Never Rush Them Into Growing Up

Let the kids not lose their innocence, as it is very important that a child remains a child. Remember that once they do become adults, you cannot reverse things back.


Give True Love

Generally, people assume that fulfilling the child's demands is a way to show and make them realise that they as parents love the kid. This is totally wrong and should be stopped right away. Instead, give genuine love to your child.


Learn While You Teach

Make life fun by enjoying the things that you used to do in your life while teaching your kid. It can be anything under the sun, be it crawling like your little angel or grooving on to a favourite song. Let the child within you not die.


Recognise The Privilege

Understand the fact that the child is in this world because of you, but you cannot tame them in everything they do. All you need to do is be a support when they really need you and just be around to make sure they're learning the right things.


Let Them Be

Never try to mould the child's future with your unfulfilled dreams. Let them do anything that they wish to and let them decide on their own. But, do make sure the kids come to you for your opinion and ideas as well.


Actions Do Matter

Teach your child about the actions, they do really matter, as this is one of the most important principles of life to be learnt. So as a parent, make sure you do not have an ugly spat or use foul language, as kids are good gaspers.
