common skills all parents should
Parenting isn't easy and there are some very important skills that you either already have or need
to develop as you go along. Lots of parents simply raise their kids in the manner that they were
raised and that doesn't always yield the best results. In this article we are going to look at some of
the most important skills that each parent needs to have.
One of the most important things that you can do as a parent is to set a good example for your
children. It's much easier to tell kids to do or not do something than it is to be a good role model,
but this is what they really need more than anything else. Kids learn more from observation than
by what you tell them, so it's critical that your actions match your words at all times.
When you're a parent you're naturally the first and most important role model your child will have
and if you set a really good example, your children have a much better chance of living up to the
standards that you set for them. Parents who simply tell their kids not to do something, like using
profanity, but then are always doing that thing themselves will find that it is the actions and not the
words that the kids heed.
One skill that is vital for parents to work on is actually being interested in the same things their
kids are interested in.
There is only so far you can go here, of course, but your kids will appreciate any effort you make
at being a part of the world they live in. A typical example of this is finding time to attend an event

phone or in front of the television. For this reason, one of the skills you need as a parent is to
teach your kids the value of free play. In addition to the organized activities for which you have
signed them up, don't forget how valuable old fashioned play time at the park, on the playground
or during play dates with friends can be. Research shows that kids who don't play enough are
prone to social problems like aggression, ADD and depression. You can encourage this by having
family days on the weekends that involve lots of outdoorsy stuff like swimming and hiking.
The tips here are some of the most important skills you will need if you want to be a good parent
to your kids. Every single parent has unique hurdles to overcome and those hurdles will be
dictated by the personalities of you and your kids. It is important to remember that parenting is a
long process and that it changes some every day as your son or daughter grows up and that
putting some solid guidelines in places is helpful both to you and your kids.
