Steps to More Effective Parenting


Improving Your Child's Self-Esteem

Children begin to feel confident when they see themselves through their parents' eyes as babies. The tone of your voice, your body language, and every facial expression will be absorbed by your children. Your words and actions as a parent influence the development of your child's self-esteem more than anything else.


Praising them for their successes, no matter how small, will make them proud. Allowing children to do things independently makes them feel capable and strong. In contrast, belittling or negatively comparing a child to another child can make the child feel worthless.

Don't make exaggerated statements or use words as weapons. Comments like "What a stupid thing to do!" and "You're acting more like a baby than your little brother!" can be just as damaging as a physical blow.



Have you ever idea  about how frequently you react badly  to your children in a day? You may find that you criticize them more often than you praise them. I don't know. How do you feel about a boss who gives you overly negative advice, even if it's well-intentioned?

A more effective approach is to catch your kids doing the right thing: "You made the bed without asking, that's great!" or "You made the bed without asking!" ``I was watching you play with you, and you were very patient.'' These statements further help encourage good behavior. In the long run, it's better than repeating the bad words.


Meditation

Meditation provides both short-term stress relief and long-term stress management benefits. There are many different forms of meditation you can try, each one unique and offering its own appeal.

You can also develop a mantra that you repeat in your mind while breathing slowly and deeply. Alternatively, you can take a few minutes to practice mindfulness. Mindfulness means focusing on the present moment. Pay attention to what you see, hear, taste, touch, and smell.


Practicing Progressive Muscle Relaxation

In progressive muscle relaxation, all the muscles in your body are relaxed in groups. Always try to set rules, you can start with a few deep breaths.

Next, practice tensing and relaxing each muscle group, starting from your forehead and working your way up to your toes.

With a little practice, you'll learn to recognize muscle tension and tightness, and you'll be able to relax more easily. However, each time you exercise, you should feel a sense of relaxation enveloping your body.
