Parenting Tips

Do you ever feel like your kids are in charge ? You are not Alone. We love our kids so much that they end up taking advantage of us. But it does not have to be that way. You have the ability and talent to be the best parent possible. Our unconditional love can’t and should not get in the way of us being good parents.

Today, I will offer some tips that will allow us show our kids that we love them and we are in charge.

1. Real Reward:
We tend to remember the bad things they do and forget to encourage and praise them for the good they do. Adults underestimate kids; they are have superior intelligences ,and they tend to remember a lot more than we can even imagine. If a child is starving for your attention, they they might do something bad because they get more attention by doing so. Yes, I agree that we must scold them for bad things ,but we equally must be cognitive of their good deeds. When I say rewards them, I don’t mean giving them candy or toys;rather, we must just say a nice and encouraging word such as good baby or you are smart child. More is less;the simplest rewards are the best. read more
