reminder for you and it will help you follow through with your plan.The reason

why most people don’t become better is because they don’t really follow

through with their plans, even if they had all the right material that they need in

your method , you can write down some things that youèll like to achieve at

the end of the week like for instance.

between  you and your spouse on who can get things of the list quicker.

critical part of becoming a better parent, Bonding allows the both of you to find

means of how you can easily relate with one another.


This special relationship will also allow your children to be more open with

whats on their mind, giving you the opportunity to understand them and how

they're really feeling. Spending quality time with your young ones is not only

4. Staying Committed To Your Parenting Style


In order for you to become a better parent you’ll have to stay committed to

your method of parenting, as mentioned earlier its only way to ensure that you

put yourself in a better position to be the person that will help them develop.


However its important to know that being consistent does take sometime but,

you’ll just have to remain focused even when you might not be seeing the

results aren’t showing because they will come eventually.Just a small point to

note is that ,if you constantly mix up your methods of choice it’ll only make you

becomes less consistent.So try to stick to one thing only, this will help you

avoid unnecessary  information.



5. Self Care for you.


Taking care of your children can be very tiring, especially with everything else

going on in your work life and other daily activities.With all this you might

become too busy to take care of yourself, I know you want the best for them

but if aren't at your best then how are you going to put in the right amount of

effort that you need  to.


That being said you too as a parent must make sure that you have enough

time to do nothing but relax, spending some away time from your children is

very important for a health relationship for a couple.So going out for dinner or

on holiday for a few days to help you get rid of all the things your mind’s

stressing  over.


Having Self care strategies will help you maintain a balance between yourself

and other things that you might be involved in, having some “me” time is

essential whether you spend it reading a book , watching your favourite show

or even taking a nice relaxing bath which you’ll definitely need some

bath salts for has to  be done to help you stay health mentally.



6. Leading By Example


As a parent you have to be a good role model to your children and this can

only be done when you lead by example , doing this will allow you to be a

much better  parental figure in their lives.


When teaching children how to be respectful , polite and any other moral value

you’ll find that most of the time they’ll only learn what they have to if they see

you practicing the same thing. Research has shown that children usually learn

by seeing and repeating what the have been shown, as a guardian its very

important for you to take advantage of that aspect and try to be the best role

model that you can be.


So next time if you’re trying to teach them morals , try to show them some

examples by acting the part.You’ll notice that as you continue to do this it ,

you’ll  won’t have to super impose things all the time.

roles are , this will help you make better decisions when it comes to your child.


This will also allow you to concentrate on things that will not benefit them , this

brings up yet another important point you might want to here.Usually some of

us parents often feel intimidated by the way our fellow peers are looking after

their children, but if you fully know what roles to follow then it will make you

have more  confidence in yourself.



8. Showing Your Love & Support.

involved in their life then it can affect them negatively.Showing your children

that you love and support them every step of the way, makes you become a 

better  parent.


Being their for your loved ones when they need you is critical for the health of

the family, show them that you care by starting to attend their ; concerts,

spccer games and even their teacher confrontation sessions. By doing this it

will have a very large effect on their confidence, which will help them succeed

in the future.

with easy access to the internet it has become easy for anyone to get

information.So by making sure you give them content that is appropriate for

their age group is a must , because what they see and watch can have a very

big influence on their behavior. As well as their attitude towards others.

online from time to time , however this doesn’t mean that you should become

strict.Just check on them once in a while.












10. Be A Good Listener


Children at times tend to have way more energy than us, am I right ?.So you

have to try and listen to what they have to say even if its one of those

questions that’s been asked numerous times.Doing this in a way , provides

them with a sense of support  because they know fully well that their parents

are always willing to give  them attention.

your love and care.If you’re consistent with that you’ll , make your job as a
