Win the Parenting Game
Parenting is a tough job and your kids will test your patience, the rules, and the boundaries you set. You have to learn to be all you can be as a parent. It is not an easy to be a parent, but with six life lessons, you can be all you can be as a parent and win the parenting game.
Parenting is a full-time job. You have to be aware of everything your child is doing. To be a proactive parent and all you can be, you need to be protective and persistent. Kids don't like their parents to be watchful of their every move, but it is your job to keep them safe.
Kids are on the go eighty percent of the day. It can be difficult to keep up with an active child. To be an active parent and all you can be, you need to be attentive and accessible. Kids like to stay busy and on the go and it is your job to keep up.
Some days it will be difficult to reason with your child. Most kids want to be right and never wrong. A parent’s job is to be reasonable when a child is difficult. There will be days when you have to referee and days when you have to regulate. Be prepared to do both when your child gets in trouble.
When is the last time you ask your child how their day was? Let's face it, most of the time parents are too busy to engage their child in a conversation. Of course, life does not always revolve around your child, but you still have to listen to and communicate with your child. Your job as a parent is to be encouraging and enthusiastic regardless of the situation.
Parenting is a never-ending job. From the time your child is born to the time you die, you never stop being a full-time parent. There are two things never-ending parents do. A never-ending parent nourishes and nurtures their child.
It takes a team to raise a child. Whether it is your partner, a teacher, or a friend, it takes teamwork. Raising a child from an infant into an adult is stressful and at times heartbreaking. If you are a single parent, then you need all the help you can get. If you are part of a two-parent home or blended family, you still need all the help you can get. It is going to take togetherness and truthfulness for team parenting.
Your job as a parent will be filled with joy, sorrow, and pain, but you can be a great parent and win the parenting game if you follow six life lessons. Always be proactive, stay active, be reasonable, stay engaging, never stop being a parent, and create a winning parenting team.
This is one of the #1 most comprehensive Psychology Books ever written, and it's free on Kindle (Get a copy, because it's like a Masters Degree wrapped-up into a single book). However, I recommend that you upgrade to the Print edition, because that copy comes with images.
