1. HEALTHY DIET
A parent should be very cautious about the nutrition for the kid since beginning only. Though the kid develops a preference of taste further, however, parent duty should be to orient their kid towards healthy food by serving homemade healthy food in appealing and tempting manner so that they themselves avoid junk foods
2. QUALITY TIME
A quality time with family is more valuable than any money. Spending time with family creates a strong bond. A parent should take out time from their everyday busy life for their kids so that he/she should not feel isolated. Few things that a parent can do to have quality time are mentioned below
- Healthy chit-chat, Joking
- Play indoor games
- Daily story reading
- Physical activities together
3. AVOID COMPARISON
Parents usually although compare their kids to drive the other towards goal but mostly it ends by creating a label for one or the other, which disturbs the bond development among siblings. Always remember, every kid is unique in its own way.
4. LET THEM LEARN
Mistakes are to learn. Rather serving kids with the solution to their problem let them gain the experience. A parent can judge kids’ mental behavior by walking away or doing nothing for some moments. The importance of self-care should not be underestimated. However, it is not advisable to touch the pot always for checking its hotness. A parent should identify when to let kids learn by mistake and when to teach them so that major accidents can be avoided.
5. MAKE THEM FOLLOW RATHER THAN TEACHING
Instead of teaching kids by words, let them learn through your actions. Be the role model for the behavior which you want to impart to your kids. What are the things that you do is very important for your kids? Therefore, for example instead teaching them on love and affection, nurture your marriage.
6. GET INVOLVED BUT DO NOT INTERFERE
Develop a friendly relationship with your kids, so that you are the first person to contact in case if he/she finds to share anything. Involve them in simple decision making and take their opinion into consideration. Involvement intention should be to understand the kid in a better manner rather than to turn them into what you want to be. Involvement should be to a level as too much involvement can be considered as interference or also there is a chance of losing the dignity. So, live their dreams, instead of persuading them to live your set dreams to avoid imparting rebellious behavior.
7. ACCEPT INSTEAD EXCEPT MUCH
A kid goes with many transformations. Being a parent, one should be ready to embrace the change. Behavior, likings, and other such characteristics are expected to change at various stages of life. Moreover, provide freedom to kids to grow in their way, rather than customizing their behavior. Also one should aim for “good enough” or “satisfactory” instead of “perfect”
8. POLITE DISCIPLINE
A polite behavior is everywhere welcomed. So, a polite discipline would be more welcomed than the strict behavior. Strictness has heavy weighty consequences. Moreover, polite discipline reduces the probability of adding disobedient behavior to the kid. A parent should look behind “Bad” behavior and uproot the cause only. However, a kid should be kept under watch in order to limit distractions for them. Teach the kids but avoid preaching them by over explaining.
