Some Unwritten Rules of Being a Parent

  • First of all, being tough with your kids is very important. It does not mean caning your kids every time they do something wrong. However, you need to show your disapproval when they do something wrong and never support anything wrong. Punishing them or grounding them is helpful when you do it in a manner that helps your kids.
  • As a parent, it is very necessary to know the kind of friends your kids have and what they do when they get together. Do not forget to have the contact details of your kids’ friends and their family members. This could help you a lot in an emergency.
  • Similarly, always stay in touch with all the teachers of your kids. Teachers stay with kids all the time and they can tell you better about your kids. Also, never criticize your kids’ teachers anywhere in front of your kids and never blame anything on teachers. If your kid is facing any issue with the teacher, talk it out politely in absence of your kids.
  • Parents complain about their kids stuck to the digital devices all the time and how finicky their kids are in eating food. These are the same parents who keep their smartphones in their hands even while eating their meals. Well, kids do not learn anything from out of their home. Whatever they see their parents doing, they learn it quickly. To help your kids read a book instead of operating digital devices, you need to show it to them instead of commanding.
