Best Parenting Tips Ever
Being a parent is tough! And demanding! There are just a few things I have learned as a parent.
Parenting is such a small word for the amount of work every parent puts in to raising their child. I never understood the parenting efforts and devotion any parents put in till I became one. Now that I have a four-year old running around, I understand my mom's word when she said "Just wait till you become a mom."
Here are what I think are few good tips for parenting. I know this is far from a complete list and will wait for you all to share your ideas, tips and tricks with me.
This is one of most important virtues which every parent must have. With kids growing up we think it will easy but it becomes challenging in different ways and patience is checked at every step of the life. Shouting at them and hitting them won't help anything. Try to be patient and lower your own voice and make them understand when they do something wrong or make mistake. Always keep patience. Yeah, I know this is easier said than done but a moment of holding back will save hours of tantrums.
2. Show Love
We all love it when someone expresses their love with words and actions. This is necessary for all of us but is most necessary for young kids that need all the love from us. With life getting busier and busier we do not get enough time to let them know they are loved. Letting them know in their young age that they are loved will help them trust you and have a lovely life.
3. Spend time with them
Always spend at least one hour with your child and talk about your day with them. Ask them about their day too. If we try to keep the routine they will always share with you and know that it is okay to share and will not hide anything from you. As it is said, if small sapling is taken care of nicely, the tree will definitely turn out great. By spending time with them, they will know that you are always there for them. No money, no gift can make up for the time you could spend with them. So please do not compromise your time with gifts.
4. Read, let read
Always spend some time with your child reading books with them. Even if they are too young to read, they will love hearing you read. All the years of reading to them will be helpful in developing their love for the books and soon they will be reading. While they have their nose in a book, you are free to do your thing! And all the learning that they will get is a great bonus too.
5. Be a role model
Small kids are like sponges. They are always learning, even when you think they are not. They will pick up your words and actions - the good, the bad and definitely the ugly. Make a conscious effort to act like the way you want them to act with you. You need to show love and respect around them and they will pick that right up and treat you the same way.
6. Never pressurize on performance
The world is getting very competitive and it is only going to get tougher. We all want our kids to do great but we will need to be careful not to pressurize them, be it at school or in other activities. Of course, we need to encourage them to do their best and teach them to stick with a task but being pushy and overbearing will probably backfire.
7. Set boundaries
Kids need to know the difference between right and wrong. If they mess up, they need to be told what the right behaviour is.
8. Listen to your parents
You may not agree with everything your parents do and say but let's face it, they did raise us. And we turned out great, right? So let's at least listen to them and see how they can help us.
I am learning new things about being a parent every single day. What I have learned so far is that we need to use our intuition and do the best that we can.
