Although there are various styles of parenting out there, almost all experts would agree with the following guidelines. Love them unconditionally. Never let them forget that, regardless of what they do or where they go, they will always be your children and you will always love them. Constantly catch them “doing things right”. This will reinforce appropriate behavior. Give them choices, not ultimatums. Whenever possible, make sure they have options to choose from.

    Have you ever examined your daily routine? Does it serve you in reaching the goals you set out for in life? Discipline people tend to be creatures of habit. Looking at it, isn’t that what our daily routine is, mostly our habits? This is tricky, because as human beings we have a need for certainty, but we also like spontaneity in our lives as well.

  • Parenting Message

    The most important part of parenting is also the toughest. That is: being the example.
    I once read somewhere that "parents are patterns." It's so true. Everything we do, say, feel... Our kids absorb and make their own. If we look at ourselves we act and say many things that our parents said.
