How to Become the Best Parent?

This is a question that every parent wants to know the answer to because parenting is one of the most demanding responsibilities and a very beautiful experience. Many parents feel unprepared and do not know how to become one. 

We have prepared some tips that will help you develop a positive bond with your child and these are:

Spending time with the child 

Time flies fast in modern day. First, we dedicate most of it to our work. After finishing it and returning to home, we have our chores which are equally necessary. Between all of this, we have snippets of time for our child like sitting on the dining table during breakfast or dinner. This gives us quality time to spend with our children. 

Talk to them about anything. 

Ask them questions like "How was your day?", "What did you learn in school today?", "What was the bravest thing you did today?" You can take some time for interaction when you are doing a chore. The biggest benefit here is you get things done pretty fast while talking to the child. If the child can perform and is willing, then you can assign him a chore and ask for some help. Do not forget the language children instantly understand, that is playing. 

Take out a board game, blocks or go outside. 

For the child, playing is an activity that brings enjoyment, however, it can be stress relief for you as well. You can schedule a special time for your child and allow your child to decide how he wants to spend time with you. 

Working on Communication 

Communication is a vital part of a parent-child relationship. Young children's brains are still developing. When you are saying something to your child, explain it to him properly. He understands your expectations and acts upon it. Suppose a problem arises. You can talk to your child about it and try to find a solution with him. Parents who teach their child problem-solving at a young age lead to cultivation of their thought process. This nurtures their ability to think critically and in a non-judgemental manner. This plays a critical role when he grows up.

Encourage your child to talk and express their feelings. 

Remember, you should not judge, or else he cannot trust you to share things. You must try to create a safe space for him so he can open up to you. Sometimes the child does not tell us or is unable to communicate his troubles because we either overreact or invalidate his feelings. Listening to him might avert something serious from happening.

Maintain discipline and keeping the love unconditional 

A parent's ultimate role is to correct the child and provide proper guidance. The toughest part of it is how you choose to express while guiding, and this determines its impact. There comes a situation when you hold your child accountable. As his parent you have to do it mindfully without insulting, shaming and fault-findings! This could lead to the child harboring resentment and his self-esteem takes a hit. Try to reason with the child, teach empathy, and encourage when you are discipling him. For children, realizing their mistakes and correcting them is a powerful learning experience they can have in life.The child should know you love him unconditionally. You will be there when he needs help or guidance.

Focus on being an ideal role model

We always ask parents to model good behaviors for their children. Why is that? Young children learn a lot by observing people around them. A situation gets on your nerves and your anger knows no limits. Before expressing it and acting out, ask yourself if you want your child to show these same behaviors when he is angry? Or do you want him to calm himself down and handle his emotions? That is why you also need to engage in these behaviors as well, because your child is going to learn it from you.

Exhibit behaviors you want your child to pick up from you: showing courtesy, treating everyone with kindness, being honest. 

Talk to people politely and show respect. Helping others, expecting nothing in return. Say thank you and give compliments to people. Accept the fact that you have limitations Every parent wants to become the perfect parent. This goal helps them to improve and they really try hard. But the reality makes you feel you are not the perfect one and there are flaws in us. It may differ totally from the vision we are trying to achieve. The most realistic fact about parenting is that you are imperfect, and that does not mean you are a bad parent. Like every leader, you, as a family leader, have your distinct strengths and flaws. The best way to deal with this is to remember your strengths and dedicatedly work on your flaws. 

Understanding your limitations and valuing your well-being is crucial for effective parenting.

Have realistic expectations from your spouse and children. Take yourself lightly because sometimes you don't always have a solution to every problem. If you find things becoming overwhelming for you, then prioritize the areas that are important instead of doing everything in one go. Value your own well-being by taking some rest or a hobby you enjoy the most.
