Here are some quick Parenting Tips: Be sure to check out the options to the right for my services!
Be a good listener: It is important to listen to what your child has to say, it helps to teach them how to listen.
Be supportive: Whether it is academics, athletics or in life there is no substitute for parental support.
Be slow to anger: Sometimes a child acts out because that is how they know how to get attention. Try a few different approaches while you are calm. Anger is not the key to discipline.
Admit when you're wrong: Although you may be superman or superwoman in their eyes, it is important for them to see you as a person. Admitting when you make a mistake helps them feel connected to you and develop social skills for life.
