Recalling Some Sweet Memories For Top 10 Parenting Tips :)

by Nighat
(Lahore Pakistan)

I have two daughters both in their late teens and whenever I see their mature gestures and profound sweetness and politeness I look back, wondering what I had done to deserve such nice children. I think my top ten tips played a big role and I'd like to share them with you:

  • 1) Invent games. When I was teaching my elder daughter her ABCs, I tried to make it fun, while I drove her to daycare (I was a working lady). I would strap her to the front seat and ask her to read the number plate of the car ahead of us. She earned a sweet for every right answer. Such innovative games make learning fun!

  • 2) Listen to fairy tales from your children (those you have already told them of course). This reverse act removes monotony from your bedtime routine and also the child feels grown up and creative. I used to give my daughters picture books and asked them to tell me the stories. Trust me the stories they made up were really creative!

  • 3) Only harmless cartoons!! I used to critically analyze the cartoons before I let my children watch them because some cartoons cause children to learn dirty language and may also lead to violence.

  • 4) Equality between children. Treat each of your child in the same manner and do not quote examples of one child to the other, it only gives rise to a complex.

  • 5) Do not spank your children. It will only teach them violence!

  • 6) My younger daughter did not eat her meals easily so I used make each bite an imaginary fictional person to make food time fun. Do try it, it really works!!

  • 7) Be role models for your children because children only portray their parents no matter what.

  • 8) Do not snap at your children when they want to cuddle, even though it may get irritating, because it will hurt the child's feelings.

  • 9) Encourage activities that involves the brain and the hand, teaching origami and painting for example.

  • 10) And most importantly there should be a family time in your busy schedule!! Family time gives rise to happy and mentally peaceful children. It keeps the parents in touch with the lives of their children and lets the parents share some words of wisdom. Even today when my elder daughter is 18, she does not skip family time, she loves it, the playful atmosphere and discussions.
