GOOD PARENTING TIPS (Need of the hour)

Raising kids is one of the toughest and most fulfilling jobs in the world — and the one for which you might feel the least prepared. Being a parent comes with its own share of challenges and woes.

Post pandemic, the challenges being faced due to the drastic change in the temperament of the kids is a big concern for everyone-be it the teachers or the parents. However, these tips towards positive parenting skills can be implemented to keep the household in a PRIDE-like condition. Pride stands for Praise, Reflection, Imitation, Description, and Enjoyment.

1. Boost Your Child’s Self-Esteem
Your words and actions as a parent affect the developing self-esteem of your kids more than anything else. Praising accomplishments, however small, will make them feel proud; letting kids do things independently will make them feel capable and strong.

2. Catch Kids Being Good
You may find yourself criticizing your kid far more often than complimenting. The more effective approach is to make a point of finding something to praise everyday. This will do more to encourage good behavior over the long run than repeated scoldings.

3. Set Limits and Be Consistent With Your Discipline
Discipline is necessary in every household. The kids may test the limits you establish for them, but they need those limits to grow into responsible adults. Establishing house rules helps them understand your expectations and develop self-control. Some rules might include: no TV until homework is done, and no hitting, name-calling, or hurtful teasing allowed.

4. Make Time for Your Kids
Kids who aren’t getting the attention they want from their parents often act out or misbehave because they’re sure to be noticed that way. It is a child’s fundamental need to feel loved and cared for, to receive attention from their parents, and to feel understood and heard.

5. Be a Good Role Model
One of the common mistakes parents make is telling their children what to do without modeling the same type of behavior themselves. Be sure to “walk the talk” because your little one watches everything you do carefully. Little kids are hardwired to copy other people’s actions, especially those of their parents.

6. Make Communication a Priority
You can’t expect kids to do everything simply because you, as a parent, “say so.” They want and deserve explanations as much as adults do. If we don’t take time to explain, kids will begin to wonder about our values and motives and whether they have any basis.

7. Do not forget about your own mental and physical well-being
Taking good care of yourself, both physically and mentally, can make a huge difference in how you interact with your children. Make it a priority to love yourself as well.
A positive parenting adds to a child’s creativity, self-esteem, future goals and a good sense of well-being.
