How to be a good parent?

There is no such thing as a perfect existence. We all know that. It is the nature of a human being, to err. However, each one of us must make it our business to be good in everything that we do. As much as possible, stick to your standards and principles. As a parent, we all have our own flaws and shortcomings to our very own kids. No doubt about that. The question is, are we satisfied by the way things are going on inside our own household? Are we harboring a good and harmonious relationship with every family member? Are you, at any rate, a good parent? These are simple questions but can not be easily answered by any parent. Why? Simply for a reason that a lot of things are easier said than done. A parent may know the rules of the game and the technical and theoretical knowledge and approach in raising a family but surprisingly when she plunges into the very scenario, it is more likely that he/she trips.

I am not that good in parenting but please let me share with you some of my insights on how to be a good parent.

1. Do not underestimate your children. Even at a very young age, talk with them as if they are of your age. You may not know it but kids are better listeners than adults. They have this tendency to absorb everything that adults tell them. So, there, be careful in uttering words.
2. Treat your kids with utmost respect. I guess, everybody deserves to be respected regardless of their age. If you respect a person, rest assured that you will also gain that respect from that person.
3.Try not to shout when you are mad. I find this very hard to do. Emotions are very hard to control especially when you are at the very apex of that particular emotion.But at least, try to control it. Any outburst of emotion may affect your child emotionally and psychologically.
4. Lead by example. This is the best rule on how to be a good parent. If you are trying to educate your kid, start with yourself first so that your kids will surely follow.

I will try to give you more of my parenting techniques in my future posts. For now, happy parenting.
