Ten Weeks Old

Parenting is not a science. There are no perfect parents and nobody can tell you the exact way to parent your children.

It’s Inevitable

You will make mistakes, but that doesn’t mean you’re a bad parent. Be open to learning from your mistakes. When something goes wrong, don’t get defensive or angry with yourself or your kids.

Instead, take a step back and think about why it happened and what you can do differently next time.

You might be surprised at how much an honest conversation with your child about their feelings can help clear the air and lessen any potential tension between the two of you.

Discipline In a Positive Way

When it comes to discipline, a positive response is always the best. There are many ways to maintain discipline in a positive way.

  • Set consistent expectations and boundaries
  • Use time outs instead of physical punishment
  • Follow through with consequences, even if they’re difficult
  • Take away privileges when necessary
  • Give consequences that are appropriate to the age and circumstance
  • Work out disagreements together as a family
