GENTLE PARENTING

Parents have been raising their children this way for centuries –because it simply means parenting with a focus on empathy, connection and mindful enforced discipline.

Just talk & cuddle your kid as the way you would do to a guest. Use the words that are protective of their feelings, words can be hurtful and it means for them alot!  Words shouldn’t be critical to behaviour .Build up the ability to handle feelings to be dealt with before behaviour can be improved!

If u want to raise a strong willed adult empower your strong –willed child; just chill and say

“Honey, When you grow up I want you to be assertive, independent and strong-willed, but while you are a kid, I want you to be passive, pliable and obedient”

Observe when a child plays the role of a parent, instead of playing a child role in the relationship. No matter how they irritates you, as a parent pat them on saying positive words, just spreading around positivity

*    “You make my day”

*    “I love you no matter what”

*    “I’m here if you need me”

*    “You should be proud of yourself”

*    “I’m listening my child”

Meanwhile your child will teach you a lot about how the child is

*    You can find out so much simply by observing them like 

*    What their interests are

*    What they are learning?

*    What’s their understanding about surroundings?

*    Their current stage of development and feelings, intense attachment with parents.

Remember when a child is punished for their honesty, they begin to lie !

1. A kid who is LOVED will become LOVING

AT LAST BUT NOT LEAST !

As a parent i am strongly suggesting who reading this to watch a movie “ABIYUM -NAANUM” movie cast a popular heroine Trisha and Character artist  prakashraj which depicts the every stage of a growing child. The movie surely makes a binding effect with your life and emotions we hold over our child and makes you to travel along way with that peculiar dad cringe over his daughter

“A father gets to meet the father of a preschooler at a playground and recounts his own relationship with his daughter over the years, including his difficulties accepting her marriage.” A screenplay  well about father-daughter relationship. With a beautiful screenplay, the story tells about the father’s love. The cast’s acting was so natural and casual. I really enjoyed the film. Put bluntly, parents with daughters must watch this film!”
