Child Rearing Practice, Parenting Style, Parental Anxiety, Models And Approaches


This present paper deals with Child Rearing Practices and Anxieties of Parents of Children with Physical Disabilities. In comparison to previous societies, modern society’s child-rearing practices are vastly different. Physically challenged children are seen as a burden by many parents in today’s culture. Disabled children are not receiving proper care. In today’s world, parents are entrusting their impaired children’s care to institutions. They don’t have the time or knowledge to care for these kinds of children. the institutions found various abilities of the disabled children and gave adequate training to improve their various skills and help them to live in society without depending on anyone. The research’s key finding is that raising awareness and providing sufficient training to parents and children prepares them to meet any challenges posed by society. They have sufficient mental bravery and are capable of overcoming any obstacles. Parents should be made aware that disabled children are not a burden. They also have certain unique abilities. The current paper aims to serve as a foundation for the development of a variety of cultural and social abilities. Overall, it aids in the motivation of both the parent and the child.
