Parenting What To Do

Parenting is certainly not easy. It is hard work that many people are not prepared for requiring responsibility, commitment, and selflessness. It is probably the most important job on earth and not everyone is qualified.

Parenting involves many different features that work individually and yet also work balanced together to influence a child's personality. It is a constant process of raising someone, educating and influencing them, from birth until they reach adulthood.

There is I think no exact right way or wrong way to raise your children, but one of the most important things you can do is give your children a good example in yourself to follow.

And what about Misbehavior?

Misbehavior is one of the most important signals to you as a parent that your children feel that important needs of theirs are not being taken care of, or met. It is very easy to forget this when a parent is just focusing on correcting behavior problems throughout the day.

Try focusing on other things, such as their brilliance, changing your parenting role from warden to a coach that they respect.

Many parents seem to have two different ways of trying to control a child's misbehavior: They are completely embarrassed when misconduct happens in a public place, but when the same behavior happens at home they seem to just ignore it.

As role models we need to instill a clear set of boundaries and limits that are constant so not to have a hazy set of rules. We also are parents need to write some things down ourselves to remember so we do not forget. Often times parents fly off the handle when a child's misbehavior pushes our buttons.

Is respect really all that important?

Respect is the foundation of parenting. Those parents who early on in their child's life punish acts of disrespect are far more likely to have to deal with things, such as temper tantrums, later in time.

Children learn a lot more from you than you think. They are like tiny recorders recording things you easily forget or don't even think you have said or done. You must be on your toes at all time around your children.

As respect is the foundation of parenting, discipline is the foundation of respect.

Discipline is hard and painful, but children love and respect the parents who apply it correctly. When disciplining a child try to remember not to go overboard. At all times your child should feel respected,safe and cared about when with you.

Qualities your kids will emulate and respect are compassion, confidence, kindness, and independence to name a few. As a parent, always remember to treat your child as you would want to be treated.

Parenting is never an easy job, but you can take a different outlook and see it as an adventure and never a dull moment. You really can enjoy your children and be proud of their accomplishments.

Parenting is not just about children, it's also about parents.
