When it comes to parenting……………………………

Tuesday, February 23, 2010


Friends I personally believe in that Parenting or parenthood is something which typically and naturally comes to people. Raising a child is all about having good parenting skills and learning good parenting techniques. As we know the fact that no absolute rules are exist for parenting. Generally parents just learn from their own experience. Most of the things are just come so naturally, like feeding the baby, clothing the baby and taking care of baby. But when a kid grows and other baby is born, parenting becomes more than simply handling the child's daily needs. Sometimes mother and father both feels they need some help in deciding the best way to parent their kids.

As per the study an effective parent is intentional parents, who appreciate and understands a kid's needs. Actually there are no "ideal parents" just as there are no "ideal kids." Sometimes parents strive really very hard for becoming perfect parents can only cause only stress and frustration. Parents give so many things to their kids every day.

Just do simple things, show your love. Just tell your kids you love them, send them a messages, “I trust you, I believe in you; I know you can handle life situations and you are the most important person in my life." Give a tide hug, whenever they need your touch, love and support. Just be with them every time.

As per this famous quote,

Your children need your presence more than your presents. ~Jesse Jackson
