Positive Behavior Tips For Children-Encouraging Good Behaviour

Posted by Sara | Raising Your Child | Friday 24 February 2012 3:20 am

The role of fathers and mothers is not just limited to bringing a life to this world, but to ensure at all times that the child is nurtured with good behavior, right skills, and everything that can make him or her good and responsible member of the society in the future.

Positive Behavior Tips For Children-Encouraging Good Behaviour

If you want to make your child a good citizen and human being, you will have to play a big role in nurturing his or her emotions, thoughts, behavior, and skills. Moreover, it would be easier for you to start teaching good lessons of life to the child at an early age before unhealthy choices turn into lifelong bad habits. It is important for you to note that merely communicating something to your children does not necessarily mean that they would follow them just as you want them to. As a parent, you need to make sure that you are choosing healthy and positive behavior too before they could be expected to follow your advice.

Here are some tips for parents to follow:

It is very important for you to pay complete attention to the kinds of food purchased by you. You should try limiting junk food and fried food and include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Moreover, you should include a variety of healthy foods in the daily diet and motivate your child to develop healthy food habits. In addition to that, you should encourage your kid to drink lots of milk or water instead of opting for regular-calorie soft drinks, sports drinks, energy drinks, fruit juice, and sugar-sweetened fruit drinks, sweetened or flavored milk, sweetened iced tea.

In today’s times, the quality of media has deteriorated to a significant extent and you should surely not bring your child much close to it. For this, you can limit the amount of time your kids spend in front of the television or using computers or even video games. Moreover, you should not allow them watch or follow aggression-filled games or television shows that highlight that aggression is the best policy or good looks are all what matter in this world or elders are to be shunned. Teach good things to your child and this would surely reflect in his or her behavior for the entire lifetime.

Every child is different and you need to respect this uniqueness. All human beings have some positives as well as negatives and your child is no exception. You should accept him or her for what he or she is rather than forcing yourself on the children. However, this does not mean that you should stop offering advice but this advice could always be conveyed in a pleasant and calm manner that would actually be appreciated by children. Remember, no one wants to hear loud noises or abuses and your children is no exception. You and others can expect respect and love from him or her only when he or she is provided with the same.

If you have made a promise to your child, fulfill it at the earliest and never scold him or her in front of others. Just because your child failed to come first in the class does not mean that you can confront him or her. If every parent in this world starts following this viewpoint and only child comes first in a class, imagine the plight of the other children in the class. Stop this bad habit and encourage him or her to work hard. Marks do not make a good human being, but respect and love of parents do.

Follow these basic tips on raising your child and you will find a great difference in the way your child treats you and others. This will be the biggest test of you and the children and learning from mistakes would make things better.

Upbringing a child starts at HomeRaising your child can be the most beautiful thing for you. But if you are a first-time parent, you need to be cautious of certain things so that there are no hurdles in upbringing the child.

Before we read any further, it is important for us to know that upbringing a child starts at home as parents are the first teachers of the child and have significant influence over growth and development of children.

From Healthandsuppliments.com:

Upbringing a child starts at home and you really need to have a lot of patience and information for ensuring success of your upbringing plans. The first step in this process is to talk to your baby. Even though the child may not be able to express his thoughts or answer your questions, he or she will know that you are some one special. In addition to that, try to add words in your talks whenever your child makes sounds. You can even read and sing to your baby. It is interesting to note here that children who listen to music in their early childhood days are known to develop a love for mathematics and music.

Furthermore, never leave your child away from you for long. Try to spend as much of quality time as possible by cuddling and holding him or her. This will bring a sense of care and security, something only your young child can feel. If you want to play with your baby, make sure that he is alert and relaxed and not feeling sleepy else he or she may not be able to pay attention and you may be left disappointed thinking that the activity is not liked.

By following these tips, you can make things simple and fun for you as well as the child.

How to be a friend of your child?

Posted by Sara | Raising Your Child | Friday 11 December 2009 5:43 am

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.

Stubbornness – Do not allow it to develop in your child

Posted by Sara | Raising Your Child | Friday 27 November 2009 4:13 am

Stubbornness - Do not allow it to develop in your childEvery parent loves to fulfill all wishes of his or her child but what they forget while doing their best is that they are encouraging stubbornness in the child without even realizing it. And when the child develops the habit, he or she is blamed of being stubborn. But what is left out is the fact that the child was never wrong as he or she did not have the common sense to differentiate between right and wrong but the adult parents do had that knowledge and failed to differentiate.

I know that it is really hard for a parent to refuse demands of his or her children but that does not mean that all demands of the children, even if they are wrong or unnecessary, are to be fulfilled. Being a parent, you have to be strong, calm, and understanding to tell your child that this demand is wrong and will not be fulfilled. The reason of refusal has to be communicated in a calm and understanding manner. This will not only eliminate wrong demands from your child’s side but will also help him or her grow as a mature person.

Remember, it is not wrong to satisfy your child’s right demands but it is wrong to satisfy wrong demands of your child. Raising your child is a virtue that comes with patience and understanding.

Demanding Child Behavior – How to handle?

Posted by Sara | Raising Your Child | Monday 16 November 2009 6:20 am

Demanding Child Behavior – How to handle?If you, as a parent, are fulfilling your child’s “unreasonable” demands and hoping that they will change with the passing time, you need to think twice. This is because you are not helping yourself and your child by granting approval when the words should have been very straight and clear. The word “no” should not be missing from a parent’s dictionary when it comes to demands of the child. This is because the young minds are not aware of the complications surrounding a demand and take reckless decisions. As mature adults, it is the responsibility of the parents to show the right direction to the child. Though this may upset the child for a small time, the benefits are great in the short and the long run. Moreover, your child will love you for the great piece of advice to him or her in a calm voice when he or she will see the peers struggling and blaming their parents for ruining their life when a no could have done the trick.

The best way: If you want to raise your child with the highest morals and ethics, do remember to teach him or her task of differentiation between the good and the bad. Aggressiveness is something that must be curbed at an early stage else that may lead to frequent fights, superiority or inferiority complex, and depression at a later stage. Never tell the right thing to your child with a harsh tone, be calm and explain the situation and the best way out to your child so that he or she may know why he or she should be doing an act in the way you want the child to follow.

Never compare your child with others. Remember, each child is different and must be treated differently. Do take out some quality time to spend with your family, especially your children so that they can be free to have a word with you and their future wrongdoings may be corrected to right acts with your able guidance.

Follow these small tips and raising your child will never be a cause of concern for you again.

Raising Your Child – It is all about care and respect

Posted by Sara | Raising Your Child | Saturday 14 November 2009 4:56 am

Raising Your Child - It is all about care and respectYou may feel surprised to see the word ‘respect’ in context to your children but the truth is that unless you respect your children and elders before your children, you cannot expect them to do the same for you and others. Remember, a child gets the first lessons from his or her own family and if the lessons are wrong or misleading, he or she is bound to learn the wrong lessons and he or she cannot be blamed for these wrong learning.

One of the biggest mistakes most parents do is ignoring the care part from parenthood. The young minds are soft and need to be handled with very high standards of care and patience. While a right advice communicated to the child in harsh words may sound unpleasing or bad to him, an advice with calm and composed words and minds can easily do the trick.

If you can observe a high sense of care and respect your child in his or her childhood or teenage years, you can be sure of the same treatment in your later years.

Never abuse your child, even if he or she is wrong. Talk to them in a calm voice and try to find out what was the reason behind their acts. Allow your children to speak their mind so that they feel comfortable sharing their joys, fears, and everything with you. If your child is trying to seek some attention or advice from you, do not neglect the attention or advice he is seeking. Do not force a decision; communicate it in the best manner with clear words so that the essence of your advice is grabbed just like what you want.

Remember, raising your child is all about care and respect!

Raising Your Child – How to do?

Posted by Sara | Raising Your Child | Wednesday 28 October 2009 7:39 am

Raising Your Child – How to do?Raising your child can be one of the biggest issues before your personal and work life, if things start going awkward. This is because much of your time gets reserved for your children, whether you accept it or not. In addition to that, your personal and work life is bound to take a beating if your child is showing tantrums or suffering from other behavioral problems.

Let us find out how you can ensure a hassle-free life besides grooming your child in the best possible manner.

The first thing that you probably need to learn and remember is that young minds are very much influenced by your own behavior. If you have been spoon-feeding them or succumbing to their demands too often, your child is bound to be dependent and not willing and strong enough to make a decision. In addition to that, he or she will make it a habit to get even the “unreasonable” demands approved from you.

The second thing is grooming your child with ethics. This is the most difficult things as you may not have enough time and bad things are easy for children to adopt than good things. However, do make every effort to ensure that your child receives personal attention and comfortable enough to share his/her joy, sorrow, doubts, and errors. But if you scold him without understanding the reason of such things, your child will hide things from you, sooner or later. Scolding a child was never the answer; do not consider your child as an exception. Like you and every one, he or she can make mistakes due to lack of society knowledge and failure to understand difference between the right and the wrong.

Never pamper your child but never be far behind to appreciate when he or she does something good. Be reasonable with your expectations and never force something on the child. These things would surely help your child develop completely as a nice human being, whom you can trust and be proud of.
