HOW TO BE A STRONG PARENT

What the world needs now is a big bunch of strong parents who have the courage to stand firm and do what they think is right.

This is hard to do because the toxic culture we are immersed in influences our kids in negative ways, kids emulate their peers, and many parents don’t have the guts to say, “No!”

Yes, being a strong parent is a tough job but there is nothing more important you can do for your children.

What are the CHARACTERISTICS OF A STRONG PARENT?

A strong parent:

o FEELS AND ACTS IN-CHARGE. The in-charge parent does not cave in to wheedling or whining or the child who insists, “Everybody’s doing it!”

o Provides the three Parenting Vitamin A’s: AFFECTION, ACCEPTANCE, ATTENTION. Affection is easy, we love our kids. Acceptance of WHO your child is, what personality and temperament your child has is a bit trickier but you’re not going to change these basic characteristics so you might as well learn to accept them. Never be so busy that you can’t spend part of every day giving each child your full attention.

o RESPECTS THEIR CHILDREN.

o Gives their children the twin gifts of RESPONSIBILITY and TRUST.

o Learns to COMMUNICATE with their children and how to keep lines of communication open.

o Helps their children acquire COMPETENCIES, CONFIDENCE, lifelong CURIOSITY, and COMPASSION.

o Provides a LEARNING HOME where learning is valued and encouraged.

o Provides a VIOLENCE-FREE HOME (no violence between family members or on TV or computer screens.)

o Teaches VALUES.

o Serves as a BUFFER between the toxic culture out there and their children.

o Always expects the BEST from their children

o Is able to LET GO.
