Parents are among the most important people in the lives of young children. From birth, children are learning and rely on mother and father, as well as other caregivers acting in the parenting role, to protect and care for them and to chart a trajectory that promotes their overall well-being. While parents generally are filled with anticipation about their children’s unfolding personalities, many also lack knowledge about how best to provide for them.
The quality of the parent-child relationship plays an important role too.
The more positive the parent-child relationship is, the better the adolescent’s psychological well-being and the lower the rate of delinquency.
Parents don’t just raise children. They are, literally, shaping the future.
There are few powerful skills into five secrets of how to be a good parent.
1. Treat your children as individual beings.
2. Recognize your child as your teacher.
3. Let go of the happiness and success obsession.
4. Heal your fears first.
5. Don’t react — understand and fill the needs instead.
This is a parental wake-up call.
You are literally shaping the future of the planet. How you raise yourself and how you raise your children determines the direction of humanity’s movement. Good parenting starts with becoming conscious of the outdated beliefs you’ve inherited.
When all parents awaken and become conscious, we can move humanity and the planet forward.
