Parenting is not an easy task especially for the first time parents. It is always a learning experience as with growing kids you get to know more about parenting and abilities to handle different situation. Being a parent myself I understand that there is no rule book for parenting but experience is the biggest teacher. So here are few tips and tricks to become not a perfect parent but surely a good one.
Don’t clip your child’s wings: When your child is developmentally capable of doing things then let her do the things in her own way and give a chance to find their own solutions. Always remember giving a child responsibility is good for their self-esteem .
Five them Freedom: For parents their kids never grow old but still give them freedom to make their choices and keep faith on them.
Be a Role Model: Kids learn by watching their parents so always tell the truth and teach your kids to do the same. Teach them to accept their mistakes and apologize for them. Never criticize or argue with your partner in front of them as this will harm your child’s sense of security.
Make warm memories: Memories are lifelong so make special memories by spending time with them by making few family rituals — like bedtime stories, game night, dinner time or basically activities that you can do together.
Learn to say No: Every parents wants to full-fill their kids wishes but we suggest you to learn the art of saying no for a wrong thing. Also never allow your kid to be rude or say hurtful things to you or anyone else.
Punish when required: Avoid punishing the child but do when required but don’t be too harsh while giving punishment. Also use a friendly but firm communication style when letting a your children know that they have behaved inappropriately.
