    There are so many, but I've raised four children and can give one of teh most important tips of all - don't always heed everyone elses advice.  Each child is different and must be parented differently.  Listening to everyone else can produce stress and guilt in a parent.  Parent with your heart - listen well to your children and get to know their individual needs.  When people criticize how you parent, remember, they never walked in your shoes.

    Good parenting is about listening to your child's needs and not ignoring your child's conversations. Pay attention always, and never restrict your child from doing what he or she likes to do. Too many boundaries can make things go sour, trust is very important. and make sure you  show your child you  love him or the same and keep tract on what they do or where they go always know where your child is at and know your child's friends. As a parent you should keep your child safe and communication is the best way to know your child. Try keep up with the modern day lifestyle so you can understand you child's needs

    Be consistent and always know where they are and with whom. Don't be too strict with them, they will rebel. Trust them.

    Trust your instincts and you won't go wrong.  This is the hardest job you'll ever face and the most rewarding. First of all earn their respect because without it they'll walk all over you. Don't try to be perfect. Perfect parents are far from perfect, but their kids learn it's okay just to be who they are.

    Three words:  time, time and most of all TIME.  My late wife and I raised two wonderful sons.  Time was truly the key.  Great question.

    I will have to give you my advice as a teacher and parent of three kids. Love them, spoil them in any way you can , but you be equal in dispersing this attention. Set good examples for your children , set guidelines and rules. Most of all the thing I learned was to develop an open communication line with them. My mother and I had to do this. I was about to run away from things, when I was 17 and my mother helped me place an open communication line there. She told me I could express my feelings to her and she would listen. She would ask that I give her equal respect to hear her side of the issue. Strange thing we learned how to be real with each other.

    The last thing I would say is find the best in your children and treat them like they are treasured. I once took a child in my class from a head down on a desk to believing he was intelligent and could show us all. He did just that. It was my little miracle called you are somebody, and I know this.

    Your a father and you need to teach them things. Believe in them and show them the way. My father had a loud voice, and I was always not as close as mom.
    I would follow my dad where ever I could just to be near him. Dad did not always know that I was there. Sometimes I put my own life in jeopardy and never knew it , until I was on the edge of following off a cliff or drowning in the ocean. Dads need to be observant of their children.  Take some of my advice and your kids will feel special and hopefully find that best inside of them that you provided.

    Consistency is most important. Set rules about appropriate behavior, and don't back down on them because you want to avoid confrontation. Common sense ought to be used in how severe punishment is, but I recommend punishments that are beneficial to the household - for example, kids are fighting and hitting each other? Chores! Vacuum, clean, wash dishes. Do not use corporal punishment (no spanking, etc), giving chores are far more effective and help the kid "make up" for mistakes.

    Support your kids' interests. Give them opportunities to explore new ideas and hobbies. Take your kid out into the community, to museums, to (age appropriate) movies. Support your kid's achievements and encourage them to challenge themselves.

    READ. Take your kid to the library. If your kid is young, read to them every night. Make your kid read to you if s/he is learning. Read, read, read.

    Do not use the TV as a babysitter. TV is a part of society, yes, but TV addictions are incredibly prevalent these days - set a standard and play outside with your kid, or play board games, color, anything. Make sure your kid does something that's physically active regularly - sports, hiking, whatever.

    Finally: just be there, and love your kid unconditionally.
