Parenting is a huge step in life. As the parent of a newborn you might feel anxiety come upon you. How will you teach your child? What is good and bad? Most of the time you will teach them what you’ve been taught, but what if you’re wrong? What if your ideals are wrong? You begin to question and suddenly you have so many unanswered questions. Thats ok because that is what parenting is all about. You won’t have all the answers, but you can look for them!

Listed below are some basic parenting tips that I feel every parent should know.

Tip 1: You must remember to be patient and understand with your child. Whether they are a newborn or in their teen years they still won’t be “perfect”. They never will be! It is your job as a parent to guide and instruct, but not to force or enforce. You have to teach them and the way you teach them is by showing and doing. Try to be as patient as you can with your children. They will notice.

Tip 2: Your child will often doubt their abilities for numerous reasons. Sometimes it is other kids at schools or the media sending negative thoughts. It is your job to fill them with confidence but at the same time remaining truthful. You should embrace their goals and dreams. You want them to succeed don’t you? Keep confident in order to keep them confident!

Tip 3: Overloading never helped anyone, especially not a child. Your child will often have many activities going on in their lives but it is your job to see they can handle it all. If they’re falling behind in their school work because of sports, cut some sports. Their main job should be school. Allow them to have time for homework and studying. It is not uncommon for children to be overloaded so ensure you are the one to enforce breaks!

Tip 4: Always prioritize family time. Family time should be a sacred time. It allows you and your children to bond and discuss. This is a time for connection, never be afraid to tell your child your own dreams, goals, and aspirations. You will be surprised by your children. They look up to you for so many things.

Tip 5: Create something that your entire family does together. It can be board game night or even a movie night. Whatever it is make it a ritual. This will make a cemented family activity and could even turn into a tradition. Make the best of these moments and always remain in good spirits at this time. Even if you’re not feeling it.

Parenting isn’t easy, but who said it would be? These tips should help you get along. Use them, experiment with them, and modify if you have to. Find what works for you and stick with it!
