Being a parent is considered as one of the most rewarding experience. No matter you have a girl or a boy, a teenager or adult you are always supposed to be in touch with them. Of course at your older age your child will take care of you but being a nice parent gives you a responsibility of teaching nurturing and loving them since their birth. Apart from their effort for being a responsible adult in the society it needs your cooperation as well. A parent teaches the difference between right and wrong, make the child feel valued and loved, and give supports when they are striving to fulfill their dream. For a new parent, here are few suggestions. Go through them and try to bring these in your daily life:
Give them hug and kisses, celebrate their achievement, spend joyful time with them, laugh with them, play with them, clean them and make them look cute and beautiful.If they are adults then make them realize that you love them unconditionally, if they are very successful in their life you love them and if they are unsuccessful you still love them. Love is a thing which binds a tight bond between parents and children and ultimately make them stronger.
Be a role model
Your mother is the first teacher of your life. As you grow you learn the basics of life from your parent. Being a role model is the best way to mould a child’s character. If you are an uneducated businessmen you cannot be Einstein and teach how to be an intelligent fellow in your class. But you can follow Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela etc. to impart values like honesty, hard work, truthfulness to your child.
If your child comes second in class then make them compete with the first, because It makes sense, but if you compare your child with your sibling or your neighbor’s child it doesn’t makes sense. Your child may not be mature enough to know the reason why he is not like his neighbor’s child. Also offensive statements like ‘ why are you not like John’ can put him or her into depression.
Do not be an over strict parent
Being an over strict parent can also cause depression. Everybody needs love and for a child home is a place where he or she get love. If you are over strict then obviously you will reduce the love portion which is not healthy.
Do not sink them in love
Why is scolding and sometimes being rude necessary? If you never scold your child then he will never realize the importance and meaning of many things. Sometimes it is a must to scold or to give punishment as such things remains in their mind for a longer time.
Listen to your kids
Listening to your kids make them feel more valuable and it also removes any complex thoughts and misunderstanding between you and him.
Spend time with them
Spend time with your kids, love them, play with them, discuss your daily life with them and also teach them the ups and down of life. There is no substitute for this. If you never spend time with your kid then one day he or she will become distant. At those times you cannot revisit the past and change the things you did, you will only regret everything.
Improve the social skill
There are certain aspects of life which take a long time to understand especially if you are learning them on your own. So share your wisdom, knowledge and experiences with your kid. Make him or her understand things about tolerance, patience, wisdom and their importance. Explain to them about the human thoughts, hidden tricks and tactics which they will use.
