Parenthood is not an easy process so a lot of people tend to make mistakes that push their children away. Such children end up keeping vital information from their parents and that is what this article seeks to prevent.

Most times, parents begin to notice that their children no longer confide in them and it can be disconcerting. This article will provide a few reasons as to why children draw away from their parents.

1 Sometimes, instead of talking calmly to a child when he or she does something wrong, parents tend to yell at them instead. This makes the child reluctant to confide in their parents in order to avoid a scolding in case they say or do something wrong. It'll be best for parents to be patient with their kids in order not to push them away.

2 In Africa, flogging children is quite common and a lot of people have endorsed this method of training. However, this act breeds fear into the hearts of children and it creates an emotional barrier between such kids and their parents. There are alternative methods of punishment which parents should use in order to train their kids instead of flogging them.
