Positive Parenting Tips

by Sandy Klocinski

  • 1. Give your children quantity and quality time. When you spend time with your kids, try to engage them in meaningful conversations. Try to build fun and healthy communications and relationships while the kids are young.

  • 2. Encourage your child to think for him/herself. Restrain yourself from being the chief problem solver of their life even if they ask you to be that for them. If you want them to make good choices when you are not around, you need to encourage them to try to problem solve when you are around.

  • 3. Family Time – Try having at least one meal together, preferably dinner. This is a perfect time for the whole family to get involved with each other. Don’t forget to TURN OFF the TV!

  • 4. Do not put the Diaper Cream next to the toothpaste, lest you get confused late at night, don’t ask me how I know.

  • 5. Provide unconditional acceptance. Say: “I love you but I am unhappy with your behavior.”

  • 6. Don't blame yourself for ineffective parenting. Blaming yourself or others is neither a positive nor a constructive emotion. Blame solves nothing.

  • 7. The sole purpose of those short shorts your daughter wears with words across the behind is to make people look there. Rest assured, they look. Monitor how your child dresses.

  • 8. Choosing a babysitter should not be taken lightly. Parents should take special care in selecting a babysitter for their children. Once you have established a person to care for your children in your absence, it is vital that the babysitter understands exactly what you expect.

  • 9. Command Respect, Don’t Demand It. One foundations of good relationships with other people is mutual respect. A parent should be commanding the respect of your children, through your actions and words, not demanding that they respect you.

  • 10. Identify your parenting style by taking a parenting styles quiz. There are no right or wrong answers but you will find out how your parenting style affects your child's behavior

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
