As a parent, when your trying to bring up your children you have to make sure that you show them good values. Parents are the
first teachers that the children are know , so it’s our role to teach the values that they must know.These values can be anything
ranging from showing them how to be respectful to how to teaching them how to be disciplined.The good thing about showing
young children this is that , it will be come harder for them to actually forget these ways when they get older.
Another aspect of raising children is that you have to be able to provide them with the opportunity to learn and be educated ,
giving them this gift will enable them to develop and fit into society.Giving them a chance to reach the peak of their abilities ,
should be a goal for each and every parent to have.As a guardian all you want to do is provide the best for our children and
placing them in a better position that you had would help them a huge deal , so make sure that you do them that favour.
4.Love & Care
Showing them that you love and care for them is a must if you want to give them the best experiences when growing up, all
children need is your love and care.So doing the little things like asking them how their day went or talking about their interests
would go along way, so just try to be a more active parent in their lives.

Creating a safe space for the children to leave in and grow up is a thing that is ultimately left upto you to provide, showing them
that you provide them the things that they need will help you create a friendly environment.Showing them that you love them is
just a start in making them feel safe and give them the opportunity to express themselves, creating a good environment is good
for their growth as well as their development.
6.Leading By Example

what adults like to do and this can be used to your advantage,like for instance you can take advantage of this when teaching
them how to be respectful and kind you might want to lead by example.Actions do speak louder than words after all.
7.Its Okay to make mistakes
Most of the time we as people always want to be perfect at the things that we do, but we must remember that’s its okay to make
mistakes even when it comes to parenting. So don’t try to be a perfectionist, parenting has to be a fun and exciting time to
8.Don’t Be Too Controlling
We only want the very best for our children right ? , but sometimes this often leads us into making decisions that they might not

children aren’t that creative , maybe its because their glued to electronics all the time and it makes me wonder if they could even
leave without these things. Please urge them to have some fun in the sun and get in touch with nature.
Teaching children how to be devoted to the word of God is very essential for their spiritual growth, as parents its really important
for us to share the scriptures with them at least every week.Doing this will definitely make a huge different in their lives.

Health is one of those things that you can’t ignore as a parent, so making sure that your young ones stay health is of extreme

will help you strengthen the bong you had with them. Being involved in the lives of your children will allow them to become more
