Become a Great Mom or Dad: A Great Tips Bringing up Children

If you want to facilitate good study habits, make sure your child has a full belly. A child needs energy to study effectively. It will prevent them from becoming over tired and keep their brain working. A small snack, like an apple or some peanut butter crackers, can do wonders during study time.

A great tip for any parent is to demonstrate consistency and follow-through in all interactions with children.  Parents who continually issue the same commands and potential consequences and fail to see them through will likely end up with children who are unwilling to listen or behave.  Standing by your statements will teach kids to pay attention and regularly do what you ask of them.

Spend time with your children. While there has been a movement in recent years for parents to focus on "quality time" with their children, most children simply want "quantity time". Even if you're not doing anything, your child enjoys being around you - savor it. In addition, spending time interacting with young children is vital to their intellectual development.

Develop a support network of people you can call for help with breastfeeding.  The early days after giving birth are stressful and tiring.  It is very tempting to just get a bottle and hope it works when things start going wrong.  If you have a strong support system in place ,you will be able to contact them for advice and support.  That support will make you less likely to give up and go for the bottle.

As kids get to be older, they can still have the same difficulty in calming down as they had when they were small babies. You can provide them with a place to calm themselves by throwing a blanket over a table to give them a safe cocoon type place to regroup.

Need a break from parenting but can't afford a babysitter?  Give a play date a try.  A well set up play date will give your child some extra socialization and stimulation.  In addition, you'll get to enjoy some adult time with the other parents who are present.

Do not allow your own mood to interfere with consistent disciplinary approaches for your children. Even if you are tired or feeling irritable, you should not deliver an uncommonly harsh (or uncommonly lax) disciplinary action. Failure to consistently use the same method creates an impression of flexibility and "wiggle room" that can greatly compromise the effectiveness of your rule-setting.
