Raising a child requires a lot of effort and patience and sometimes even after that your child would be messing it up. Here are few tips on how to raise your kid right:
Make them your priority
You need put your child as your priority. This can be really hard especially if you have to work in order to run the house. However, despite this you have to make time for your child every single day. You and your partner need to take turns and constantly be there for him/ her. Every little thing counts, so try to drop them to school before you go to work, and once you are back try to spend at least an hour with them. If you are busy on weekdays, then keep the weekends free so you could go out on family brunches and take your kids to park.
Do not give in
This is something most parents fail to do, they get so tired with the tantrums of their child/children that they end up giving in to all their demands. Even if you can afford to put them to the best international school in Bangkok or give them the latest toy or tab, make sure you don’t give in to all their demands immediately. This is because as they grow older their demands will get bigger and they will never understand the value of money. A good way to teach them the importance of money is to make them work for it. For example ask them to help you with daily chores if they want the latest toy. This way they will know that money doesn’t come easy and one has to work hard to earn it.
Boost their confidence
It is important to encourage your child to develop new skills. Thanks to the internet one doesn’t have to go to an expensive school such as international school Bangkok Thailand to learn this. Today the easiest way to learn something is through YouTube and it doesn’t cost a penny. So if your child shows any interest in music or dancing, then encourage them to show cast their talent. Buy them a guitar so they could learn to play or tell them to take part in talent shows. Also it is important for you to take time off your schedule and watch them doing what they like.
Be strict when necessary
As a parent it is also necessary for one to be strict with their child when it is necessary to do so. For example if your child is using foully language or is not sticking to his/her bedtime then you need to turn into a strict parent. This doesn’t mean you have to beat them, but you need to make sure that your child is scared of you so he/she will be obedient next time.
Raising a child is a difficult job, but make sure that you do the above in order to raise them right.
