Parenting is one of the major responsibility of when you finally have children. Of course such a thing as the perfect parent doesn\’t exist. Still there is always room to improve when the parent takes the effort to get better. However, parenting is a process and there is always for improvement. You just have to be willing to improve.
To help you get started on this incredible journey, below are some parenting tips: Any child psychologist will tell you that you are a role model for your children.
Children respond better to positive examples rather than constant scolding. Reward the children for good behavior.
Make sure that you reward good behavior. Most parents punish bad behavior when they notice it. This encourages them to keep these good habits.
Set reasonable goals for the children. Parents often have high expectations that are unreasonable because they do not pay attention to their children\’s true development stages and more want to see them as specially gifted. If children are frustrated, forcing them to do or learn certain things when they are clearly struggling generally does more harm than good.
They often begin to behave badly out of frustration. Keep communication open. Make sure that the kids don\’t have to guess what it is you want from them. They want to please you and know that they\’re doing the right things, so express to them what your desires for them are. Also listen to what they say about the pressures they feel.
Set reasonable rules. Children need rules to develop well, but when rules are too strict, they become rebellious or stunted. This requires a delicate balance. Make sure they understand the purpose of the rules especially for safety. Set a few rules at a time. A child may get confused it too many rules are imposed on him or her.
When they start to feel out of control, they may begin to turn completely against authority. Keep emotions in check. Do not speak in the heat of the moment or say hurtful things even if the children say them to you. These leave scars on the children even after apologies.
