10 tips for raising children

Do you feel that parenting is an impossible task? Do you always try to do your best, but don't always feel that your efforts are bearing fruit? Don't worry, this is normal! However, here are a few tips to help you guide your baby through his development.

  • First of all, learn to distinguish between authority and authoritarianism. Only impose things if you have a good reason to do so, not just because you've decided to do so and want to prove your ability to get your children to obey you.
  • Take time to explain things to your child so that they clearly understand why you expect this or that behavior from them.
  • It is very difficult for children to obey their parents if they don't understand what their parents are asking of them.
  • Always try to be as positive as possible, avoiding negative language, harsh criticism, and of course any form of violence, whether verbal or physical.
  • It is always better to accompany the child towards the right decisions than to force them.
  • Do not do things for your child.
  • If you want your child to be independent and fulfilled, accompany them in the process instead of doing everything yourself.
  • Learn to distinguish between leniency and positive parenting.
  • Many parents who practice what is called positive education are considered to be too permissive.
  • Take responsibility for your educational choices and don't be afraid of how others will look at you.
  • In the long run, they will be forced to see that your educational practices are more than productive!
  • And last but not least, let go and stop waiting for everything to be perfect!
  • No matter what, you're doing what you can, which is already a lot, and letting your perfectionism speak for itself won't bring anything positive, quite the contrary.
  • Remember that the very fact that you are always questioning yourself shows that you are an exceptional, caring, and loving parent.
