Improving Your Capacity as a Parent

Improving Your Capacity as a Parent

That some methods of raising children are more successful than others is not exactly news to anyone. Having a happy and healthy child is a goal shared by all parents, but each parent’s approach to this objective may vary depending on their own personal goals and life circumstances.

Affection and Love

Exhibiting affection for one’s child is the single most important skill for raising happy, healthy children. This includes never judging someone or making them feel unloved. Time spent one-on-one with a child is also emphasized.

Controlling One’s Actions

Parents who practice positive discipline encourage their children and make them feel connected, capable, and a part of the family by using positive reinforcement and delivering outcomes (not a punishment) in a loving and firm manner.

Protection

You do your part to make sure your kid is safe. Some examples of this are enforcing limits and keeping tabs on their routine and social circle. It’s also about doing things like babyproofing your house, making kids wear helmets when riding bikes, teaching them safe street crossing strategies, and discussing sexual consent. It takes effort, time, the correct resources, and a lot of patience to figure out what abilities you have and what ones could use some fine-tuning.
