5 Good Parenting Tips | Qualities of Good Parents | ParentHood

Parenting is the process of raising kids through physical, emotional, social and intellectual aspects of life. It is the responsibility of the parents to guide and protect their kids at every stage. The parents work together to provide the basic needs to their kids to lead a good life.
Parenting is an experience of life that has lots of ups and downs. No doubt, every parent is a good parent but parents need to have patience to guide their kids in the right direction. A parent who looses his or her patience at an early stage would likely have a stubborn or shy kid. It is advisable to be friends with your kids from the starting so that they respect you, listen you and share everything with you. Here, I am sharing 5 good parenting tips that will help each parent to understand their kids well and be a better parent for their kids.
1. Be a Role Model
The kids are the part of their parents, so it is obvious that they would enact as their parents do since childhood. So, the first and the foremost tip for a good parenting is to be a role model for your kids. If you don't practice yourself then you can't teach your kids to follow it. So, first implement the habits in yourself and then your kids would follow the same by looking at you.

For example: If you want your kids to learn the importance of keeping their dirty clothes in the laundry then you need to do the same. Kids would watch your task and then they would start keeping their dirty clothes in the laundry.


2. Show Them Your Love
Every parent loves their kids, so why not show them in different ways. A good parent not only loves their kids from heart but they also show their love through actions. Few people believe that too much love spoils their kids but it isn't true. No matter what your kids do, you should love them the same way. You should show them love by hugs and kisses, encouraging them to do better, praising them on their achievements (give gifts) and making them understand that you will always love them.

For example: If your kids have lost a match then you should sit and encourage them to do better next time. You should offer them love and support by hugging them and going on practice sessions. Applaud when they do better, this way they would feel better and excel to do better.


3. Sit and Talk With Them
Communication is the best way to listen to your kids and make them understand your point. A good parent should make it a point to sit and talk with their kids every day for at least 10 minutes. This helps to build up a better relationship with your kids. Kids would feel secure and comfortable to share their troubles with their parents. Hence, you would know what your kids are going through in life.

For example: If you have a good communication relationship with your kids then if someone bullies your kids then they would come and talk to you about it. You can handle the situation and make your kids feel comfortable. But if there is a communication gap between you and your kids then they would think before sharing their bad experiences with you. This way the kids would not have a guidance and they would end up giving their own reactions (which could be not appropriate).


4. Set Consistent Routines
It is difficult to teach discipline to kids, so you should set consistent routines to make them familiar with a disciplined environment. Don't forget to follow the routine yourself too! Set some rules that should be followed by each family members. Don't be too strict with rules, keep them reasonable and fair. Kids might not follow them from starting, but your constant support and understanding will make them disciplined soon. Also tell your kids about the consequences of not following the rules. Don't scare them with consequences, but let them understand the difference between good and bad.

For example: If you want your kids to wake up early and exercise every day then you should follow the same routine. Also tell them the benefits of waking up early and exercising Soon, your kids would follow the same routine. Also punish them (not in a harsh way) if they don't follow the routine. Give them light punishment like cut their digital screen time or make them do some extra household work.


5. Don't Compare With Others
These days competition is on high level, so few parents want their kids to excel in ever field. Such parents compare their kids with other kids (from their families or neighbourhood) and push them to study harder to be on the top. A good parent should never do this. Every kid has different potential and capability. Understand what your kids are good at and encourage them to do well in the field of their interest. Parents should motivate kids to study hard and score good marks, but they should not compare or compel their kids to do better than others. Let the kids understand the importance of everything and do better themselves with your support and guidance.

For example: If your kids are not scoring well in studies then don't compare their marks with other students. Talk to your kids and understand the reason behind their low marks. Help them to study well and work harder to score better marks. Appreciate their small achievements of scoring better and make them believe that you are with them no matter how much they score. But this doesn't mean that if your kids are not interested in studies then you be lenient with them, you need to be strict in some situations (but it should be in limits and in controlled manner) for the betterment of your kids future.


These are main 5 Good Parenting Tips that should be considered by every parent. As your child grows, you need to have a flexible parenting approach which should change with time. Try to incorporate ways and methods which are appropriate for the age of your kids. Have patience and be friendly with your kids to make them better humans for tomorrow.
