Tips for Effective Role-Model To Your Child

 

If you want your child to learn it, you have to be it. ⁣⁣⁣ Children are biologically wired to follow the example of their parent. Your words and your authority as a parent are not enough to teach your children how to live. ⁣⁣⁣ 

 

⁣⁣It has to start with you. ⁣⁣⁣ If you have to be it to teach it, then self-work is one of the most important practices you can do as a parent. ⁣⁣⁣Just show them the way. ⁣ 

 

Tips for Effective Role-Model To Your Child:  

 

  • Include your children in family discussions, and use these as ways to show them how people can get along with others and work together. 
  • Practice what you preach. Children notice when you don’t. 
  • Work towards a healthy lifestyle by eating well and exercising regularly.
  • Avoid making negative comments about your body – and other people’s too. Not only will you be healthier, but you will send an important message about body image and acceptance. 
  • Show that you enjoy education and learning. If you make it seem interesting and enjoyable rather than a chore, you child is more likely to have a positive attitude toward school. 
  • Keep a positive attitude in your life – think, act, and talk in an optimistic way. 
  • Take responsibility for yourself by admitting your own mistakes and talking about how you can correct them. Do not blame everything that goes wrong on other people or circumstances. 
  • Use problem-solving skills to deal with challenges or conflicts in a calm and productive way. Getting upset or angry when a problem comes up teaches your child to respond in the same way. 
  • Show kindness and respect to others in your words and your actions.
