Parenting Advice

>> Aug 2, 2010

Parents, perhaps you’ve already read lots of parenting advices before; but why don’t you check these advice also?

To raise a child to be a well rounded child; you should teach values of independence and self-sufficiency in your child at a young age. Balance the parental input so that you are giving all your child’s needs emotionally and physically, while at the same time showing your child that he or she can do a lot of things independently.

Start teaching your child a "can do" attitude :

Give Your Child Responsibility
It is never too early to teach your child responsibility. Whether it be the job of picking up his or her own toys, helping with dishes, or helping take care of the family pet. Too many parents do everything for their children, thus instilling the idea at a early age that if they don’t do it, someone else will.

Do Not Do What They Can Do
If your four year old says, "Mommy, go get my juice, it’s on the table" should you? No! Unless a child is ill and really is feeling so poorly that they should be made to rest as much as possible, this is a situation where you as a parent should say, "If you want your juice, it’s right over there".

Teach Your Children about Consequences
If you threaten and once a few tears are shed, then you give in, you are teaching your child that there are no consequences for their actions. Stick to your guns, they will be better off in the long run. If they repeatedly do something they know is wrong and you threaten no cartoons after dinner, then make it no cartoons after dinner. Empty threats do nothing for the parent or the child.

Set an Example
You are the best teacher to your child. This means that if you say you are going to do something you should try as hard as possible to live up to what you say. This sometimes means playing matchbox cars when you are tired, making a cake when you don’t feel like it, playing outside with your kids when you’d rather be reading the latest John Grisham novel. If you show your children that people should live up to their promises, they will keep that lesson for life.

very nice post! i like the last advice the most.'set an example' because no matter what we say to our children, if we do not practice what we preach, there is no conviction in what we say...
