One of the most tedious stages of life is undoubtedly the stage of parenting, where the couples, now parents, have to raise their child into a responsible, smart, and good human being. It’s not the easiest task in hand I agree, but with some smart skills and techniques, it’s not tough either. Smart parenting, to be precise, is just the technique of setting your standards right, in order to make your child grow into the personality you wish for with a great subconscious mind power.
The key to success in smart parenting is not some rocket science. Following are some simple steps to be followed, which will make the parents achieve the requisite skills for smart parenting, and enhance a successful parenthood:-
- Build the Child’s Self Esteem –
The very base of smart parenting comes in from building a child’s personality, especially self-esteem. While none would love to coddle the child to extremes, the parents should make sure to teach their child to stand up for what is right and should be able to use subconscious mind power, even if it makes others unhappy. Cocooning them into being bullied is not a smart option either.
- Talk to them –
Another way of achieving success in parenthood is to talk to your children. It doesn’t reduce your stature in any way, but enhances the outlook of the child, besides giving him/her a head start on the language skills. Doesn’t it serve better?
- Read out to them –
Nothing serves better in achieving parenthood than making your child an able reader. Read out the stories; include the emotions, while reading them out. This will not only give the child a head start on reading skills but also develop the subconscious mind power. Adding more knowledge in the right sense can never harm a child in any way.
- Be a Friend first, rather than a Parent –
While there is no doubt that a parenting couple would love to see their child a personality worth following, they miss the crucial juncture that is necessary, that of being a friend first. For smart parenting, the parents should be friends first, which will enable the child to open up, share the deepest secrets, including the joys and sorrows, helping the child to know and grow with the coming years.
- Foster your Child’s Creativity –
In the present scenario, where many countries lament the lack of innovation and creativity, it is quite essential that the parents foster an innate sense of creativity in the child and teach them how to utilize their subconscious mind power. They should enable the child to just not follow the herd, and also think out of the box solutions to all the problems plaguing the current world. Trust me; you’ll be proud of your decision later!
- Allow them to take risks and fail –
One of the biggest reasons why children find it odd to have a conversation with parents is the simple fact that a parent never teaches the child to take risks, and possibly fail. It is not necessary that we succeed every time we take risks, but the child should be encouraged to take the risks, because as they say, no pain, no gain. The child would learn to respect his/her hard work and work for a better tomorrow.
To sum it up, even if the parenting couples follow the above steps, they will have enriched themselves, if not mastered, with the skills to smart parenting. To the parents out there, it’s time to pull up your socks and make yourself the parents the world would love to emulate.
