Better Parenting - Punita Chouhan

“Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.”

Being a parent is tough. Most of us feel like we could do better jobs, but resolving to be more patient rarely works. When children are growing up, positive parenting improves their cognitive, social and problem-solving skills. Positive parenting also affects their responses and helps them grow up to be better humans.

The first step to being a better parent is actually how we treat ourselves, we can only give what we have.  The first and foremost responsibility is mindfulness. Mindfulness means that it brings your conscious attention to our experiences. Awareness allows you to choose your response to what’s happening. We can regulate our emotions by being mindful.

It necessitates considerable parental attention and participation, letting children know you are watching their behaviour, raising the bar in terms of expectations as appropriate, and making clear and fair rules for the children.
