There are several actions you can do to fulfill yourself as a parent. Be compassionate and kind to your children, and choose your words carefully. Children absorb everything you say at an early. Find something to praise as often as you can-notice your kids behaving well and doing good things, and praise them for it. Be flexible and communicate with your children. Enforce your discipline in a consistent and calm manner. Show them unconditional love, and that you have failures and faults too.
- Self esteem starts at a very early age, as young as baby hood, so it’s important to make them feel valued.
- If you had a boss who did nothing but criticize, you probably wouldn’t like never being paid a compliment.
- Make sure to catch their good behavior and praise them for it instead of only seeing the negative.
“Praising accomplishments, however small, will make them feel proud; letting kids do things independently will make them feel capable and strong.”
