Appreciate your child’s positive behaviour:
The more any behaviour gets attention the more it gets reinforced and will be more likely to repeat. Appreciate the positive behaviour with clapping and smile. Avoid the negative behaviour or just firmly say that “it was wrong and inappropriate.”
Share your household responsibilities with your child:
Household responsibilities teach children important life lessons related to duty, cooperation, community and hard work. People who learn such lessons early in life are more likely to become well-adjusted adults. Successful parents make household chores a part of the family’s routine and culture. This sets children up for future success. “remember to put all the shoes in shoe racks daily.”
Build a strong relationship:
Children from low-conflict families are happier and more successful in the long run, as compared to children from high-conflict families. One of the most important things you can do to benefit your children is to build a strong relationship with your spouse.
Let you child initiate things:
Give your child a sense of security:
Focus more on contribution and less on achievement
Always highlight their progress even if it is minute. Talk about the challenges you face and what you’re doing to overcome them. Let them make mistake also let them face the natural consequences if they are not too harsh for them.
Your mental health is as important as your child’s:
Don’t always wait for that one emotional outburst that blames and affects everybody around you. Keep a check on your stress level.
Always remember that each day with your child is a milestone for both your child and you as a parent, celebrate it. Don’t miss even a single opportunity to smile. Take small breaks to spend a little time on things which make you happy. Happy parent makes a strong, healthy and happy family.
