Parenting Guidance…

Parenting guidance is one of the most important in the part of family. The kids will learn what they live. If we disrespect your kids, they will disrespect us and others. One of the common way we as a parents disrespect our children is by letting them get away with being disrespectful to us.

Example; you say to your 5 years old son ‘ it time to go to your bed, hurry off now’ and his response is “NO” you only have to do is to laugh and say ‘ how cute’ you disrespect him, in other words, you didn’t care about this need for guidance. Another example is, if we walk into someone’s house and smoked after they have expressed their desire for not smoking in their house, I would be showing disrespect for the needs of the home owner. Children need guidance, but unless our guidance stems from love, it will come off as nothing but orders. “I am your parents and you are a nothing child, do as I say!”

As a parent, we owe it to our kids to guide them into being respectful children. Otherwise, they will grow to be disrespectful to all authority. Guidance takes time and love – lot of time and lot of love. Never, ever give up.

If children know beyond a doubt that they are loved, special and important to their parents and are learning respect for others, they are well on their way to a healthy happy future. But they key is to be persistent and realized this bundle of joy came into this world with a number of great needs that we can meet if we realize the demands of parenting and love them all the way through their growing up stages.
