Abundant love and responsibility: The key to raise successful child Mothers have to experience the difficult time to give births; however, raising their children is much more difficultly than anything because they are holding their children’s future, destiny, and lives. Like the sculptor gives all their passion to create his statutes, they must spend all their responsibility to guide their children to succeed but with their partners—the husbands. The most important job is to love and be truly interested in the children. This not only gives them a sense of security, belonging, and support, but also soothes the difficulties of childhood. The love of a mother or father should be special in two ways: First, love should be constant and unconditional—love must always be there, even when the child is behaving terribly. Second, the parents should express and show their love openly so that the children never doubt its presence. This means that parents should hug and praise their children at every possible opportunity. Nevertheless, love has to be shown in the right place, right time, and right way when the child is in infant to adolescence. In addition, every parent has different ways to raise their children, but not all of them are successful because they do not find the correct method to treat their children in each stage during development of children. There are five stages that they have to through: Infancy, toddlerhood, preschool, school age, and adolescence. The earliest stage of growth of the children is infancy, which is important and difficult stage because the parents must spend most of time for their children. The children have their first cry in the happiness of their parents when they get out of their mothers’ body after more than nine months. The babies are like the new plant sprouting from the ground—weak, but beautiful. They have souls of angles, which are pure and bright, and all they can do are eating, sleeping, and crying because for now they do not any consciousness of the complicated world that they are going to live with. Therefore, they need the protection and care from the parents all the time, especially the mothers. The infants have very weak resistance, so they easily have high risk of illness. Therefore, the infants really need their parents looking after for their health. Beside of taking of infants’ heath, the parents should provide the plentiful love to their children even though they cannot reply back by talking at this time, but they expect and can feel it from their parents. In addition, in this stage, the parents should help the infants enhance handling and positioning because they have enormous influence the advances infants’ development. According to the article “Enhanced Handling And Positioning In Early Infancy Advances Development Throughout The First Year” by Lobo, Michele A., and James C, “ the caregiver interaction of enhanced handling and positioning have short–term and long-term effects on infants’ development including in multiple behavior: prone, head control, reaching, and sitting behaviors (short-term effects); object transfer, crawling and walking behaviors (long-term effects)”. Therefore, the parents’ involvements in the infancy stage are very important for the children to move to next stage, toddlerhood stage. When the children move from infancy into toddlerhood, the parents should start to change the way taking care for their children. In this stage, the children start to socialize, and the parents will be the sculptors to form their children’s social behavior. Actually, parents now come teachers who give nurture, and providers who sufficiently provide their guidance and affection to their children. The children begin to understand and learn thing around them. In the infancy stage, the parents do everything for their children such as feeding, sleeping, toileting, and bathing; however, in the toddlerhood stage, parents...
