Top 10 Traits of a Good Parent

Analyze your parenting skills. Read on and find out if you have all of the must-have parenting qualities.

Successful parents are the ones who consider in teaching life lessons for the overall success of their children. Parenting is a great responsibility that calls for commitment and decisiveness for both the physical and emotional needs of a child. We should remember always, that children are good imitators and they learn much by imitating their elders and their surroundings. Therefore, it is a moral responsibility of every parent to be answerable about his or her deeds, good or bad.

Have a quick look at the top 10 qualities which a good parent must have.

1.  Trustworthiness

Parents should seek to build the trust factor in their children. This can be possible by developing a concern and response to the needs and inquisitiveness of a child. When confronted by any untoward situation, children will not hesitate to seek parents help and guidance.

2. A Good Listener

Patience is an aspect of being a good listener. Parents should not jump into conclusions just because of their experience about life. Children should not be denied their say. Parents ought to give an equal opportunity of hearing their children’s anxiety, query or worry, in the same way as they want their children to hear them.

3. Reserves Time for Children

Today’s fast life has brought in a mechanical lifestyle, wherein parents are busy earning their livelihood. Did you ever give a serious thought about the number of hours that you spend with your child? Surely, you will be pricked with a sense of guilt in your inability to share moments of joys and sorrows with your child. Be it indoors or outings children always love to have fun with their parents and other family members. Children who lack the physical presence and emotional support of their parents are bound to be covered in their lonesomeness.

4.  Involves Children in Household Chores

This is one of the best ways in giving a realization of self-importance to a child. Parents should encourage children to participate in the various household activities. This helps the child to understand the basic lifestyle and endure good learning throughout his or her life.

5.  Always Speaks Positive

Words of encouragement, motivation, love and support route a positive mental development in the child.  By constant criticism, blame and discouragement will end your child being introvert and lack confidence in social life.

6. A Good Role Model

Care should be taken so as to avoid conflicts between spouses, in front of children.  This sets in a bad example about married life and family life in the minds of a child.  Parents should display warmth in their relationship as children will learn to value the bond between a husband and wife.

7. Rewards with Appreciation

It is always good to appreciate children for their good deeds and thoughts. Appreciation should be treated as a productive reward that encourages the child to continue the good acts in life.

8.  Loving and Kind

Love is the driving force in directing your child for a good life ahead. Express your love for your children and give them a feeling of importance that they hold in your lives.

9.  Teaches Good Values

Good values are a treasure to own throughout one’s life. Teach your children good values about life and they will make their own life on sound foundation.

10.  Pampers for the Right Reason

 Children should be pampered for the right reasons only. Discipline should make them and not break them. Love your children unconditionally and they will be your stronghold in old age.

Successful parents undergo self-analysis and reflect on the outcomes of their decisions, thoughts and deeds. They are committed to their responsibility of parenting.
