Positive parenting is simply the guidance of parents that keeps their kids on the right path; it has to be in the positive way, like, motivating your kids. Positive parenting would definitely lead to a better society. It isn’t a method or style of parenting but a belief, a new way of living, both for the parents as well as kids.
“It is better to bind your children to you by a feeling of respect and by gentleness, than by fear.” – Terence
Fear of parents can lead to distrust in parents.
Positive parenting ensures a secure attachment, paving a way on how the child will function as an adult and have a positive impact on brain development. It’s just about connecting yourself with the child. Make games for him/her, play games together, create puppet shows, read together- just remember ‘connect’.
Your children aren’t born knowing your rules. Punishing them for bad behavior doesn’t teach them good behavior. You have to give them the tools to do better before you can expect them to do better.
CONNECTION. EXAMPLE. TEACHING. RESPECT. EMPATHY. LOVE. These are your best parenting tools.
