Tricks to Calm Parenting, Children Learn By Watching
Parenting is something most parents feel should just be done.

don’t need to go to any school to be a good parent.
Well that’s a good perception but believe you me, there are things you
need to learn in parenting. That’s if you really want to be a good parent.
Often times we don’t think before we act as parents. We react to the spur
of the moment without giving it a second thought.
There are times when we have the opportunity to think as parents before we
act but we immediately follow our instincts.
If we are are a little more patient, our instincts may change or re-direct us
to a more positive response.
Calm and effective parenting is one aspect of parenting most people feel is
hard. It’s not solely difficult but it starts with you.
The principles of good parenting is the same everywhere irrespective of
tribe, race and religion.
Approaching parenting with calmness helps you resolve a lot of parenting
challenges peacefully and makes you a better parent vis-a-vis raising
better children and better tomorrow’s parents.

Carol is a mother of 4. She grew up in a middle class home. Her Mum was fond

screaming at her older children. Because she wouldn’t love to hear her
complain of headaches.

realised you are portraying a character you never liked as a child?
