Becoming A Better Parent

Becoming a better parent

 

     All parents can use some form of advice in order to become better parents.  There are no perfect parents today; all parents have made mistakes in parenting.  Parents need to listen to their children more often, spend active time with them, and try to be a role model that leads by example. 

 

     It is hard to imagine that there are parents who do not spend any time listening to their children because they consider it a waste of time.  True wasting of time comes when parents spend hours without doing anything productive that will influence the lives of their children.  Parents need to talk with their children when they are very young, listen to some of their issues so that difficult subjects will be easier to handle as they get older.  Parents need to lead by example.  Don’t let your children see you do something that you would not want them to do, or don’t let them hear you say something that you wouldn’t want them to say, instead lead by example.  It would be contradictory to tell your teenage daughter to stop seeing so many different guys when all she sees at home is the different men that you are involved with.  Parents can also teach their children what is important in life by demonstrating honesty, humility and responsibility.  You as parents are the first example your children look at.

 

     Children need the security that comes from knowing that they are wanted, accepted, loved, and respected.  Parents need to feel both comfortable and willing to show affection to their children.  If you are willing to take advice on how to become a better parent, then when your children grow up into adulthood, they will still look to you the parent for wisdom and advice on how to raise their own children.  When parents show their children that they are willing to listen, and be the best role model that they know how to be, it will play an essential part in their children’s lives, as they grow and perhaps, marry and build their own families.
