Parenting: Problems Faced And How To Be A Good Parent

Why does it become so difficult to raise a child? The answer lies within you as a parent. It is the parent’s duty to help the child lead a happy life, a life far from stress. The most common indication of a troubled child is change in behaviour; the child either goes in his or her own shell or becomes very violent so that he or she is heard. The reason behind this is the lack of attention from the parents. As parents when the adults forget to fulfil their duties, the child tends to find other means to seek attention. As a parent, it is you duty to look into the needs of the child and help them when they are in trouble.

Some simple tips if followed will certainly help you be good parents:

1. Be a good example: Never think that the child is small, and will not come to know anything. Your children always observe you and will try to imitate you too. They are said to be very keen observers, they know how you will react on what. So be careful before you say anything in front of them.

2. Love your child with care: Do love your child but do not go overboard. Do not get possessive about your kid, do not think your child can do nothing wrong and never protect your child if he has done something wrong. You will end up raising a bad citizen.

3. Know your kid’s life: Be involved. Try to know what is going on in your child’s life. Is everything fine. Is he good in class, does he have friends, does he need any help with studies or friends. When your child comes back, ask him about his day, make him talk about it and solve the problems if there are any. Be friends with your child.

4. Grow with your child: Another important thing that the parents should remember, your child is growing up with every passing day, so things that you could say or tell him earlier will not be required to be told after a while. Give your child his or her own space so that they do not feel suffocated and like to come back to you when they feel like talking to someone.

5. Make some rules: Rules helps in keeping your children disciplined. Make some rules in the house and make them follow. In this way, you can give them their space yet have a hold over them.
