TIPS ON BEING A POSITIVE PARENTS

Elizabeth Hartley-Brewer and Cassandra Jardine have vital tips on being positive parents. The following are suggested panacea:

X       BE IN CHARGE

Show that you are in charge by setting rules and boundaries. Children should not be given adults responsibilities.

You have the benefit of past experience. Use it wisely to guide them.

X        SHARPEN YOUR LISTENING SKILL

Listen to their difficulties with non-judgmental ear. Appreciate that their problems,although they seem trivial to

you, can be very real to them. Help them work out solutions in a step-by-step way.

X         CELEBRATE THEIR LITTLE ACHIEVEMENTS

Show enthusiasm and celebrate their achievements, no matter how small and share their passion where you can.

X             PRAISE THEIR EFFORTS

Focus on efforts  rather than results. Although results are important, acknowledge efforts your child  has

made to improve or reach certain targets.

 

X             BUILD THEIR CONFIDENCE

Boost their   self-belief and self confidence by reminding them that you are their  biggest fans,whatever they

achieve.

X               ENCOURAGE THEM IN THEIR  PASSION

Encourage them to pursue  their genuine ,legitimate and decent passion. When you don’t agree with them,you

only need to counsel them and show them the reason you don’t agree with them.
