50+ Effective Parenting Tips For Toddlers and Teenagers – Part 5

Parenting Tips Part 1 || Parenting Tips Part 2 || Parenting Tips Part 3 || Parenting Tips Part-4

47.    Not everyone is A grader –  Don’t expect your kids to bring home the best progress report from school. Everyone is ‘differently’ genius. Some kids are best in academics while others are best in art, speaking skills, sports or in another field. Remember, only 5-10 percent of kids are A-graders and the world has not fallen due to this. So do not dishearten your kids by taunting them or forcing them to be the topper; instead encourage them to do things which they are best at. Soon you will find out their unique qualities and skills. Once you know, polish them more and help your kids shine all the way!   

48.    Visit Orphan House– Life never stops teaching; it keeps offering different flavors throughout. Some days we are excited, happy and satisfied while we experience tragic moments at certain stage of life. If your kids only enjoy the luxuries of life and are not exposed to challenges and problems, they will have difficult times in future. Taking them to Orphan House will help them understand the difficulties of orphans and being thankful to God for what they have. Taking some gifts (clothes, books and toys) and handing over to orphans will establish a soft and emotional bond between your kids and the less-fortunate kids of society.

49.    Visit Grave Yard –  One of the reasons for taking them to graveyards is to let them now that one day they will have same phase of life. Statistics prove that people who remember death are more happier than the ones who don’t. The reason they explain is that a person who understands that he has to leave this world one day, will have less greed, less expectations and less desires. Also you can use this opportunity to ignite their thoughts about their spiritual connection with God and explain them the concept of accountability (that God will do) after death. The benefit for this exercise is that your kids will have the sense of responsibility and the mission to do good in life.   

50.    Visit grandparents quite often – You don’t need to have a reason or benefit for taking your kids to their grandparents’ place. It is the right of grandparents that you and your kids meet them quite often. While it is highly recommended to keep your parents with you and give them all the love you have, however, if this is not possible for any reason, it is extremely important to take your kids to them very frequently. This is needed to teach your kids to value their relationships with elder people of society and also remember the blessings of youth. Further, grandparents have many life experiences which you may not have had. Their advices and guidance, and their prayers for you will always pave the way of success for you and your kids.

51.    Guide them about Sexual limitations – Due to advancement of technology and ease of availability of all kind of good and bad information, kids are getting exposed to sexual stuff at much earlier age than they are supposed to. Having said that, it is imperative for you to speak to your kids about such subjects so that they do not try to explore it themselves on internet. If they do, they will land in unethical, illicit and sensitive websites without you being aware of it. It is important for you to decide about what information and how much of it should be told to your kids based on their age category and their gender. Explain to them about distancing needs after they have become ‘adults’. Let them know the religious, social and lawful consequences of such acts. If you do not make sincere efforts on this subject, your kids will start searching about such stuff out of curiosity and may want to try this out practically that may lead to unexpected situations for you.

37.    Tell meaningful stories –  Stories are one of the best ways for teaching meaningful lessons of life. Stories stay in mind for longer duration and hence the message behind them. Read this awesome resource having 600+ short stories on love, relationship, success, parenting and many other life subjects. You may download android app here

38.    Empathic skills – When we don’t instill empathic behavior we end up raising care-free kids. Teach your kids on how to feel someone’s pain, how to read someone’s emotions, how to respond to a sad person, how to manage someone’s anger and how to put yourself in someone else’s shoes to feel their mental state. This will increase Emotional Quotient of your kids which is one of the important factors for a living a successful life.  

39.    Situation Control – Ask ‘What-would-you-do-if’ kind of questions. Try to create simple situations in home and let your kids propose solutions. Do not guide them, instead let them use their brain and come up with answers. Always give constructive feedback on their thoughts and encourage them to think more. You will ignite their creativity and also help them becoming more self-sufficient person. Kids who are not exposed to life problems may fail very quickly when challenged.

40.    Use adjectives and all the optimistic words in routine conversations – Usage of positive and constructive words have super impact on every human’s personality and you would want the same for your family. Take a print of word cloud and stick it on your refrigerator or in kids room. Practice these good words while interacting with your kids. You will see the difference yourself ! Check out this resource for 100 positive words for kids  

41.     Teach Simplicity – Let your children understand the different between needs and wants. As much as you can, keep your children to live their lives in “wants” categories. The wishes have no limits, which mean, if you fulfill one today, they will come up with another one. Your children do not have to buy new clothes if they can wear the current ones, they don’t need to buy another laptop after every 2 years. They don’t need to upgrade their mobile within 2 years.

42.    Ask Thought provoking Questions – Asking questions triggers and ignites the thought process of humans. If you want your kids to be tomorrow’s leaders, start asking big questions (depending upon their age. For example: How can we ensure every hungry person on earth sleeps with full tummy. What kind of future cars will look like? What features do you want to have in your mobile?

43.    Don’t Spoil Them – fulfilling all of their desires immediately is not a sign of good parenting. Even the wish is so easy to grant, teach them the value of patience. One approach is to set target for them before they entitled themselves to earn it. For example: If your kid wants you to buy a cycle, ask him to learn MS Power Point and make a 4-5 page presentation about benefits of cycles. This strategy will force them to learn Power Point. Let them understand what it takes to earn something in life, instead of getting it for free.

44.    Punishment Vs Consequences –  While punishing them, do not bring your emotions in the conversations. Be neutral in your tone with them. Don’t tell them that you are punishing them, instead let them know, in a police tone, that they are simply facing the result of their mistake. If they don’t do this mistake they wouldn’t be facing this consequence. This approach will install sense of responsibility and ownership of their actions.  

45.    Encourage them to express their thoughts on paper. It is recommended by Harvard® that writing our emotions (especially when angry) helps us cool down. Sometimes our instant anger more than what it is supposed to be. When we write our thoughts (and associated emotions), we neutralize our reaction to a greater extent. This enables our anger muscles to get back to normal. Apart from that, try asking your kids to write about:  “what are 50 things you are thankful God for?” “What do you feel when you fight with your sibling”

46.    Let Them Do Weekend Grocery –  Let them make a list of things they have to purchase. Give them overview of the kitchen and explain what are the different components needed to run the food system of family. Do the same for every non-food item to be purchased. Once you explain them, let them come up with a detailed list of items. Then take them to the market and ask them to find out those stuff and fill in the trolley. This includes choosing the raw vegetables and fruits. Guide them on how to differentiate between fresh and unhealthy stuff.

50+ Effective Parenting Tips For Toddlers and Teenagers – Part 3

Parenting Activities Part 1 Parenting Activities Part 2

27.    Develop social skills – No I am not talking about Facebook or Instagram here. What I mean is that your kids should learn how to develop and sustain relationships in real life. It is highly recommended that kids pay visit to their cousins, grandparents, friends and attend social events in the neighborhood. It’s well known fact that kids with better social skills progress more in personal and professional life. Encourage your kids to maintain relationships not only during good times but bad times too.

28.    Subscribe the right YouTube channels – If you have Smart TV let them subscribe to qualitative, knowledgable, informative channels. Chose the channels that have long lasting impact on your kids’ personality and their future. Discourage them for wasting their time on Netflix or online gaming channels.   

29.    Vaccination track – Well, this is something you must be doing already. Just in case you do not have formal record for your kids’ vaccines, please do so. We never know when this kind of stuff is needed.  

30.    Organize their documents in a file – In recent years we have to maintain so many records for our kids. It is recommended to purchase separate folders/files for each kid to keep their records organized. You may keep birth certificates, vaccines records, gadgets warranty receipts, schools fee receipts and off course their academic records.  

31.    Back-up the documents in your email – While physical record management is important, it is highly recommended to take its picture and send it to your Gmail. This will ensure you have all the records available with you on the go. And in case, the physical copy is damaged or lost, you still have a copy of it in your Gmail for quick needs.

32.    Set reminders for ID cards, passport renewals – It is recommended to make an excel file and enter the expiry dates of all important documents such as Passport renewals, bank cards renewal, car renewal, vis renewal, insurance renewal and so on. Print this file and paste it on inner side of cupboard or on refrigerator so that it stays under your radar.

33.    Set yearly targets – Try to set New Year Resolutions and encourage your kids to learn or achieve something new every year. Help your kids writing down their targets such as learning Horse riding, losing 3 kg weight, learning Microsoft Excel skills, writing 30 articles and submitting to blogs such as this one for publication

34.    Travel together – Travelling together gives enormous exposure to our kids. Instead of buying new costly gadgets every year, plan visiting another city or country. Let your kids experience new things. Remember, you need to uplift their information level, maturity and teach them about general life lessons. Experiencing new activities unleashes your kids’ personality.  

35.    Dine out together – If traveling to other city or country is something heavy on your pocket, it is suggested to take your kids for dining out, you don’t have to choose costly places though. As parent you need to ensure that dine out time is spent in light mode. Discuss about good memories, future plans or simply share jokes. Let the dine out time become the best family time for your kids.

36.    Spiritual guidance and exposure – God is the source of all the good in our life. Let your kids practice gratitude by constantly reminding about God’s blessings. These days kids develop delayed-gratitude because most of their wishes are fulfilled quickly. Read some articles about connection-with-God and narrate to your kids. Not only that, you need to practice such traits if you want your kids to be spiritually strong. Remember, things do not bring happiness, it is our state of mind that decides the level of happiness. It is proven that people who have strong spiritual connections with God, people who practice gratitude, people who dedicate their times for God result in high levels of contentment.

50+ Powerful Parenting Tips For Toddlers and Teenagers – Part 2

Parenting Activites Part-1

14.    Spend on Memories Instead of Stuff –  Teach your kids that a new gadget will give them temporary happiness, instead going to a fun event, exploring new city or country will give them life time happiness.

15.    Create Things to Do List – Science proves that the probability of completion of activities is very high when we write things down and keep them in front of our eyes. Let your kids create check lists or to-do lists and place it on refrigerator or any other place where it is seen by everyone frequently.

16.    Visit a Poor Vicinity – Show them challenges and struggles others are facing. They will not only develop the sense of gratitude but also embrace life challenges which they may face in future.

17.    Show Them When You Do Charity work – Kids learn more through their eyes. Lead by example and you will see the results yourself.

18.    Ignite Thoughts – Ask questions to trigger thoughts (what do you think about, what’s your opinion) – what would you like to change in the word. Asking questions is one of the best techniques you should use for their mental growth.

19.    Emotions Control and Expression of Moods – Explain them different emotions such as being angry, stubborn, sad and so on. Give fair treatment to their emotional response. This will help them strengthening their emotional being. Remember, Emotional Quotient is extremely important for the success of your kids turning adults.   

20.    Install Character building thoughts – There are many personality traits which you need your children to adopt to. You definitely want them Optimistic, Resilient, Hardworking, Self-motivating, family-oriented, focused and spiritually strong. However you need to create awareness on these aspects by initiating such discussions during casual talks and then let your kids provide you feedback next day. Explain your kids on what it takes to be a great man.

21.    Fair Treatment – Balanced and equal love for every kid has to be ensured by kids else it will lead to inferiority complex which will have strong impact on your child’s personality and character. Inferiority complex causes shyness and lack of confidence hence it is imperative to maintain balanced environment in the home. Even if one of your kids is performing better in class or you like him/her for whatsoever reason, it is not appropriate to praise him in siblings’ presence due to the above mentioned reasons.

22.    Assign Small Projects – Assigning small projects to kids will develop sense of responsibility. You may ask them to prepare grocery list, organize their books, clean store room, cleaning bicycle or car, washing parking area, grass cutting, cleaning their room, dish washing and many other house chores.

23.    Screen the screen  –  Know what they are watching. Even if you do not have much sense about Technology, you cannot keep your eyes closed. If you do not know what your kids are watching online, be ready for any big shock. Remember, you don’t have to be hard on your kids, yet you have to be responsible in explaining on why you need to know about their activities.

24.    If you don’t teach, they will learn the harder way – Spend some time to learn on how to speak to kids on difficult topics. Due to advancement in technology, kids now have much more easy access to vulgar stuff than in the past. If you do not explain them, they will ask their adult brother – “internet”  who may take them to the illicit, unethical websites.  

25.    Health is top most priority –  Establish healthy routines at home. Practice vegetable/fruits day per week. Practice no-meat day every week. Practice no sugar-day and so on. Dedicate one hour in 2-3 days per week for physical activity. Whether indoor (exercise, table tennis etc.) or outdoor (soccer, park visit, basketball, swimming etc), physical activities are must. Remember the rule that if you spend money on fast food today, you will end up spending your money on medicines when you grow old.   

26.    Know their friends but don’t do strict policing – Every mother, if given a choice, would like to choose the friends as per her scrutiny however this is not how life works. Kids will choose their friends based on their interest, liking and mental comprehension. Yet, as parents, spend some time with your kids and know who their friends are, what are their interests, what family back-ground they are from, what extracurricular activities do they perform and what kind of grades they have in school. Guide your kids on how to choose their friends and why a good friend changes our life.

50+ Effective Parenting Tips For Toddlers and Teenagers – Part 1

1.         Don’t Create Rules – Create Thoughts –  While some rules are good to follow, so many rules will create a dry environment at home. Such kids usually lack in self-confidence when grown up. Any rules you create should have a genuine reason to satisfy your kids’ thought process. If your kid is not satisfied with the rule, probably you have not explained them properly.

2.         Provide Guidance Instead of Giving Instructions –  Instruction is a one-way process and is not encouraged for parenting. Guidance and collaboration expands your kids’ mental horizon. Remember, Instruction is “What to do”, whereas guidance is “What to do, Why to do and How to do”

3.         Practice Daily Daddy Time –  You might be a superman working hard to earn the bread for the family, it will be an act of irresponsibility if you are not sparing 5-10 minutes every day as “Daddy Time”. During this time, you should be fully available to your kids – no mobile, no laptop, no TV, nothing else. Only you and your kids please. Your kids should express their feelings with you, ask questions, discuss their concerns and share their opinions on any life subject.   

4.         Promote Sibling love – I am not aware of any family where siblings do not fight. Siblings’ brawls are simply inevitable, yet as a parent you need to promote sibling love through different activities such as dining together, sharing home stuff, family games etc.  

5.         Read Books Together – Once in a week everyone in the family should pick a book and read it for 30-60 minutes. As rightly said, today’s readers are tomorrow’s leaders. There is no other best companion than a good book. Reading together will encourage your kids to read more, develop their interest in reading which will lead them to become brand new personalities!

6.         Teach How To Save And Spend –  Try giving monthly pocket money but don’t guide them where to spend. Ask them to plan how they would spend and save money. If you micro-manage, their cognitive skills won’t get polished.  

7.         Instill Manners –  Spare some moments every other day and guide your kids about general manners about treating family, friends, neighbors, guests. Explain them how to meet, greet and treat people.

8.         Guide On How To Treat Strangers –  Safety and security has become more of a concern these days. As a parent you need to let your children know on what to say and what not to say to stranger. They should know that revealing private information could lead to catastrophic situations.  

9.         Allow Small Decisions and Tolerate Mistakes – Do not guide them on small matters. Let them do mistakes. Do not build roads for them. Tolerate their mistakes so they can learn and improve. Let them fail on small activities. Small mistakes will help them learn on how to prevent. Mistakes and failures will increase their resilience which is one of the most important factors of life. Highly resilient person has the mental capability to bring himself/herself back to normal state when challenged with problems. People who are not resilient develop stress as they do not have flexibility (and self-control) on things that go against their wish.

10.    Stay In Mentor And Guide Mode – Parenting job is not limited to a specific hour or day; it’s a life-long effort. Train yourself to stay in ‘guidance mode’ instead of scolding or mocking your kids. Consider every situation as a moment of opportunity to improve.

11.    Teach Importance of Time – Disciplined and responsible kids are far more successful in life than the rest. Don’t let them to be lazy losers. Try to organize their schedule. Encourage them to create their time tables on paper or on computer. If they use mobiles, encourage them to use time management applications.

12.    Train Digital Skills –  With the advancement of technology it is imperative for parents to help their kids learn new technologies and soft-wares. This does not mean buying costly licenses and subscriptions. Let them learn new stuff that is freely and readily available such as Mind Map applications, coding for kids, robotics,  Microsoft Excel and so on.

13.    Encourage Asking Questions –  Even if your kids ask stupid question, discouraging them will hit their thought process hardly. Further, their confidence will be shattered and you will end up having a shy kid very soon.
