Kids are not born with a guide on how to be educated. Every child is different and there is also no right way for all children to be educated. There are some best practices for raising kids, however. Here are 13 practical tips for all parents that are good pieces of child-rearing advice.
Parents have to be the motivator and cheerleaders for their children in life. If that’s not what their parents are doing with them, then who will?
The influence of the confidence of a parent in the abilities of their child to accomplish will make the child feel that they can do just about anything. When they have loving parents who trust in their ability, this empowers the child to work harder and to give their best.
If parents trust their children, they also encourage their children to believe in themselves. Children realize that when they have parents who believe in their talents, they are competent human beings who can accomplish their objectives.
The trust in themselves starts with someone first believing in them. It should be a parent who, from a very young age, demonstrates trust in their child and their skills.
Children can be very tough on each other. They pick their look, their ability to play sports, and more from each other. The words that children say to each other can be very detrimental and defeating.
However, having a parent who believes in them and their abilities can counteract the negativity from their peers.
Your son may be getting ready for field day at school, for instance, and he feels down because another child in class told him that at the 100-meter dash he’s going to lose. You know your child has been training for weeks and has previously beaten all of the children in his class.
All it takes to inspire your child is a reminder of those past wins and a pep talk about how hard work pays off. You’re asking your son that he can succeed, and you trust in his talents. His stance shifts from one of defeat to one full of inspiration, enthusiasm, and positivity. Now he’s excited for tomorrow to run the race and do his best because you believed in him.
Let your child have the potential of getting dirty. They activate all five of their senses while children play in the dirt, mud, and nature. Don’t miss the chances to thrive when they play in nature with their imagination.
Nature’s filthy, but that’s all right. In life, they have plenty of time to be sterile and safe. For the sake of their creation, they need to get messy.
For starters, when they’re playing outside in a sandbox with mud caked all over their arms and face, with toys scattered all over, it seems like a big mess for you. With the sand and mud, they might be making an imaginary meal masterpiece for that boy.
The child uses their imagination, their senses are involved, and they complete a project that is their own invention. Don’t take these opportunities from them to thrive and develop, simply because you want them to stay clean. Enable them to survive by getting into the mud, dirt, and nature.
3. Raising children is not a race
For your kids, do what’s right. Don’t do stuff just because it is done by other parents. An old saying goes, “Keep your eyes on your own paper.” With parenting, the same goes. Keep your eyes on a kid of your own. Do what your child is right and don’t think about what others are doing.
For milestones, the same mantra goes. At 9 months of age, some children walk, while others start walking at 15 months. It doesn’t mean that, as an adult, one can run the Boston Marathon and the other child won’t.
It’s all right when kids at various ages hit their milestones. Since they were not developed as machines, every child is different. Listen to experts, not just other parents, if you are worried about your child reaching their milestones in a timely manner. You will discover that there is a significant amount of flexibility in reaching a milestone.
You have a mate, for example, whose 24-month-old toddler uses complete sentences and has a vocabulary of more than 100 words. Your 24-month-old has just 40 words in his vocabulary. You start to worry like something might be wrong with your child or that they’re not smart.
If you understand, however, that the norm for language acquisition for a 24-month-old is that 40-50 words should be spoken, you may have some peace of mind. In a number of places, you can have friends with kids who succeed. Others will have children who at a young age are completely bilingual, and others will have children who will be able to read by the age of three or four.
These babies are not the norm. Some people are blessed with children who are very gifted. The standard is blessed by most of us, which is why it’s called “normal.”
4. Protection first:
In the first three years of your child’s life, your goal is to keep them alive. This was said to me by my mother once, and I realized it was true.
I know that keeping my kids alive is first and foremost, having made it through the first three years with three separate children. This suggests that the most important aspect in their treatment is to keep them safe throughout those early years.
