Parenting of course is a developing experience that grows as the child grows. So, it is important for all the parents to understand their children and regard them as an individual. A little amount of patience, compromise and understanding can bring the best parent out of you.
Be patient. Listen to your child. Do not lose your calm at the drop of a hat. Once you start practicing being patient, you can make it a habit with time. And it also teaches your child to handle things patiently.
Do not get aggressive. Be firm with what you decide. Narrate it to your child. Make your point clear to him. Set some standard rules and explain your child about them. You got to be honest to your kids if you want them to be honest to you. Do not forget your promises made to your little ones. Value your commitments.
Spend time with your kids. Enjoy each moment of your parenthood. Involve yourself in your child’s activities. Make time for his school functions, sports, weekend outings etc. Your kids will love to have youthful parents. Take care of yourself and groom yourself well. Stay young at mind. Feel young. This will surely be appreciated by your little kids.
Share things with your child and inspire him to do the same. Let him take part in small household activities. It will help him to feel important and responsible. He will love you for this. Teach them the value of money and opportunity. Do not be extravagant in front of your children. They will pick it up very easily. Easy money can make them succumb to vanity. Explain them, why you are giving away an expensive toy and buying a less expensive similar toy for him.
Talk it out. Try to express. If you are a mother or a father of a teenager, sit and talk. Do not keep things inside you which can only cause misunderstandings. Be practical and avoid nagging about daily chores. Do not discuss the unrealistic things in front of your children. It will only make them mad and irritated. Finally, do tell your children, how important they are for you and how much you love them.
