THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF A PARENT
Before Knowing the roles that will help you be more effective as a parent, it’s just as essential to remember that how you might
take care of your children might be different from the next individual. That being said don’t feel wrong if you’re being look at by
others differently, as long as what you’re Doing is right and beneficial for your children in the long run.
Another thing that you might want to take not of is that you shouldn’t be to controlling, because if you are imposing these things
with so much force it might only make the bond between you and your weaker. Which is something that you am sure you don’t
want, not everyone gets to be a parent so embrace every minute of it because you only get better at it.
1.Building A Strong Relationship
The main thing you might want to do when you have a family is to ensuring that you create a strong family bond, this is one of
the many things that you’re responsible as a parent. Creating this connection between you and your children will make it easier
for you to relate too them, having this relationship also makes it better for your loved ones to open up to you and also builds
trust as well as accountability.
When children have the a safe space to open up to you and tell you anything, it allows you to know how they’re feeling about
certain things which could lead to a better living environment for the both of you.Therefore as parents it’s very essential that you
spend enough time with them to allow you to cultivate this unique connection that may have been lacking, if you feel like this has
been missing from your household you shouldn’t be discouraged.
The good thing is that there is always a time to change and better your family, all you need is the right information to get you in a
better position of improving this relationship.
2.Parents Are Responsible for childrens Well-being
Taking good care of your children is one of your primary jobs as a parent, ensuring that you keep their health in check is very
essential as it will enable them to grow up health and strong.So making sure that you give them a diet that is filled with the right
nutrients is a priority, as this prevents them from lacking in nutritional valve which can lead to stunted growth.
Teaching them good health practices is also just as important when it comes to taking care of their well-being, these are things
such as washing their hands after using the restroom or always making sure they brush their teeth.Its very small things like this
that can will have a big role on how they’ll act as they grow.
However we shouldn’t neglect the other aspects of their well-being which are the emotional and mental aspects, As these are also
just as important part of their development too. So providing them the right kind of support in those areas is also your job as a
3. Teaching Children About Faith (Religion)
If you want to make sure that your children grow into the belief that you follow, you have to take up the authority and lead them
into following it. The best way and only way to ensure that the grow up in a spiritual manner is by making sure you spend the
time to talk about the word of God with them, this will allow you to explain it everything about God and his love for us.If you think
of it from a young ones perspective, it will make the more likely to stay and maintain a spiritual lifestyle due to the fact that the
people that they look upto are also showing how much they are dedicated.
So spending enough time to share the word which can be done at least once a week, will help your entire family to grow
spiritually.Therefore try as much as possible to have time within the week to do this as it will improve the lifestyle of your home.
4.Responsible For Giving Them Good Opportunities
One of the things that you tend to appreciate when you get older, is how much our parents sacrificed for us. So its time for you to
do the same for your children as well, by making sure you give them the best opportunities that you possible can give
them.Giving them a chance to receive a good education will enable them to become successful in the future, ensuring that the
get a ticket to success is an essential part as a guardian.Providing them with all the right tools they need when growing up is a key
part to their development, however we shouldn’t look at these opportunities only in terms of schooling as there are many other
things that you can do.
Like for instance, you must give them the best health care that you can as this will enable them to develop correctly.So trying by
all means to give your children great opportunities will allow them to be in a much better position where they can achieve more
than what you would, which is the what we would all want.
An Important thing to remember is that giving them the best opportunities doesn’t equal forcing them into doing something that
you want them to do.The path they choose is their decision, so as a guardian let them be who they want to be and give them the
best effort in succeeding.
5.Providing A Good Environment
Another Job that you need to take care of , is providing them with a good environment for them to grow up in.A good
environment is one in which that will be able to support your childs emotional and mental development, having a good space for
them to grow up in is very essential.Children that grow up in homes that are abusive maybe negatively affected by them and this
can have a huge impact on their personality in general, most of them that are brought up in this kind of setup are usually distant
from their family members.
Therefore making it a priority for your young ones to grow up in a loving home that will make them feel more comfortable and
give them the chance to express themselves freely, however its also important to regulate the kind of content that they’re
viewing.Making them watch shows that have the appropriate language is a great start , as this will enable them to learn how to
speak if they’re little which is another positive.
6.Responsible For Showing Love , Care & Support
This is yet another job that you’re responsible for if you want to become a good parent, this is showing the young ones that you
love and care for them. Being involved with your children’s activities is a very essential thing that you have to remember , if you
aren’t involved in their life it does have some negative impact on their well-being which had been mentioned above.Showing
them that you support them will give them a very huge boost in confidence, which will make them more likely to succeed in
whatever they’ll be doing.So turning up for their soccer games or attending their concerts will give make them feel the love and
care that you provide, so try by all means to make sure you try to attend their activities.
When it comes to showing them that you love them , you have to display it regularly. There is often a big confusion that
surrounds this particular point , most parents think that buying nice and expensive things will show them that you love them
which is not true. Of course getting nice things is great but whats the point of getting a gifts if it does come out of love, this just
goes to show that its all about you and them rather than the money you spend.
So show them that you care in the little ways like asking how their day was at school or telling them how
much you love them , really does go along way.
7. Parents Must Teach Them Good Morals
Teaching your young ones the way they should act or behave is most definitely a big aspect of parenting , making it your
responsibility yet again for them in that regard.As their guardians you’re the first thing you must note is that you’re the very first
people that they see when they enter this world, therefore you’re their first teachers as well.Teaching children things like how to
respect the elderly and how to be polite, are just some of the few thing that you have to consider.As mentioned earlier in this
post, when children learn things from a young age it’s harder for them to forget what the have been shown.So the sooner you
show them these things the better and also we as adults we have to lead by example , leading by example
is the best method ti use when teaching children how to have good morals.
8. Disciplining Children Is A Parents Responsibility
Even though this falls under teaching children morals they might be some essential points that you might have to look at, making
it your job to teach them how to be disciplined. However even when it comes comes to correcting them, you have to approach it
open minded and not use force when trying to correct them.Doing this will allow them to feel comfortable and show them that
you respect them, it will also give them the chance to explain themselves as well.Another thing that you might need to
understand as an adult is that children will not have the same views on certain things as you do.That being said when disciplining
them you might have to explain to them what they did wrong in a way in which they would understand, this will not only provide
clarity but will allow them to change.
So next time your about to discipline your children, try to reason with them and you’ll see how much better things will
get.Another thing you might want to know is that discipline shouldn’t be seen only in terms of behaviour, but it should also be
seen in terms of the attitude they have towards things like school.
Hope these things have helped you realize what your responsibilities are as a parent , these are just some of the things that you
might want to know in order to get your family to were you want it to be . As always if you want things to get better you have to
be more consistent with these practices.
