You are not alone in thinking that parenting is a tough job and you may find that you are easily overwhelmed by the challenges you face every day. If a happy home and family is important to you, then you will find a way to face those challenges. Try some of the practical suggestions below. Good parenting is one of the best gifts that you can give your child to prepare them for their life ahead. If you notice that your toddlers are throwing a temper tantrum when they can’t get the toy that they want, (which is extremely normal) it is a perfect time to teach them how to share and wait for their turn. If your toddler is being especially stubborn or willfully disobeying, then they should be placed in a time-out area. Following routines allow everyone to know what they can expect, such as setting aside time for homework, meals, and bed time. Your child will be well-behaved if they have consistent routines in their life. Therefore, you should ensure you follow through on them.
Children are naturally independent. Offering tasks that they can complete during housekeeping time can give them a real confidence boost. For example, if you are washing dishes, allow your child to dry them. When you’re getting ready to fold your laundry, let the child have some socks to arrange. Helping out around the house will help them to feel independent and gain self-esteem.
