  • With 25 million babies born each year (compared to 4 million annually in the US), it's easy

  • to see that India knows a thing or two about parenting.

  • So, how do they raise all those kids?

  • Well, first off, there's….

  • The Virtue of Kindness and Patience One of the biggest things Indian parents try

  • to teach their kids is kindness.

  • Little boys and girls are encouraged to be modest and nice to everything around them,

  • from strangers on the street to the smallest bugs they find in the yard.

  • Indians believe that every living thing on Earth deserves the same amount of respect.

  • And don't forget about patience!

  • Showing your negative emotions and irritability is considered a big vice here.

  • The patient man will rule the worldis the motto Indian parents teach their kids

  • to live by!

  • Controlled Information What do you remember watching on TV when you

  • were young – a cat and mouse trying to outsmart each other?

  • Well, Indian parents wouldn't be too happy about that.

  • These sorts of borderline violent or silly cartoons aren't that big hereinstead,

  • Indian children usually watch programs about art and education.

  • You won't see little kids glued to tablets eitherpeople in India firmly believe

  • that the Internet can be dangerous for children and even harm their personality!

  • Manners First Indian parents won't tolerate irresponsible

  • and rude behavior.

  • Kids can't just throw a major tantrum and slam the door like a boss, unless they wanna

  • be grounded for months on end!

  • Family fights won't fly eitherevery child is taught to be respectful to their

  • family members, and parents try to do everything they can to make the bond between siblings

  • unbreakable.

  • They're also very particular about table etiquettemaybe toddlers can play with their food,

  • but at 10, you'll definitely get in trouble for it.

  • After all, manners maketh man, right?

  • Setting a Good Example How can a child be kind, respectful, and independent

  • if their parents are rude and irresponsible?

  • Indian parents are sure that their habits today are their children's future traits.

  • That's why they don't lecture their little ones but try to show them how everything's

  • done by their own example.

  • Plus, in India, several families often live under one roof, so older generations never

  • hesitate to show their grandchildren the ropes.

  • Strong Child-Parent Bond Space is a privilege in India, so not that

  • many children get their own room to themselves.

  • Indian moms also believe in Attachment Parenting, so they try to spend every single minute that

  • they can with their newborns.

  • Indian doctors even recommend new moms sleep with their babies.

  • Of course, it's pretty convenientif your baby is anxious, wants to eat, or needs a

  • diaper change, you can just handle the problem right then and there.

  • This kind of co-sleeping usually ends when a kid turns 6 or 7 years old.

  • And this time together is believed to strengthen the bond between parents and their children.

  • Dose of Independence Indian children usually start to work from

  • a young age.

  • Boys tend to work in the fields and help with the animals, while girls do chores and take

  • care of their younger siblings.

  • Indian parents want their kids to become independent and responsible as soon as possible, so no

  • one is allowed to lie on the couch with a bag of chips and watch cartoons all day long.

  • Of course, parents don't just leave their children to deal with a challenge all by themselves

  • they're always there in case their little one needs help!

  • The Importance of Education Every parent wants their child to be the best,

  • and Indian moms and dads are no different.

  • They pay close attention to their kids' academic achievements and try to help them

  • as much as they can along the way.

  • Indian parents want their children to be successful more than anything, and what can open more

  • doors for you than a good education, right?

  • So strict play-time and study-time rules are no surprise in an Indian household.

  • And believe it or not, children often thank their parents later for teaching them the

  • value of self-discipline!

  • Spirituality Lessons For many Indian people, spirituality is a

  • huge part of life.

  • It's what their parents taught them, what their school encouraged, and the essence of

  • who they are.

  • From a very young age, kids know their family rituals and take part in them, slowly exploring

  • this side of life.

  • Indian parents believe that introducing their kids to spirituality right away helps them

  • discover themselves and figure out the world around them.

  • Well, that's one way to do it!

  • Financial Control When it comes to money, Indian parents are

  • anything but laid-back.

  • No, you don't need this.

  • And nope, you don't need that either.”

  • The logic behind this rule is very simple: Indian parents want their children to know

  • the value of money from a very early age.

  • So even if a kid gets some pocket money, it's strictly controlled and they know they can't

  • just splurge on that cool Pokémon T-shirt.

  • It's a pretty tough tactic, but it seems to be working alright!

  • Indian children grow up understanding that they have to work hard to achieve financial

  • stability.

  • However, Indian parents also tend to pick their kid's career path before they even

  • start talking!

  • Of course, as you can imagine, this can cause some tension, especially if the child wants

  • to do something else.

  • But in India, family is everything, so parents and kids find a common ground one way or another.

  • The Influence of School When a kid goes to school for the first time,

  • it's a big day for the whole family.

  • And Indian schools do a great job at picking all the things that parents have taught their

  • children and taking them to the next level.

  • They encourage tolerance and push kids to uncover their true potential.

  • There's no concept of a “favorite studenthereevery child receives tremendous support

  • and approval.

  • The main task the school has for you is to better yourself every single day.

  • Teachers show kids that their main competition is themselves, not somebody else.

  • And your parents are always there to catch you if you fall!

  • Hmm, schools teaching valuable life lessonsthat's pretty awesome indeed!
