You need to fix your being a parent skills and turn around your child's bad behavior as soon as possible. Further delay and these actions will turn into bad habits and eventually a lifetime of bad
choices. Use the advice in this article to learn how to best raise your children.
A tip that goes unheeded by far too many parents is the suggestion that they remember to take time for themselves. Setting aside some personal time to decompress and maintain hobbies and interests
will help moms and dads stay energized and engaged in the lives of their children. This will lead to a happier, more fulfilled family.
Sometimes, unpleasant disciplinary actions must be handed down. "First, feelings; then discipline," is a highly effective approach that begins with a positive statement that acknowledges the child's
feelings (right or wrong) and then explains your reason for setting the disciplinary consequences. This can help reduce the levels of resentment following the action.
Do you want your child to value reading? Show them that you value it yourself by providing a number of age-appropriate books, and incorporate reading into your daily routine whenever possible. Read
your child a bedtime story at night, and let them see you reading a favorite book just for fun.
If you have an adult child who is going to be deployed, it is very important that you explain what the military is all about to your younger children. They are going to want to know where their
sibling is going and it is better that you are completely honest with them, in case tragedy should occur.
Here's a cool tip for parents of twin babies: Paint your baby twins' toenails to help tell them apart. As infants, even fraternal twins can look so alike that it can be impossible to know who is who,
especially when you are sleep deprived. Assign a color of nail polish to each child and paint just one toenail of each to keep straight who is who!
If you're in a relationship, whether it's marriage or just dating, make sure it's a healthy one. If the relationship is failing, you need to cut your losses and try and end it civilly. Children can
cope with a friendly divorce better than they can if you drag out a failed marriage and are at each other's throats.
