Positive Parenting

Being a parent is one of the most challenging jobs anyone could have; however, it is also the most rewarding. There is no right or wrong to parenting; as long as your child is happy, you are doing the right thing. Here are some things I learned to be a positive parent to my three-year-old son.

  1. Let your child solve his problems. I always want to be there for my child. Say, “Mommy, Help,” if you need me to help you, I tell him. Often, I let him be. As long as there is no immediate danger, I let him figure it out.
  2. Create a positive routine—a routine for when he wakes up and before going to bed.
  3. Appreciate what the child does. “Thank you for cleaning up” is what I tell him whenever he helps put out his toys. It is essential to appreciate the little things they do.
  4. Teaching children to be assertive. I encourage him whenever he feels he cannot do it or gets frustrated. As simple as “You can do it” can do so much.
  5. Cultivate an attitude of respect. Respect begets respect. If you show your child that you respect them, they will reciprocate.

Which of these tips do you do with your child? Or, if you have more to add to the list, please comment below.
