    The way you look after your children, the way you raise your future generations. Most of the parents do not learn parenting their children in a better way and simply treat their children the way they were treated by their parents. We know we all have a daily hectic life and we hardly get time to do a better parenting in our little time. But the fact is that the beautiful years of our sons and daughters would never come back and if we do not devote time for our children, we will be repenting later.

    I believe in active parenting rather than just letting them grow up like weeds in a garden.  Good parents are parents that enjoy raising their children rather than looking at the task like a burden. Good parents are aware that as they raise they children, they are creating their children's past.

    A good parent puts their children's welfare above their own. They do not lose their temper when they are disciplining them and they discipline to teach rather than punish.

    And a good parent has their children's back.

    I think a good parent is one that knows how to be a mature adult, but can also remember what it was like to be a child. I don't mean just being fun and playful, but remembering how hard it was to understand the world. If you can remember how you  liked things to be explained to you and what made you happy as a child, you are well on your way to being a good parent. Also, a good parent is one that listens to instinct often, not just what other people say is good or bad.

    A good parent takes time to play with there kids and have fun with them and be there for them when they need some one to talk to with good structured environment. Teaching them new things each day and taking in every moment because before you know it they will be all grown up.My cousin has this verse she says.
    Dirty dishes prove I feed my family, a full bin means I clean up after their messes, messy floors mean I let my children have fun, pile of unfolded laundry means I keep my family in clean clothes, wet bathroom means I bathe my kids! So the next time you walk into my house and see a "mess" think twice before you judge. Every parent is different and has different views on how to bring up there kids.

    Good parenting means being unselfish, mature, and responsible. It also means being humble and humanistic. It is treating children with the utmost respect and consideration. It is guiding children and respecting, nurturing, and encourage their individuality and innate talents. It is realizing that children are individuals with their own wants, beliefs, goals, and desires. 

    Good parenting is not using upmanship and playing powergames with your children.  It is not comparing one child to another, expecting all of your children  to be alike or to your approximation of what a "good/perfect child" should be.  It is not expecting your child to be an exact replica of you.  It is not forcing your ideas, beliefs, and ideologies down your children's throats and disavowing them if they elect to disagree with you.

    Good parenting is encouraging your child's innate talents and interests. It is preordaining a child to live YOUR goals, dreams, and life. It is considering your child's ultimate happiness although his/her goals or lifepath may not be your own respective goals or lifepath. For example, if your child is an introverted, artistic type, do not make him/her over to be an extroverted, dramatic type.  Accept your child as is so long as he/she is not harming others or indulging in illegal/delinquent activities.

    Good parenting is realizing that children will rebel and/or grow away from you, seeking his/her own identity.  Many parents feel that rebellion is delinquent and an umbrage to their parental authority. They seem to want their children to be controllable automatons instead of thinking, independent individuals.  Many parents feel threatened by their teenage children for this reasons-they want their children to be children psychologically when such is no longer necessarily the case. Just because children are rebelling and seeking their own identity does not negate their loving and respecting you as a parent. 

    Good parents know as their role must progress from parent to friend as their children mature.  They are comfortable with the fact that their adult children are individuals with lives of their own.  They are not intrusive parents as they have lives of their own.  They live and let live as far as their adult children go.
