Parenting is not an easy job and there is no one right way to successfully raise a child. But, there are a few things that successful parents do to ensure an all-round development of their child.
The independent.co.uk says any good parent wants their child to stay out of trouble, do well in school and go on to achieve success, both professionally and personally, as adults.
According to an article titled, '7 Habits Of Highly Successful Parents' by Meredith Carroll published in babble.com in 2015, "the definition of successful parents is one that is universally shared and also one that has much more to do with parents and very little to do with their children."
Some habits of successful parents are:
- They are ready for certain situations beforehand. For instance, they can sense when the baby is about to throw up and take appropriate decisions, which means there is no mess to clean up.
- They have the ability to handle their children during times when they would throw up tantrums or ask inane questions or make absurd demands.
- They can multitask. They can read bedtime stories while drinking water or having meals.
Apart from the above, some other habits of successful parents are letting their children play, limiting their children’s TV time, fostering the little artist in them, snuggling up to their children and talking to them.
