Parenting entails number of responsibilities that are probably going to continue for the rest of their lives. It is not a one time job. It requires patience, dedication, optimism and several other must haves. To establish better connection with your child, you must be empathic to your child. Listen carefully to what they want to convey. Give them your undivided attention. This is one process that should be started from a very young age. Kids love it when they find their parents taking them seriously. Everyone loves attention and kids even more so. Even though, most of the times what kids say, do not make any sense yet you should try to understand the underlying tone and their feelings.
There is a fact about values that whatever religious or moral values parents plant in child at an early age, remains with them forever. Imagine the positive impact of good values taught to your kids in future. They will always be guided well in life. Humans will always suffer some sort of problems, pains but good values will always guide them in their life journey.
Many parents forget that a child emulates them. Child often talks, behaves and thinks the way his parents behave in real life. Parents want their children to achieve many things in life but they must remember, they should lead by example. You should be the person you want your child to be. If parents want to feel proud of children then children should also have a reason to feel proud of their parents. Parenting is one such job where despite all the good intentions and behaviors can arise. Modern lifestyle has become such. Time is of biggest constraint yet parents should try their best to spend quality time with their kids. Parenting is a blessing. Try to rejoice this.
