Parenting has got no thumb rule and cannot be guided by a fixed protocol. Children are different, their psychology is different, their needs, requirements, and reactions are different. So, the style of parenting also needs to be different and personalized for each individual child.
Parenting that is full of positivity, creativity, supportiveness, and health-orientation can be called a good/healthy parenting. To bring up your child the healthy way, consider the following factors of good/healthy parenting tips:
Focus on balanced diet: Healthy body and mind starts with a healthy diet. Kids are fussy while eating, but you need to discover innovative ways to feed them what their body needs. A proper assimilation of all the important food nutrients, vitamins and minerals are needed for their physical and mental growth.
Timely health check-ups: Keeping your child away from deficiency diseases, communicable diseases, and others for which they are vulnerable is important. Despite taking enough care at home, visiting a doctor at regular intervals is required. Especially, visit ophthalmologist and dentists to rule out any chances of eye or oral sickness. However, other body parts must also be examined that will be guided by the doctor.
Engagement in physical activities: Physical activities give enough opportunity to children to release their energy. It also builds their stamina and immunity. Engage your child in his or her favorite sport or simply give some field time where they can play free.
Brainstorming time with kids: Spend some time with your child exploring their thought process and imaginations. Talk to them, ask them, and let run their imaginations free so that they express themselves the way they want. It will increase their IQ and thinking power. Putting them to imaginary situations and asking them to come out with a solution will storm their brain. It will also enhance your bonding.
Extending emotional support and building trust: Be there with your child when he needs you. No matter your kid is a toddler or a teenager, there are times when he might feel lonely and will need your support. Believe in your child and trust him so that he can express anything in front of you without any hesitation. There is no place for fear in good/healthy parenting.
Accept your child’s failure: Three will be times when your child will fail where you want to see him successful. Accept this failure and extend support so that he tries again courageously. Failures will come his way, so do not connect your prestige with his success or failure. Your support and togetherness will yield results in the long run.
