Parents always spend a lot of time on physical conditions of their children. When their children can move and do daily things normally, parents won’t have much worry on their children. Some parents even regard good academic records as the standard to evaluate their children.

However, all those mentioned above are just parts of evaluations for children themselves. When child grow up to about sixteen years old, his mind will change. At that time, children have desire for making friends and cling with their friends always. Besides, children live in society, they won’t be separated with the reality and raised in an isolate environment, so the mental training for children from their childhood is very important. It means that parents should pay attention to children’s mental health, too.

But how is mental health defined properly?
imagesChildren should have goals for their lives and be independent and positive. Children can tell ring and wrong under the instruction of their parents, so that they can set up their own moral values and be self-disciplined.

For other people, children have particular social skills to build up good communications and have compassion and love.

When children get into troubles, they can handle with the problem as well as they can with the help of their parents. When they feel depressed, they can solve it out and get out of negative mood as soon as possible.

In fact, parents’ influence on children is very important. If parents give children proper education in their childhood, children can have a tendency to behave themselves at the young age. On the other hand, if parents also have good mental health, children can keep a good mental habit as well.

Parents with good mental health can recognize children’s mental changes and give them prompt instructions for helping out children from mental troubles. Parents will have good plans for their children. Studies, amusement and social activities can be arranged properly so that children can have balanced and full development when taking part in those activities.

In those activities, children learn their strengths and shortcomings. They can give themselves a proper position in the society. So they can find their life paths and head forward to achieve their goals. Sometimes, if children don’t give their abilities correct views, they will set up too high or too low goals which aren’t beneficial for their mental development.
