  • When it comes to parenting, consistency plays an important role. You need to talk to your child and teach them the facts about life. As an adult you also have to act accordingly. Once you say something, you need to stick to it . You need to show them that what you said is true.
  • When you make rules, you need to follow them yourself. Show your child that the rules have to be followed. Remember, parents are idols for their child.

  • You need to learn how to control yourself and stop yourself from breaking your own rules. Sometimes you need to be tough, too and continue to say “no” no matter how much your child cries.
  • There may be times when you will have to change the rules. When this happens explain to your child  why you had to do it. You can tell them that you changed the rules just because of the changing conditions.
