A person who gets a child and nurtures and raises the child is referred to as a parent. Parent also stands for the source of something. Parenting, on the other hand, is the process of promoting the good emotional, physical, intellectual and social development of a child since he/she was born until he/she reaches the age of 18 years. Not all parents carry out the parenting role. Orphaned children in children’s home and orphanages are brought up by guardians. The following are the parenting duties; disciplining the child, provision of basic needs, educating the child, encouragement and good development of the mind and the body. Children are brought up in different ways. Consider the following things in case you want your child to have good discipline.
Good parents show love to their children. A show of love and affection to a child is called love. To show love to your children, simply spend ample time with them, listen to their complains well and show some love signs such as hugging. A child will always feel well as a result of feel-good hormones produced due to showing affection to a child. They result in a good sense of calm, closer relationship and emotional warmth.
Positive parenting is important in the quality upbringing of a child. The act of providing the child with only good experiences is known as positive parenting. Giving only positive experiences to children will facilitate experiencing positive things and passing on the positive experiences to the other generations. A parent should go to the park with his or her child, ride bikes, play, crack jokes and carry out other activities together so as to promote good child development.
A good parent communicate well with his/her child. A parent should have the ability to listen and serve the demands of the child. In order to understand the needs of the child, as a parent one is supposed to promote good communication with the child. Good integration also promotes coordination of different organs which helps in maintaining a healthy body.
Good parents are also good role models. It is impossible for a child to stop a behavior which his/her parents still have. A parent should set a good example for the child. A good parent should explain to a child on how important activities are carried out. Since a child copies his/her parents, a child will have good discipline and attitude if the parents also have these qualities.
Good upbringing of the child should be accompanied by some rules. All places have rules and regulations which govern how things are done. A home setting should have rules that must be followed by the children. The child is supposed to do what is expected of him/her at the right time.
This guide is important in the healthy upbringing of the child.
