    The b.i.b.l.e. Yes, that's the book for me....No. Seriously.
    The Bible covers everything. It's a great book with useful tips for parenting.

    It's hard to be a perfect parent. That said, all we can do is our best when parenting. I do believe a large percentage of the way our children behave is a reflection on us parents. Learned behavior has much to answer for but then you have to remember that once they start school, the children tend to spend more time with teachers and pupils than parents. This means it is equally important how good their school is with discipline etc.
    Children are like sponges before the age of five and pick up so much from their parent's behavior. They mimic. Angry parents often make for angry children. One of the worst things a parent can do is shout constantly by way of discipline.
    I wrote a hub that covers some of what your question asks.

    I was in the supermarket last night.

    The woman behind me was wearing a scarf on her head.  Her hair was shaved.  Her little boy stood beside her shyly asking if she could buy him a rubber octopus that was sitting at the front end of the cash register. 

    When I saw that woman, my eyes filled up.  I felt ashamed. 
    This strong, courageous woman, obviously been victimized by cancer, is shopping for her and her child.  Loving him.  Caring for him. 

    Time is all we have and it's never on our side.   Treat each moment preciously.  Tell your children you love them often.  Hug your children every day.  Don't let a moment escape without understanding you are the front lines.  In sickness and health, a parent is the child's world.  Don't take your children for granted.  Let them blossom in to the individuals that they will become without stifling their inner inhibitions.  Don't listen to others about what you shoulda coulda woulda.  Don't let others influence your beliefs.  And don't let other people tell you that you are doing it the wrong way.  Love your children with all your heart.  When love is all you have to give, you'll soon realize, nothing else matters.

    In the words of my 22 yr old step daughter. Parenting doesn't come with a guide book it come naturally no one is a perfect parent. but everyone who tries can be a good parent. I just recently became a parent on 6/14/13 but i have a 7 yr old step son and i raised my brothers and sisters and raising your brothers and sisters and having a step son is nothing compared to having a child of your own you can read all the books you want but that's not going to make a perfect parent. All you can do is be the best you. To be honest i wish there was a guide to good parenting but there's not and one thing of advice i can give that was given to me was there is never a stupid question when it comes to being a parent and asking the only stupid question is the one not asked. if i don't to do i ask other parents advice and i go with the majority vote.

    Parenting is tough there is no perfect parent it all depends on  the kind of traits parents have or role models in the family. A child can grow into an obedient  being from looking at the older generation
