Parenting is a lifelong job and it is quite challenging. So if you are expecting a child and are about to become a parent soon then here are few tips and tricks that will help you right from the beginning
For Ease Of Travelling
When the baby is born he/she is likely to be unsettled and might cry for hours leaving the parents confused as to what did they do wrong. This can be a huge task while travelling which is why most couples don’t travel till the baby grows up. This can truly make your life difficult, so one way to make it a little easier is to invest in a bugaboo cameleon. Children are likely to get all excited and happy when they sit on the pram for the first time.
All you have to do is hand a toy to the child which will divert the child and keep him/her busy. Moreover this is a better option than carrying your baby everywhere, this makes them cranky and also makes their body hurt which is why they end up throwing a tantrum. Also if your baby is under six months then he/she might need breast milk. It is difficult to keep washing the bottles all the time in hot water, so a good hack is to invest in a sterilizer and a breast bump. This will make it easier for you to feed the child on the go. This is completely safe and is recommended by the experts as well.
Understanding The Child
A common mistake which is made by a lot of parents is that they assume that they know everything. They believe that the decisions they take on behalf of their child are always correct. This is completely wrong, parents often forget that they are merely human beings that make a lot of mistakes. So sometimes you need to let go of your ego and listen to the child. You need to respect their opinions instead of bashing yours on them. If a child feels that their parent is not going to listen to them then they are most likely going to be hiding stuff. So you need to be their friend. As mentioned above parenting is tough so this is easier said than done. This is why one should read books on parenting or perhaps go for some seminar or workshop.
Spend Time With Them
No money can buy the happiness of sharing and spending time with your children. A lot of parents due to their work commitments are not able to spend much time with their children. This makes them distant hence they grow up knowing that their father or mother is not going to be around them. Due to this a lot of children get misguided and end up taking the wrong part. So try to spend at least half an hour every day with your children and ask them about their days and have an open relationship with them.
Hope the above tips and advice help you to become a better parent.
