You can find tips on parenting everywhere You can read them in parenting books and also on the Internet. There are many websites in which the main content is about parenting and other relevant things about it. But always remember, not all the tips given are effective. Only a few of them are effective. Let me share with you some effective parenting tips that work.
Instill good behavior through positive reinforcement, not through punishment or bribery. Be your childs greatest encourager Always encourage them to do better. Don't pressure or intimidate them. That will not do any good for your child. So as much as possible, encourage your child for their efforts. Praising is a lot different from encouragement. Praising would be a gift or reward you can give to them for a job well done. Encouragement is given for their effort. Encouragement will give them the spirit to do better in every aspect. Always encourage them to do good things. If your child is doing something you don't like, talk to them, without screaming at them. Screaming and shouting should be eliminated. That will not help at all but will for sure worsen the situation.
As parents we all want the best for our children, whether in school, sports or any other extra-curricular activities but we have to watch how hard we push. Parents that are overly competitive can raise the bar too high for their children and end up setting them up for failure. Learn the difference between motivation and pressure, sure we all want are kids to get all A grades but if they get a B, be satisfied, don't discourage or show disapproval. Learn how to encourage them thru positive reinforcement, young children take great pleasure in pleasing their parents and would do anything to get their approval, nurture this.
When your child asks for your help, make sure you make them feel welcome. This one is important. By making them feel welcome you will always be the first person they come to, when in their time of need. They will always trust in you to have the solution that they seek.
Make them feel loved, but you donít have to buy expensive toys or other material things to make them feel that they are. Quality time is much more important and should always be a priority. If you make sure you provide them with enough quality time they will surely feel how you love them. Play with your child. Read books together, that will mean so much to them. Quality time with your child will surely lead to a good child-parent relationship.
I got one more tip for you, HUGS, yes in capital letters, itís that important. The magic of hugging, this simple act of affection will deliver major gains in your childís health, disposition and overall development. Child experts advocate hugging as an invaluable element in child development. Children that are hugged often are likely to be warm and very expressive, while the child not shown much affection grows up distancing themselves from others. So in closing, hug your child, it will make them feel loved, it will make them feel welcome and will develop a child parent bond that will last a lifetime.
So, thatís it. I hope that these few tips on parenting will help you establish a wonderful relationship with your child.
