Parenting Guidance

With the holidays rushing directly at us, this typically tends to be the time of the year that we question ourselves the most.

  • Have I spent as much time as possible with my family this year?

  • Have I been a good  parent?

  • Am I setting my children up for success?

  • Should I be spending this much money on gifts?

  • Am I teaching them to value materials or people?

  • Am I patient enough?

  • Should I be doing more?

The answer is: becoming a parent can be the most exhilarating, yet challenging, job that you will ever take on. Children prefer a happy parent over a perfect parent, and they remember you for that. Children also learn that as human beings, we tend to make mistakes but owning up to those mistakes and making the efforts to fix them are the teaching moments we unconsciously provide to them.

Here is a neat Parenting Guidance chart that you can use to keep yourself focused and proud of yourself.
