How to be a friend of your child?If you want your child to be happy and perfect besides sharing his success and failure stories, make sure that you are more of a friend than just a parent. This means that you should be the first person to discuss a problem and share joy for your child and the child must not respect you because he fears you but because he admires your presence in his life. Spend quality time with your child so that he can talk freely with you.

Before you can be a good friend of your children, you need to understand some things very clearly. Never ever crack a joke on your child’s success or failure. If he has made a mistake, accept that as a human mistake and let your child know that you still love him. Make him understand the difference between the right and the wrong so that he makes less mistakes and learn from the mistakes to be a better personality, even better than you.

Do not let your child down by making promises you cannot keep or expecting too much from him. Give him a space to grow – to grow as a child, as a member of the society, and to grow as a good human being. Never appreciate his wrong deeds just to make him happy and guide him with ethics.

If you can follow these tips, your child will admire the company of the most trustworthy friend in his life – you! This was all about raising your child in the best possible manner.
