Teachable Moments for Kids to
Present Themselves in Everyday Life

Parenting is a difficult period. There is no straightforward road. No simple solutions. No one perfect way to parent. Yet, it appears everywhere you turn, and there is another "expert" advising you what you should and should not do with your children, and they ALWAYS conflict. The fairest you can do is love them, try your hardest to put together the difficult possibilities that you believe are good for them, and defer to those who know better than you do when you're in over your head. Sometimes, that might be your trusted pediatrician, while in further moments, you'll likely discover yourself turning to other knowledge, notably more years of knowledge under their straps who successfully navigated related challenges.

Teach Kids About The Reality Of The World

If you want the best out of your kids, give them a good education, instill decent values, and set them free. It's not simple to let go of the straps because we don't want our kids to get injured. But if you are educating your kids for the actual world, saying "No" to your kids can't be an act of affection. So if they are going to fall or hurt themselves, but they will grow confident, and they will be very pleased with your loving gift. Always make your kids do their own work, so in the future, they can accomplish their work without any problem.

Make Them Do There On Work

Most parents run around doing everything for their children, so much of the children don't get in involved in anything. Make them do their little thing like pack their school bag, take their plate to the kitchen; these things may look small and normal, but it is going to make them responsible for their work. Get them a planner to track their school work and other activities to keep them on track and what needs to be done by when.

Make Time For Your Kid

As time is the demand of every type of relationship, the same as in the case of the parents and child relationship. Giving time from your busy schedule to your children is one of the important steps in parenting. Parents should give time to their child, to do gossips, to know how he is spending his time in school and with his friends. This will create a friendly bond between parents and child. If you are working parents, you should schedule your routine in a way that you should awake at least ten minutes before breakfast. You should join your children at the table. You should specify a day in a week to spend a whole day playing different games, cards, or more. If you do not give time to your child, he will definitely show mischievous behavior to catch attention. This will create a bad impact on his personality.

Be a Good Role Model

The child's first role model is his parents. As he constantly watches his parents what they are doing, how they are behaving with others, how they talk to their elders. As children at an early age absorb whatever they see. So, if you want your child to be a good person, to talk nicely with others, to be honest, to be kind and be friendly with others, parents should watch on their motives, attitude, or behavior towards others. For example, if an old lady is carrying heavy grocery bags, you should help her to carry those bags and to put them in the car. If your child is looking at you what you are doing, something will definitely click to his mind that we should help others or we should respect others.

Be Flexible In Your Parenting Style

Parents should be flexible in their parenting style because what was your teaching method when your child was two years old will not work when he is in his teens. When children start growing up, he also develops a connection with the world outside. Maybe with the passage of time, his role model changes; you should also accept changes in him but don't lose connection and continue to guide them.
