My Parenting Mantra

Most of you know that I am not a mommy yet, but that doesn’t make me any less parent! I have my own definition for parenting and today I am going to share the same with you. Being a foster child, I’ve learned what exactly it requires to be a good parent to my future kids. I believe most of you will relate to this post!

There are so many awesome blogs about parenting that I love to read. But they all focus on little kids or at the max, teenagers. I’ve hardly come across any good reads about how to be a good parent when your child is all grown up. Especially in India, where people value family more than anything and still have problems. The whole environment that our parents build, affects the child positively or negatively. Setting parenting goals are one thing but when parents fail to upgrade them with time, then arises the real problem!

I have had my share of good and bad experiences as a kid and the learning still continues. Here are the few things that parents must make a note of while dealing with your kids, no matter how grown-up and independent they are.

Build Trust!

When a child can trust a parent with everything, being a parent it is important to give them enough chances to prove their trustworthiness. When parents trust the decisions made by the child, they are trusting the education and nurturing given to the child over the years.

Teach Them Charity!

Parents must tell their kids to earn responsibly as well as spend thoughtfully. It’s okay to work hard and accumulate wealth, but until a child is not taught about charity and good deeds, he or she will not understand the value of money.

Listen Up!

Parents should pay attention to the body language and words uttered by kids. Mocking or ignoring what the child is trying to say may lead to low self-esteem in kids. Attend to their problems, no matter how petty it seems.

Stand for Them!

Teach the child that it’s okay to fail rather than punishing him for little failures in life. Children always look up to parents for support and encouragement. So it is important to stand for them throughout life.

Love Unconditionally!

All that kids want is love, no matter how old they are. In fact, an adult needs more love and affection than a kid from parents.

Parenting is creating examples and having faith in your kids that they’ll become the person you want to be! 🙂
