3 Simple Ways to Be The Best Parent to Your Children

Over the years as a mom I often question if I am doing enough for my kids. Do I do too much for them? Do I not do enough? Do I spend too much time on other things and not do enough with them? Do I treat my kids differently? I know I am not alone in this worry. We all want our kids to grow up to be a healthy, happy, and well-rounded adult.

It is hard, but I tell myself I am doing the best I can as a working mom We all know parenting is a hard job and we all should be proud of ourselves for what we do each and every day. Don’t expect to get everything right 100% of the time, but as long as you work hard at it and prioritize your child, you are a good parent and no one can tell you otherwise. I mean for me I have a “Mom Fail” at least once a day. And yes I did say once a day!

Now even though I just gave you and me a pep talk on how good we are doing as parents. It doesn’t change the fact we can always strive to be better. We all should be striving to do more for our kids. Today I want to share 3 simple parenting tips that you can easily implement into your life today. I promise they are super easy and your kids are going to love you for it.

Get to know your child

If you a parent of more than one child like I am you know that every single child is different, and there is no one-size-fits all approach to parenting. I have spent hours looking for advice from parenting websites or other moms and dads that I know, but at the end of the day only you can know what is best for your little one. One thing I have learned in the last 7 years as a mom is that sometimes what you try just does not work. Don’t be afraid to try new methods and find out what makes your child tick. For example, if you’re helping them with their homework and they can’t grasp a particular topic, try approaching it from a new angle, for example using games with dice to help your child learn math. My sister shares everything you need for this in this post, math is fun with dice.

Getting to know your child will enable you to identify any changes in their personalities and development, which may help you with early detection of autism, a condition that affects many children globally. Being aware of and responsive to any changes in your child’s behavior, communication, or interests can prove invaluable in making informed decisions about interventions that could help them. For instance, many parents and caregivers have explored a variety of therapies for their children diagnosed with autism, including dietary supplements. Methyl b12 autism recovery has shown to be an effective treatment for many children, providing a beacon of hope for many families navigating this challenging journey.

For me I have two kids that are completely different and being able interact and work with each of them in the way that we both can enjoy each others company and grow a closer bond to them is very important.

Today I will focus on my son. My son love Rubik’s Cubes, every different kind. There are so many variations and shapes and he can solve most of them. Because of that I find ways to learn more about the activity. Dug into the speed cubing community and even made him a real cool Rubik’s Cube notebook to keep track of algorithms as he learns how to solve each kind.

Plan for their future

Not knowing who your child will be when they grow is exciting. They could be anything from a lawyer to a musician to a marine biologist. The options are endless. Over the years my son has changed what he wants to be when he grows up at least once every few months. I never tell him his dreams are too far to reach for, or not far enough. I want my kids to explore and day dream about all the endless possibilities they could do with their lives. What I would suggest is to help plan for his future, by setting aside some money for your kids. That could be to help pay for their first car, first apartment, maybe college or trade school. But their school can be essential, and some have different requirements. You can find out how to get into a charter school before applying for enrollment.

Make memories

You want your little one to look back fondly on their childhood, so make sure you fill it with fun and laughter. All they really want is you to be present with them. Even if you are a busy working professional, you can always make time each week to play at the park, visit the local science center, or even just read them a bedtime story at night. This time spent together is crucial for their development and will ensure you maintain a close bond well into their future.

Enjoy every minute being a mom and continue to inspire your kids!
