Principles of Good Parenting

Parenting kids the right way help them to grow into responsible and sensitive individuals. Read more about the principles of good parenting.

The principles of good parenting have never been an elaborate one. Nonetheless it is true that people never seem to have never shied away from offering a little too much of advice, on how to parent your kids well. The crux of the matter is that you are the parent and with your inherent instinct, some awareness and common sense it is not a big deal to ascertain what is good parenting all about. Becoming a parent changes the life of the couple once and for all. It is a responsibility that cannot be taken lightly even for a single moment. It is all about understanding and learning with confidence.

Parenting Principles

Here are some simple points that you can take note while you are parenting:

Be a Sane Example

This is considered to be the basic rule of parenting by many. The kid is watching you at every waking moment and like it or not, those eyes are monitoring you closely. Children grow up watching their parents. They imbibe their characteristics and draw up inferences on simple to serious matters depending on what they counter or witness their parents doing. So make sure that you are a good example before your kid. Do not engage in behaviour or actions that you would not want your kid to imbibe.

Ensure a Positive Environment

This is closely related to the earlier point, the environment that the kid grows up in and shapes his character and the manner in which he approaches the world. So make sure that it is positivity all around. Joy, peace and happiness in the environment helps the kid to express his mind and thoughts and this in turn will help you to develop a better understanding and bond.

Love but Do Not Spoil

Many parents confuse the nature of love and the how it is to be expressed. It is natural and desired that as parents you ought to love your kid. And it is also necessary that you express your love so that the kid feels cared for and secure. But in the process do not transform the emotional essence of love to a material expression of showering gifts that have the intention to please or bribe. This will not help the kid to transform into a mature human being or be sensitive towards emotions.

Keep Discipline Apart

Make the kid understand that love and affection has nothing to do with leniency in set rules and discipline ought to be maintained at all conditions. If you do not allow your kid to play or watch television late through the night, it does not mean that you love your kid any less. This is the pillar of good parenting that you learn to differentiate between what is necessary and what is to be avoided, keeping in mind the best intention of helping the kid grow into a responsible and sensitive individual.

Finally, parenting is perhaps the most researched subject after love. It is but interesting that one follows the other in whatever way you would like to interpret it. As mentioned in the earlier lines, good parenting is more about learning than about following some asserted rules. It is a human life that you have brought to shape and now you need to nurture. So tend to it as you would tend to a sapling in your garden, needless to say that the requirements vary. Deal with emotions, set discipline and help the child comprehend the world, first with your aid, and then independently.
