Unfair Comparison


Our parenting lessons just can’t be complete with this post on uniqueness of every child.

Tantrum


Our 20th chapter in #ParentingIntangibleWonder series deals with tantrum and it’s effect. If you are thinking only children have tantrum and we adults manage things accordingly, then my friends you are half correct because even adults have tantrums and kids deal with it. Only difference is that kids can’t manage or explain us but we as adults manage their tantrums and sometimes play harsh on their unwanted demands.

Yes, friends it’s only that adults name their tantrums as habit, behavior, or so called their need to survive. Lets see few simple situations where we adults show our tantrum triat as kids.

Sleep and its importance in children and parent life is one the important aspect to deal with. You maybe wondering what is rocket science in this feature but let me tell you in this 19th part of the series #ParentingIntangibleWonder that SLEEP has few nuances and if done with few conditions then there is a magical transformation in child.

Sleep is required rest by the body and mind, or one can say system reboots after a GOOD sleep. How one gains from a sleep is the key?

Rejection


Lets hover over our 18th topic on how to teach the kids to handle rejections? This is among the pivotal lesson that every child should be taught.

We have seen many children getting annoyed or rather get very cranky when they lose a game or a competition. It is human nature where each one want to be at the top of the ladder, but that is not possible; sometimes we win and sometimes we loose. But the main prospect is to deal with the rejection with grace.

Quality vs Quantity


No we are not going to discuss quantity of toys or books or dresses your child demands. These are trifle issues when the matter comes to TIME.

Our 17th parenting topic is about Quality Time vs Quantity Time. 
Quality time is what kids need the most from you. One must savour the quality moments spent with kids as that lasts in our memories forever and will never come again.                                   
Lets us take a simple example from our day to day life. If you are with your child and busy with your laptop or phone the whole day and if you say that they have spent a day with kids then you are incorrect!

Perfect Partner


The 16th extract from #ParentingIntangibleasset speaks about how one must involve the kids in the activities we do.
It’s very important to involve the kids in the activities of the house to let them understand the importance of each task in every aspect and moreover they feel attached to the activities and responsible.

Many a times we have seen elders avoiding the involvement of kids thinking they will not be able to windup things as fast as we elders do or they may put up ample questions which would delay the task. But it’s not the right way, we know children are great observant and are curious to act like us.

Negotiation Skills


“I want this Avengers game. I want it, want it want it!” Came the verdict from a child to his mother next to me in a toyshop, where I waited for the reaction of mother.
She said “we have a similar one at home”.

“But this is a new version, and even my friend has it”, replied enthusiastic child; and the next moment his mother even added this Avengers game to the billing list.

I kept on wondering child gave a proper reasoning to receive the game but here his mother couldn’t reason out for NO.

Leniency


The twelfth lesson on parenting deals with, when to be strict with kids, how much.
We will take each aspect one by one:

WHEN:
Its very thought provoking concept as to when we as elders should correct our kids and sometimes even possibly taking strict action. Its not right to always keep pressuring the kids to be focused should be an absolute no-no. Make them learn by setting examples; you do a task in a particular way then let the child observe you.

Kick Start Mornings


Lets walk towards our eleventh parenting topic, hurdle of waking up our kids in morning to get ready and off to school in time.  So many things need to be completed on time probably I should say in time.

Boundaries & its Significance



A parent always tries to fulfill the unlimited demands of a child, but at times parents also require saying “NO” to few demands. This little word NO, holds a lot of importance and restricts a child from doing it again. This is nothing but setting boundaries for our child, which is an important aspect of parenting.

A boundary is nothing but a line drawn around us to know from where to start and where to end; which always makes you feel safe and sets mind to work within it. We often set boundaries for ourselves and work within it. And we also do the same for our children; child too feels protected and learns many things through it.

As a parent we need to make a child understand that limitations are not always restrictions done in a negative way nor they are a kind of punishment. Limitation’s is not stopping one to perform instead it is a kind of a line drawn to get benefited through them and limitations done in a right manner are always fruitful. “Boundaries are meant to protect life but not limit our pleasures” very aptly quoted by Merlin Wilde.

Appreciation & Its Magic


Parenting starts with this little gesture, yes ‘Appreciation’ which makes a child stands out with confidence.

Saying good words and sharing them with everyone is a good habit, which parents can instill in a child. The tender heart lits up when we tell them that they have done something great. It’s not necessary to gift a child expensive items but a pat with a smiling face can do wonders.
