Use Your Natural Parenting Techniques

Parenting is not something that you can learn by rote or repeated training. Of course, one can learn so many things about parenting through reading , attending seminars and workshops but, natural parenting techniques are the ones that you already subconsciously have. You don’t need to learn them. You might need to learn how to use what you already have. In this article, we give you some useful tips on how to use your natural parenting techniques .Becoming a parent is something that usually comes naturally. But not parenting. A good parenting coach or guide is one that works with you to enhance what you already have.. You need to learn how to use and improve on these natural parenting techniques. Here’s how…..

  • Give your child some chores based on his/her likes and dislikes like throwing the garbage or taking out the newspapers or even to help you do the laundry or dishes. In this way, you would give your child some responsibilities. He/she feels needed and will live up to your expectations as he/she wants to make you proud.
  • Be role model for your child. Children take their parents as role models. If you want your child to learn something, do it yourself so he/she sees you doing it and starts copying you. Because, in children’s opinion, whatever parents do must be right.
  • Speak wisely when discussing home-work or chores.. You need to choose the right words so that they understand that it is a privilege to be entrusted to do something to contribute to the wellbeing of the family no matter how “humble” the task is. . Don’t make those tasks obligations. .
  • Never compare your child with others. You can say: This child is so kind and well mannered, don’t you agree?. Never say “Why can’t you be like them?”
  • Don’t put your children at a disadvantage by talking to them in “baby talk”. Even before they begin to form words clearly, speak to them in full, grammatically correct sentences and you will be rewarded as they grow naturally speaking well.
  • Be excellent examples of courtesy and expect your children to emulate you. It works!
  • ” Don’t do as I do, do as I say” Never works.

Those are the simple tips on parenting techniques. You just need to use what you already have and enjoy your children.

  1. Arguably the most important thing you can do however in my opinion is what you mention in your second bullet. Being a role model for your kid is ultimately the single biggest impact you can have on your child’s live. The world is littered with unhappy and dysfunctional kids coming from homes where moms and dads said one thing and did another. If you expect your child to respect or even pay attention to any of the other techniques you may choose to apply, then make sure they feel safe in the knowledge that you are a person of integrity and honour.
