Top 10 Best Parenting Tips

Let us have a quick look at top 10 simple yet effective parenting tips which can certainly help you to find out how to be the best parent and parent your child the right way.


1. Give Unconditional Love

Give Unconditional Love to child

Firstly you must remember that your children are not going to remain young always. Your child would not remain a baby or a pre-schooler forever. Time flies so fast, that they will grow up soon. Hence, you should make the most of your child’s growing years.

The childhood of your child is the time when you can spend maximum amount of time with your child and grow close to her. Once, they grow into teenagers and adults, they get so busy with their own lives. You should try to have as many as happy memories as possible of each age of your child from toddler to teenager. Let them know how much you love and that you will always love them.


2. Put Yourself in Their Shoes

Put Yourself in Their Shoes

If any time, you feel irritated by your child’s demands or feel that your child is being difficult, put yourself in their shoes for a moment. Try to think about the time when you were a child and felt the same way. If your child wants to stay in her friend’s house and you do not want to allow her, think about it from your child’s point of view. Remember the time when you were also ten years old like her and you and your entire gang had planned to stay together in someone’s house.

Remember how you had plans to play games with each other and have a lot of fun. How excited you had felt about the whole idea and how bad you would have felt if you had missed it! Those times with friends will not come back and you as a parent today will cherish those childhood memories forever. In the same way, see the situation from your ten year old’s perspective.


3. Develop Healthy Eating Habits from a Young Age

Develop Healthy Eating Habits from a Young Age

Make it a point to feed your child healthy food right from a young age. Give them fruits instead of chips and pizza. If your children eat healthy foods right from a young age, then it is likely that the habit will continue till adulthood. Food habits developed at a young age often stay on till later in life. If children get used to eating nutritious and healthy food right from a young age, they are more likely to eat well as adults too.


4. Have Family-Time!

Have Family-Time!

Many fathers come home late at night, by which time their children are already in bed. Make it a point to have at least one meal together as a family. Basically, you should try and make it a point to do something together as a family. Set aside fifteen minutes every evening, when the entire family will together clean the house! Or, you can also play some board games five days a week together like ‘Monopoly’. This will help all of you to bond together as a family and will also help siblings become closer.


5. Laugh with Them

Laugh with Them

Tell your children silly jokes and make them laugh. Laughter is the best solution for all problems. It can make your children’s life beautiful and happier. It can bring about positivity in the house and make the family bonding even stronger.


6. Get Involved in Their Studies

Get Involved in Their Studies

Parental involvement is very important for helping children excel in academics. Everyday make sure that your children completed their homework. If your childrenare facing any problem help them. Make sure that they are prepared well for their exams and tests.

Also, avoid doing your child’s homework. Some parents do their child’s homework which is not right. You can guide your children and help them when they are doing homework, but do not do it for them.


7. Praise Them

Praise Them

It is necessary to praise children genuinely to boost their self-esteem and confidence. Appreciate them for all the good things that they do. Reward them if they have achieved something. Celebrate their little achievements. Boosted self-esteem and confidence is very important for helping children live a happier and a successful life.


8. Do Not Yell or Shout at Them

Do Not Yell or Shout at Them

Try your best and avoid shouting or yelling at your children at all costs. Yelling and screaming can only do harm to your children. It can hurt your children’s self-esteem and confidence.


9. Inculcate Morals and Values in Them

Inculcate Morals and Values in Them

Inculcate right values in your children so that they develop positive thoughts. Values like kindness, truthfulness, honesty, love, helpfulness etc. are very necessary for building their character. Be a role model for them.


10. Try to Make Your Children Self-Reliant

Try to Make Your Children Self-Reliant

Try to make your child independent and self-reliant. Do not do everything for your child as this will make them more and more dependent on you. Children should be given an opportunity to do simple tasks which can be done by them, without the parent doing it for them. Some parents do everything for their children which can cause problems later on in life. When children do things by themselves, they become self-reliant which in turn increases self-esteem.

Making your child do a little cleaning of the house, folding of clothes, and washing dishes, etc. will help them to learn basic life skills which everybody needs to know.

These are some important parenting tips which can help parents during the journey of parenthood to boost their positive parenting skills. At the end of the day, remember to be good role models for your child as good parents are the biggest role models for children. Memories of parent-child relationship are special to every parent and child and these hold a special place in every parent and child’s heart!

Spending time with kids is much appreciated by kids and helps making the bond stronger between parents and children. Make sure that we in the process of of giving then an unconditional love, we are not spoiling them by providing the things they want or demand. So we need some guidance or mentors on positive parenting that helps in bringing out the best out of children.

It is very important to keep simple things in mind for being a better parent. Some times we forget these small things which can create a hug gap between parents and a child. This article is good for reminding parents about the basic hygiene of parenting.

parenting tips are equally important but I personally feel that a child's initial years are those years in which parents can give maximum time n can express maximum love to their child and can even keep those memories forever to cherish.Along with this both the parents should play equal roles in the upbringing n development of their child.A child is the equal responsibilty of Mother as well as Father.

Initial years(1-5)of a child are very important to make a good parent-child relation. A time when both want to know each-other well.
