When it comes to raising children, there are many trials and tribulations that must be suffered through and overcome. And, we parents are happy to do it. After all, we love our children more than literally anything in this world, nay, the universe. Therefore, we take all of the stress and say, with a smile on our faces, “that all you go?” However, it can be a struggle to be that superhero parent we all want to be, and that our children all think we are, so it can be tremendously helpful to have some advice on how to go above and beyond when it comes to parenting. Here are a few tips.
First and foremost, be available. We all know that kids go to school and parents go to work and that, more importantly, these things don’t always sync up. Therefore, you may not be present as often as you might like, and your child may be feeling the same way. However, there are ways to combat this. First of all, considering getting a cell phone via AT&T to help you stay connected. However, you could also try handwritten notes to say what you need to say in a more personal way.
However, we can’t be with our children all the time, and even if we could, it would ultimately be bad for develop by way of separation anxiety, for example. So, it can be much more important to be fully present when you are together. Taking an active interest in your child’s school experience, for instance, will mean a lot to them. Encouraging them and supporting them is the secret key to successful parenting. Especially in the era of endless entertainment media, too many parents simply don’t interact with their children often enough or fully enough.
