Ten (10) Parenting Principles

Children don’t come with an instruction manual. Every kid has his own unique identity. They need different things, act differently and presume things differently. As a result, they need to be guided and raised distinctively. Parents can only try different parenting styles to see what works with their kids and what does not. Sometimes they may fail while other times, they may gain success. There is no set rule to raise a child. However, there are some principles of good parenting that may help to make more conscious decisions.

Based on the social science research of about 75 years, Laurence Steinberg, PhD, framed out the ten basic principles of good parenting, which was published in a book of the same name.

Steinberg stated these principles are the foundation of good parenting. They can help encourage empathy, honesty, self-reliance, kindness, cooperation, and cheerfulness in kids; at the same time also prevent all sorts of child behaviour problems. They are not only helpful for parents, but for everyone who deals with children including coaches, teachers or babysitters. Here are Steinberg ten principles:

Every parent loves and adores their kid, but you need to set a boundary. There is no limitation to the warmth and affection you would have for your kid. The problem begins when you start to take other things lightly in the name of love. Leniency, lowered expectations or material possessions as a way to express love will only spoil your kids.

We understand that it might be difficult for you to manage the home and work together. There may be times when you would be more focused on work due to the approaching deadline, but that should not come in between you and your kid. Rearrange your priorities and be available for your kid both mentally as well as physically.
