Proper nurturing is synonymous to diplomacyLet's consider the stage of childhood. One and all face diplomacy during childhood. It's the parents and other senior members who diplomatically behave while nurturing their child. The uniqueness of such diplomacy is its most selfless intention. It's next to impossible to raise a child without being a little diplomatic. All the little ones make a fuss while sleeping, eating, playing, waking up, during bath and dressing up or even going to school, but the parents and the guardians manage the tantrums very tactfully. Even teens are moody which have to be taken care of very tactfully or else it would hamper the boy/girl either emotionally, intellectually or both.
Just imagine if our parents and other elders at home were not able to control their anger and desire, then they couldn't have nurtured us appropriately. It's necessary to be composed while parenting children. For an example: it's a common practice to tell the infants some stories or singing a lullaby and mildly caressing his/her eyes and cheeks will gradually make a child fall asleep even if he/she doesn't want to sleep. Diplomacy is an art in which every parent becomes an expert while rearing a child. Without such diplomacy, the parents would fail miserably. It will create an emotional gap between a kid and parents or with any other elderly members from childhood itself. Successful parenting is a reward of selfless diplomacy. Thus, such harmless diplomatic skill must be applied as and when required in upbringing a child.
Henry A. Kissinger, a U.S. politician and diplomat, has rightly said: "Diplomacy: the art of restraining power." It is such a thought-provoking quotation. It's right for parents that if they do not reasonably use their strength and power, then they would never succeed in nurturing the generation next.
