    I'm not sure if I'm qualified to give advice but I would say, listen, keep listening and listen with your ears and your eyes and your heart.

    Be good for yourself and for others ,do not do things that others don't want to make to you.

    Make your personal decisions with regard to what you'd want your child to decide in that same situation.

    Always keep in mind that whatever situation you find yourself in, your child is also in it with you.

    Allow and encourage open lines of communication from the very beginning. A lot of parents dont encourage "why", but your child is asking because they dont understand (this gets a little difficult when you have the teenage attitude though smile ). If you don't want them to follow other people blindly then dont have them follow you blindly.

    Your child is not your friend. I taught for several years and I could tell the kids who had parents that taught and loved them, disciplined and nurtured them. I could also tell the kids who had parents that treated them like just one of their friends.  These were the kids that were almost constantly discipline problems and had the worst attitudes in class.
    Kids need to understand that there are rules and limits to all aspects of life. If you love your child and teach them to live life responsibly and morally, you are doing a great job.

    Teach your children to be kind to others, work hard and do their best.  As a parent, love and value your children no matter what they do.  Tell them every day you are so glad and blessed to know and love them and that they have brought great joy to your life.

    - Start encouraging good manners from three years on. Get them to use “Please”, “thank you”, “thank you for having me”, “excuse me”, “sorry” etc and encourage them to use adults’ names whenever they can.

    - Respect the fact that children are feeling human beings too, who, like adults, need to be listened to, loved, admired and respected to function well.

    - Being consistent and following through on what you say, but equally so is listening to your child and apologising if you have made a mistake.

    Love never fails, whether you're playing, training, scolding or whatever.  Say it or do whatever it takes to convine your child of your love, then of God's love for him, her.

    I think you should play video games with your children. I don't have any children of my own, but i know people who do, and people who do that have a much better relationship with their kids, because it shows their kids that they respect their interests and also because, realistically speaking, it's the only thing you can do together on a day-to-day basis.
