Parents often forget who they are and start living solely for their children. This is not something to be proud of but something to worry about. This kind of an attitude makes them ineffective parents and makes the relationship with the child suffocating. So don’t sacrifice yourself, live your life, be happy, only then you can be the best parent to your child.
Forgive yourself: Don’t set unrealistic expectations from yourself that you should do everything for your child and give him the best. You can make errors, make wrong judgments, sometimes you may not have enough time. Don’t let guilt rule you. Forgive yourself and pat your self for all the good things you have done for your child.
Love yourself: Only a person who loves himself can give love to others. Be a role model for your child to impart this lesson of life. Show him how much you love and respect the way you are.
Pamper yourself: Don’t just drive around your child to hobby classes or make plans for his outings. At times chill out with your friends or your partner, do what you have longed to do in life and return to your child feeling rejuvenated and happy.
Face yourself: Analyze your strengths and your weaknesses as a human being. Be open with your child to admit these are the areas I need to work upon while these are the attributes I feel proud of. Your child will be proud of you and learn to marvel at his strong points and accept his weaknesses.
Trust yourself: Trust your instincts. Trust your intentions that you and only you can think the best
for his child. Never brood over what has happened. Think ahead and create a wonderful family with beautiful happy children.
