postheadericon Becoming a Good Parent

Many of us want to become good parents to our children. We want our children to be raised excellently – with proper breeding, good attitude and intelligent too. Well, all of this can be done through proper raising your children. And this starts first with becoming good parents to your children. A family is where the child learns how to act and learn his very first lesson. Your child will grow up to be a good person if you do your task well in raising your child. There are plenty of things that you need to do in order to insure your children to grow up as responsible and matured individuals.
Many say that as parents, you will exert more than effort to make your children feel loved. At the same time, being a parent is also considered to be the most satisfying task. Imagine the feeling of being able to raise good children and knowing that you raised them all by yourself – of course, through the help too of your beloved partner in life. There are many things a parent should teach his child. A parent’s teaching and guide can drastically change everything. Did you ever wonder why there is some child who grew up to be a bad person? It’s not because they are a bad person in nature but because they lack proper guidance from their parents. So, how can you ensure that your child will feel loved and security?
Here are the following tips:
•    Let them feel that they are loved and treasured. You can give your child kisses and hugs every day. You can encourage them with their passion too instead of discouraging them. For example, if they get an award from school, show them how proud you are and tell them you love them the most.
•    Do not criticize your child. It is given that some children have bad attitude but that doesn’t mean they are bad children. You can also tell them to change their attitude because it is not good and that you would be happy if they do. Do not use the term “you are bad” or “go away”. That will somehow lift their spirits.
•    Talk to them. Many parents have the misinterpretation that they should always do the talking and their children should always listen to them. This should not always be the way. Talk to your children and listen to them sometimes. You will then get an idea on how to address your child’s attitude because you know what he/she thinks.
