Parents must be patient in process of developing new skills in students.
Every parent, regardless of ethnicity, income, education, or geographic location, watches eagerly the child's acquisition of each new skill.
It is usual often tempting to hurry the child beyond his natural learning rate, which can set up dangerous feelings of failure and states of worry in the child. This might happen at any stage. A baby might be forced to use a toilet too early, a young child might be encouraged to learn to read before he knows the meaning of the words he reads.
On the other hand, though, if a child is left alone too much, or without any learning opportunities, he loses his natural enthusiasm for life and his desire to find out new things for himself. Parents vary greatly in their degree of strictness towards their children.
Some may be especially strict in money matters. Others are severed over times of coming home at night or punctuality for meals.
In general, the controls imposed represent the needs of the parents and the values of the community as much as the child's own benefit.
