There are a lot of people who really want to raise children. However, not more than a half of them have the skills of parenting the children. The reason is those skills are not included in the school curriculum, even the college or university. This makes lots of parents have to struggle in parenting their children. Indeed, certain courses have been conducted to help those parents, but it is not enough to cover all parents. If you are raising a child, it is a must for you to apply positive parenting style. It means your child must be raised with any violence, yelling, creaming, smacking, and other negative things. You have to make sure that every single thing you do is based on your love to your child. Being a little bit strict or giving time up will be fine, as long as it aims to fix your child negative attitude.
One of the important aspects in positive parenting style is good communication. This is the way you talk nicely and listen to what your child says carefully. Although your child may not say the words nicely, you have to keep listening well and do not interrupt her. By doing this, you are at the same time letting your child to look at you and learn how to behave and communicate to others. Polite and warm conversation builds your child attitude while she is talking to other people especially the elder ones. In addition, regular communication develops your child’s self-esteem and confidence. If your child can communicate to you very well, there is higher opportunity that she will be able to communicate with her peers well.
If problems appear, you need to encourage your child to find the roots and solutions. It is better than forcing your child to follow the solutions you suggest her. This may take time but your child is learning. so, there is nothing wrong for taking longer time for certain problems which do not need immediate actions. At the same time, you are teaching and forcing her to think creatively. This is better option you may apply, so that your child will not always rely on you whenever she has problems.
