Help For Parents-All Stages
Babies and children don't arrive with an Instruction manual, and often its helpful to have as many tips on positive parenting as you can. Parenting is rewarding and the positive rewards remain and live on through our greatest treasure , kids!
.. Our Personality Is Like..
Briefly of course, but I visulize the color spectrum for a moment.
Red, Orange, Yellow, Green,Blue,Indigo and Violet.
Blended , Bending , Perfect in Difference.
You are the First Leader In Their Lives...so
Children need their parents to parent not to be friends .
They find friends themselves ,recycle them all through their lives. They come and go ,some stay for a short while some remain til adulthood.
Parents on the other hand can be friendly ,but the role is always the position of authority and as we all know , we dont always like our bosses . But if theyre a fair and just boss we do respect them and know where we stand with them.
Does your son or daughter know where they stand with you ?
Are you flexible like that Rainbow, or Rigid like the Mountains below?
Do you know its ok to be both?
Quality v Quantity
In this modern ,technologically fast paced world ,it has become a common catch-phrase and if their were such a thing as "Parental Contracts" it would definately be up there among company policies.
Realistically both parents decide they need to work,actually that fact is not new really ,since time began, both parents worked,often laboring in nearby fields or towns but of course children stayed by the mothers side
I guess you could say childcare has progressed , or evolved.
Nothing will replace Real Time not even 'Quality time'
LISTEN WITH YOUR EARS AND YOUR HEART..
Whose voice to you hear the most in your home?
And if youre not sure how do listen try this:
How do I know if someone is listening to me?
Am I understood?
Do you they still like me even If i disagree with their opinion or decision?
Stay calm~ Smile alot~ ( It works)
Your motive and focus should be to keep communication open and like the rainbow bending where you need to bend all the while remaining true to yourself ,until you actually
Blend while Bending
