Parenting Advice For Difficult Kids

HONEST PARENTING

WHICH ROAD DO I HAVE TO TAKE TO REAR A GOOD CHILD?

All throughout the parenting process, you’ll find yourself thinking and even daydreaming about things like wonderful times you will spend with your child, but you have to put that one on hold just for now. Not that it’s not proper to dream bout your child’s future, it’s just that things happens differently in real life.

THE PROCESS OF BEING A NEW PARENT.

Being a parent is a life long experience. Parenting can be compared to riding a roller coaster, where along the way you will experience exhilarating thrills and even sometimes heart breaking downhills. You evolve from a “we” mentality (you and your spouse/partner) to an “us” mentality that includes your kids.

HERE ARE THE PROCESSES THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW TO BECOME SKILLED IN PARENTING.

Know all there is to know about you own child – we are all different by nature, and we all have a unique character aspect that identifies us to be ourselves.

It is a proven fact that most children copy their parents’ actions, their mannerisms and their desires to follow their parents footsteps, but there are also those children who do not want to become like their parents and most of the time defy them. The child that rebels against what you (as the parent) have been used to is the one for whom you will need to implement good parenting skills with because they will definitely upset you, leaving you feeling discouraged.

PARENTING IS A NEVER-ENDING JOB.

Parenting is nothing but a continuous process. Remember, parenting is never as easy as you would think it is going to be. Wouldn’t we all be the best parents if there was a parent guide? You have probably figured out by now that parenting is the hardest job in the world.

For example, your first response to your child’s question is vitally important, as it will possibly stick with your child for the rest of their lives. But sometimes kids come to us with questions at bad times of the day, like when you’re tired or just got home from work or are otherwise preoccupied.  If one day your child comes running to you and starts asking you like “mom/dad I need help”, will you say to them sorry, I am too busy now?  What you do at that point, when you might be at your most frustrated or tired, is most important to your child.

TEACH YOUR KIDS SELF-RELIANCE

Always remember to allow your child to earn things that they want and not for you not to give in to easily to their wants. To teach your child the value of self-sufficiency and to respect the true value of hard earned money, they will grow properly, this may be hard but this is a rewarding process and irreplaceable. Avoiding to spoil your child is your choice, but this is the most important time for you to show them and make then understand compassion, to be with them as they moved on towards adulthood. If you suddenly noticed that you constantly give in to your child’s whims, take a pause and ask yourself what made you do such a thing.

GET MORE COMPLIANCE FROM YOUR CHILD.

To gain more cooperation from their child, you must always use positive communication – You have to try phrasing your request or command in a much positive way as opposed to a negative way. By using rewards – You can focus on your child’s positive attitude instead of the negatives by trying to put a coin in a jar whenever your child starts doing something for the first time that you asked which in turn provides more cooperation from your child. I really love it every time I hear other kids say, “YES”, then you can tickle your child or even use humor just to see if you actually can get your child to say “YES” and by doing so you will gain more cooperation from your child.

COMMON CHILD AND PARENT PROBLEMS.

Children are growing up faster nowadays and at the average age of ten or even eleven they’re almost like young adults. By being active in your child’s school you will learn about their behavior while at school. In addition, it gives you more opportunity to bond with your kids and their friends.

MAKE MEMORIES WITH QUALITY FAMILY TIME.

With just a bit of planning and forethought you can create opportunities for happy memories with your kids.  Plan a family game night.  Or, set up a picnic at a local park with the kids and their friends and other parents.  You don’t have to do things that cost a lot of money or are elaborate–the point is to plan activities that you and your children will enjoy.

THE FOLLOWING TIPS ENSURE THAT YOUR FAMILY TIME WILL BE STRESS FREE AND WILL ENSURE THAT YOU WILL MAKE YOUR FAMILY MEMORIES LAST FOR A LIFETIME:

Try to set at least an hour or two aside with your family, before your next scheduled activity. Parents should turn off the television during dinner time so that you can focus on family conversations. During dinner, there should not be anyone talking on the cell phone or playing electronic game (except for emergencies).
