Guide to Parenting
A parent is a father or a mother who gives birth to a child and brings him/her up. The source of anything is also known as a parent. Parenting, on the other hand, is the process of promoting the good emotional, physical, intellectual and social development of a child since he/she was born until he/she reaches the age of 18 years. Not all parents carry out the parenting role. Orphaned children in children’s home and orphanages are brought up by guardians. The following are the parenting duties; disciplining the child, provision of basic needs, educating the child, encouragement and good development of the mind and the body. There are many ways of child upbringing. These are crucial quality parenting skills.
Good parents show love to their children. Love is a great affection and liking for your child. Playing with a child, going out, eating meals together, listening carefully, spending a lot of time together and showing love signs will show love to your child. A child will always feel well as a result of feel-good hormones produced due to showing affection to a child. This prolactin and oxytocin result in a healthy relationship between the child and the parents and a quality sense of calm.
Positive parenting is important in the quality upbringing of a child. Positive parenting is the giving of positive experiences to the child. A child who was given positive experiences by his/her parents will go through positive experiences in life and pass them to his/her children later in life. A parent should go to the park with his or her child, ride bikes, play, crack jokes and carry out other activities together so as to promote good child development.
A good parent communicate well with his/her child. A good parent is capable of listening, understanding and implementing what the child wants to be done. A child should be open to his/her parents so that he/she will communicate every issue disturbing him/her without the fear of being punished. Healthy communication skills also promote good coordination of the body parts hence a good living.
A good parent should be a good role model. A child will always copy his/her parents. All parents should have good behaviors so that children can copy them. A parent should also show the child on how to carry out different activities. Since a child copies his/her parents, a child will have good discipline and attitude if the parents also have these qualities.
A good parent should establish good rules. In every setting, for example, a country, rules are important in governing different activities. A good parent should also set rules which should be followed by the children when in the home or away from home. Children will be able to perform the right activities at the stipulated time.
