The first step to develop good parenting skills is simply to believe that you are the best person for the job when it comes to your kids.
If you feel you are not raising your kids to a standard that you are happy with it is NOT because you are a bad mum or dad. It is simply because you have not been taught the necessary skills or given the appropriate information that you need to make the right choices.
Now I wish I could tell you that my little family resembles the Brady Bunch, all cute and perfect, but unfortunately I do not live in a fairytale. We have our great times and our not so great times.
However, I do love to search out information on parenting to learn new ways to deal with those not so great times. I am constantly amazed at how a small change in my attitude or in my actions can make such a big difference.
I want to share with you here all the insights and skills that I have learned over the years to improve the relationship that I have with my son and daughter.
Developing good parenting skills is a never ending job. Once you have a good grasp on how to best work with your two year old, all of a sudden your little angle turns three or worst still a teenager.
The good news is we dont have to start from scratch every year. The trick to being successful as a mother or father (and anything for that matter) is to adjust to the new circumstances that continually arise as our children grow.
Continue to use the skills that are working, and find new techniques to replace the skills that are now simply out of date.
