Parenting Concepts: Guides To Great Parenting

Parenting skills are something that new parents can only learn on the fly. Children do not come with a set of directions. The only thing a parent can do is to make a commitment to invest the time, effort, and dedication necessary to raise their children to be honest, responsible people.

It would be impossible to draw up a list of list of hard and fast rules and methods for parenting. This is because not all family situations are alike, and not all children respond to parenting methods in the same way. Does that make ‘learning’ about parenting useless?

Absolutely not! While parenting methods may have differing effects, and every situation calls for a parent to use there best judgment, there are things that should remain constant. These basic concepts will help guide parents in their constant effort to be better parents.

Unconditional Love – Unconditional love is one of the concepts that should permeate every action and every interaction between parent and child. It is also one of the concepts that is the most misunderstood. How a parent expresses unconditional love to their child may very well determine how the child views themselves, and their worth.  Many children grow up with a low self-esteem this is a result of many different factors. They may feel that the love they were shown depended on their accomplishments, or, they may feel unwanted, or unloved.

All parents should, be certain to show their children how important they are, no matter what, so that they can grow-up loving others in the same way. This unconditional love and is very important in building a sense of self worth.

Responsibility – Children should grow up with a sense of responsibility for their actions, and the things around them. Many children grow up to be irresponsible parents, friends, and family, not caring or not knowing how to care, or how accept their own responsibilities.

Children don’t learn responsibility too often find themselves blaming other people for things they have the power to change or control. Alternately, lack of responsibility training could cause children to blame themselves for things that they have no control over. This is an opposite, but equally undesirable problem.  Responsible children care for and properly manage their time and resources (for example toys, and clothing).

Respect – Children should be taught respect. When they learn respect they learn that there are people that they should answer to, and that there is organization within every social unit. Children will learn that no matter whom the person they are talking to, that person has worth.

Respect will help make relationships grow smoothly; as respect is one of the foundations of any good relationship. Children who learn to give respect will expect respect in return, and will adjust better to other people than those who don’t.

As a parent one helpful illustration might be to think of raising children as being like flying a kite – you let the kite fly into to the wind, giving slack as the kite flies higher, and reining it in if overwhelmed by the wind. But, like the kite, if properly flown your children could accomplish greater heights of personal development with the help of your support and parenting.
