Competitive parenting all about parents, not the kids. There are many events that occurs in most of the time and a lot of real problems and issues arise and get complicated. The important thing for the parents while decided anything for their children is that when and how they move forward their children in the right direction to accomplished great things. And with the perception that the children already know the roadmap with the help of which they can achieve their goal is totally wrong. Competitive parents either from any departments like sports, academics or business always tries to push harder from the very start. According to their experiences and own distinct fashion. Without considering the fact that that what happen to their children once they feel the pressure either positive or negative. The competitive parent doesn't focus on the particular temperament whether the tasks assign to the children matches with their mindset. This led the children to the trouble and that is the very alarming situation for the parents. But it has been seen that some children are less disturb than others by such hard-pushing parents knowing that competition is their parents issue not our issue.


The competitive parents always spend a majority of time talking about their activities. They get upset when their kids don't come in 1st place and the always verbally abusive to their child when their kids don't meet their expectations. Parents with competitive approach seem very uncomfortable if their kids don’t have the social life they want for them.

Parents need to know that children differ in nature, personality and temperament. Some succeed on competition others are nervous when they are compared to others\. Parents needs treat children as an individual as they are there is no need and need to push an already competitive child to compete but it may be important and suitable to encourage a more unwilling kid who shows potential and talents to accomplishes the higher success. Parents need to remember that competition is the very tough process and whatever side you take competition is always about winning and losing. It is natural that if someone wins then is natural that more than one children loss.
