condition that is unpleasant to the person, tense or nervous. This is usually accompanied by physical symptoms, rapid heartbeat, sweating, and possibly shaking or heartburn.
Its function is to inhibit a person's activity and to provide a thorough understanding of the environment and his or her resources to deal with anxiety. In other words, anxiety helps one to adapt to the environment. It is well known, for example, that babies stop in front of a greater depth or that they begin to fear strangers at the age of 8 months. These forms of anxiety are all useful, but in today's complex society, some forms of anxiety (such as anxiety from speaking before others) can cause many problems to those who are anxious. an unambiguous, conflicting task, or facing a situation where we are not sufficiently experienced. In such cases, we feel that our capabilities are not sufficient to solve the problem. In many ways, the spiritual system of modern man is always Prehistoric, that is, we have barely come up with the "run or run" alternative.
It follows that Our fears are misinterpreted and handled in a significant proportion of cases. We bag them or dispose of them, and we generally do not have the right toolbar to silence ourselves. All of this leads to the development of strong anxiety in many, many life situations, which often develops into a psychiatric illness that determines the quality of life.
Do not be surprised that we cannot always handle the fears of our children properly. Generally, it is human property to overwhelm most people with failure when we experience something else that is of concern to us, and that is easy and unclean to us. It is our primary concern that we protect our child from all evil and pain. It is understandable that few can reason, remain calm when they think that their children are living with serious concern. Unfortunately, they are mostly disappointed. Different psychological schools and educational theories often contradict each other in this question.
There is an approach that considers childhood education as the most important, and we advise you to use as little interference as possible to solve your own problems. If you are afraid and have no real reason, don't worry too much about the whole thing. Other theories say that a little kid can do a lot of harm if he or she is left alone with his or her fears. By reading this, the conscientious parent tries to avoid the inevitable at every common border.
But it is not even true that it is right to leave the middle of the gold, that is, leave it a little afraid, and then comfort it. In the next part, we are going to take care of the lives of young children, hoping that if the problem is approached more generally, both parents and children will benefit more.
