A person who gets a child and nurtures and raises the child is referred to as a parent. 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. It is not necessary that the parents of a child carry out the parenting duty. Children who have no parents are brought up by well-wishers who are known as 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. Children are brought up in different ways. These are crucial quality parenting skills.
Good parents show love to their children. A show of love and affection to a child is called love. In order to show love and affection to a child, a parent should spend time with the child, play together, have meals together, make visits together and show some love signs to the child. Feel-good hormones such as oxytocin are produced as a result of showing love to a child. They result in a good sense of calm, closer relationship and emotional warmth.
A good parent should practice positive parenting. Positive parenting is the act of telling the child only the positive experiences. Giving only positive experiences to children will facilitate experiencing positive things and passing on the positive experiences to the other generations. 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. Every child should have a close relationship with the parents so that he will be able to forward his/her wants to the parents or guardians. Healthy communication skills also promote good coordination of the body parts hence a good living.
Good parents are also good role models. Telling your child to stop certain behaviors and you as a parent you still have these behaviors is inappropriate. A parent should set a good example for the child. A parent should also show the child on how to carry out different activities. A parent should be disciplined and have a positive attitude and his/her child will still copy this.
Good upbringing of the child should be accompanied by some rules. In every place, there are rules that must be followed. A parent should also have his/her own set of rules to be followed by the children. The child is supposed to do what is expected of him/her at the right time.
This guide is important in the healthy upbringing of the child.
