Are you aware that first time parenting
is trial and error? You may make mistakes parenting, but hopefully
you will be a responsible parent.
Being responsible for this new baby
that is coming to your family is a responsibility that you do not
want to take likely. You can never received too many parenting tips.
I recall that several of the high
schools have included as part of their student curriculum to
care for a doll. This doll is monitored to cry just like a real baby when it is in
need or distress. Although this is not the real deal, it gives the
students a glimpse of the responsibility of caring for a newborn. As
I watched a television program there were 15-year-old children on the
program giving their reasons for wanting to have a baby. Some stated
they wanted a baby so it would love them. When they made this
statement, they had no clue about the reality of taking care of a
baby. In fact, they are babes themselves.
Those that are already parents, have
probably figure this out at this point whether you are a teenage
parent or older. A few things that may be signs that you are a good
parent are as follows:
According to WebMd.com you cannot spoil
a child with love. I agree. Genuine love is not all the material
things, but giving your children the feeling and knowing that they
are truly loved. How many times have you heard a child say, “He
does not love me.” Those are the feelings of that child. Or have
you heard a child say, “I really feel loved.” I know words of
affirmation, “I love you, I enjoy our time together, you are so
special, and hugs and kisses will go along way to help a child feel

Don't Fix It
Do you try and fix all of your
children's problem's? Sometimes give your children time to find
their own solutions according to Parents.com. I would even take it a
step further and use this time to discuss possible solutions. Maybe
ask James or Sue, “How could they fix this or what other things
could you do?” You would be surprised at the amazing solutions
that children will come up with. I recall a principal making a
statement to a group of second graders. She said, “Employers want
people that can find solutions to their problems.” I thought this
is so true. Start early with your children encourage them to find
solutions to their own problems.
Fit & Fresh Kids' Reusable Lunch
I have mentioned this before. Role
Playing will give you a good idea of what your child's perception is.
I recall role playing with my children as they grew up. They
portrayed one of my children as doing whatever she wanted and showed
me as responding say, “That is okay.” I had to take a look at
the fact that they made it clear I was favoring one child even when
this child was in the wrong. Sometimes it may be an awakening for a
parent to have to see and admit that they have not been getting it
right, but that does happen.
These are just a few tips to help you
be a responsible parent. Help your child feel loved and wanted.
