You cannot help but wonder sometimes if you are being a good parent to your children. Sometimes you compare your parenting style with other people that you know but you should not do this. It is common that you may get some tips from other parents but not to the point that you will be imitating what they do. You should have your own personal style in letting your kids grow up to be people that will make good differences in the world later on.
Parents need to show children that they are loved but most parents are too caught up with their jobs and the other things that they have to do that they just buy material things for their children all the time to compensate for their lack of time. The smallest things that may preoccupy you like the heat resistant gloves that you need in your kitchen should not distract you from thinking of ways to show your children how much they are loved. If you do not have any idea about what to do, here are some tips:
No matter how busy you are with work and your other tasks, you have to schedule a date wherein it will be just you and your partner and your children. It will help you bond with them more since you are going to talk to each other. At the same time, you will learn more about each child’s personality that will help you in dealing with their problems in the future.
What is the best thing that you can tell your children? They will always love it if you would tell them that you love them. When you do this often, you know that they will be comfortable in telling you that they love you too. When your children tell you that they love you, it can make your heart soar. It will make you feel that you are truly being a good parent.
Your children are not perfect and there will be times when they would not do what is expected of them. They might get a failing mark at a certain exam or there may be a quiz that they were not able to answer at all. Let your children know that you are there and that they can always try again.
Being too affectionate with your children might make them uncomfortable especially if they are not fond of hugging or if they do not want to be too close to you. Accept this and respect your children’s privacy. There are still a lot of others ways that you can show your kids that they are loved anyway.
