“All that I am, or can be, I owe it to my angel mother.”
Knowing how to discipline and teach your child the good and proper way is the key to make them responsible, independent, loving and obedient. Learn these best parenting tips to help you establish a healthy parent-child relationship.
Be consistent with discipline, routine, or dinnertime together.
When you try to discipline your kids the easy way that they will obey you, be consistent. This consistency is a serious responsibility for you. When it’s the rule, stick to it. If you want to establish an authority with them then you should always mark your words and parenting rules.
Be patient with your children.
Being a mom is not a piece of cake. However, you should not show your kids how hard it was. When you’re annoyed with their behavior and you want to scold them right away, get hold of yourself. Patience is always a good disciplinary measure. Acting and rushing your emotions towards your kids as they did wrong will only stress you out. Make it simple and keep calm. Everything is going to be fine.
Have a sense of humor.
Well, you should not always have to be authoritarian. Doing much would also cause unpleasant psychological misbehavior in your child. Learn how to smile, laugh and throw jokes with your kids. This way, they will feel that you also understand them and want to play with them. It will ease the tension and pressure that they feel towards you. It’s unhealthy to always be serious. Make your kids laugh and enjoy your company.
Be sweet andaccept their kisses and hugs from your children.
Kissing and hugging your kids will give them the feeling of being loved, attended and cared. This will reduce the tendency of making them rebellious and moody. As a mom, they always want your approval and your attention. It’s not so hard to give. So, it’s better if you always make them feel loved and important.
Talk to your children a lot. Listen to them and make them feel important.
Miscommunication is often the major problem inside a family. Failing to talk to your children about their day, their school, their hobbies, interests and desires will most likely form into misunderstanding. Good parenting always requires communication so if possible make time and have a little chat with your kids especially the teens where their world is most likely easy to be influence by the surroundings. A good parent should always know what’s happening about her child.
Enjoy and make fun with your children while they are young. Give your attention to them equally.
You should never take a day for granted, because if you do not make time for your kids, they will grow up before you know it. Creating momentum memories with your kids is a thing you can’t buy even when you’re rich. Time flies fast, that’s why cherish all the moments.
When you want your children to listen, whisper.
Another trick to let your kids listen to you is to whisper. When you want to tell something and you just whisper it, your kids will surely be curious about what you’re saying so they will most likely go near to you and listen to what you says.
Give children the opportunity to be independent as early as possible.
Coach your children to help themselves, so you can use their time to rest or do what needs getting done. It’s better if you let them discover things. Whether it is household chores to putting their toys back in place, you’re teaching them how to become responsible. They will definitely learn how to think, understand and stand in their own feet.
Give your children space to fall and to fail.
When parents prevents and stops mishaps or challenges—the valuable skills to problem-solve during adversity might not develop. Your child will learn what his legs can do, what happens if he goes too fast, or reaches too high. Let your children learn how to get back up again.
Give children space to try and manage their emotions to help them grow with sense of capability.
If you run in to save the day, you can unintentionally take away the natural ability of your child to sooth themselves and problem solve. If your child does come wailing up the stairs over to you, meet him with a hug, but don’t race to help until he’s had time to help himself first.
The fate of your child depends on you.
