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

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

that you had would help them a huge deal , so make sure that you do them that




4.Love & Care

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.

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


In order to make the parenting process much easier on you, its good to start

leading by example.Children usually like to imitate 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 remember.



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 like at all and this has to change.

When raising children we always have to show them that you support their every

step, even when it comes to what they want to pursue with their lives.Let them do

what makes them feel happy and besides, everyone has a talent and maybe the

thing that they’re doing will lead them to something great.

You always have to encourage then and let them know that, if they put their mind

to it they will achieve it.Always be there to support them, it will really benefit them

in a long run.



10. Play Time


When raising children one of the most overlooked things is play time , yes this

part of growth is extremely important for them.By letting them go out and explore ,

you help the increase the way the view things.One of the things I’ve noticed today

is that 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.



11. Faith


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




12. Health Check


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 importance.You can start by

making sure you take them for medical check ups and teaching them a few

things about how to clean , but health also covers the aspect of eating too.Giving

your children a balanced diet will enable them to grow proper with lacking any

nutrients, try to get them in the habit of eating health foods.









13. Sharing your time.


Another critical aspect of bringing up a child is making sure that you spend some

quality time with them is essential, doing this will help you strengthen the bong

you had with them. Being involved in the lives of your children will allow them to

become more open to you about how they really feel, so always try to make time

for them to create those special relationships that will last forever.


There you go , thats the checklist that each parent needs , especially if you're a 

newbie to parenting.So make sure each day you try to cross these things out as
