Parenting is a lifelong commitment where you will need to love, care, protect, nurture and raise your children into model citizens.
Successful parenting will require you to take measures to ensure that your have all the necessary tools, skills and values that they need to grow into successful and well-adjusted adults.
To do this successfully, one essential skill that you need, is to – Provide a Positive Example – one that your children can emulate.
When it comes to parenting, it is very important to set good examples for your children. “Do as I say, not as I do” isn’t very effective because children learn what they live and are ten times more likely to do what you do, than do what you say.
Be a positive role model for your kids through your own actions. Modeling appropriate behaviors to your children is an essential parenting skill and there is no better way to raise happy, healthy, successful and self-confident children than to model these behaviors in your own actions.
Your children are watching you all the time and they’ll learn far more from what they see you do than what they hear you say.
So, Practice What You Preach.
