Positive Parents and Parenting by Mrs. Dorothy Barron

Positive Parents and Parenting by Mrs. Dorothy Barron

If you are a Parent or serve in the role as a Parent, then you can attest to the fact that there are both challenges and joys of being a Parent and parenting. You get to be the adult and the children have to mind you for a change (I can imagine smiles, chuckles and laughs).

You also wear many hats and assume many roles; thank each and every one of you for all you do.

The key to being positive Parents and parenting is to glean from the experiences of others; but do not become totally consumed and overwhelmed with information and from the dictates of others. After all, each child is different and unique. Also, remember that at one time, parenting was new experience for each and every parent.

Observation, common sense, logic and your own personal experiences are your greatest assets. You will make mistakes and more mistakes. Learn to laugh at yourself and with your child/ren. Take it in strides. Remember those things you said, you would never do and/ or things you would change  when you became a parent; guess what? Here’s your chance!

Reflect over the past years, you have a host of your own unique experiences to draw from. Why do you think most grandparents seem to have the answers and solutions? At some point in time you too will be able to look back and be glad you gave it your best.

Last week, it was suggested that you do something special for your child. This week do something special for yourself. Have a great weekend!
