How Do I Help My Child Make The Right Choices. Do you want to make sure that your child stays on the right path? If so then it all starts with you. It’s important that you provide your child a good role model that he and she can model. They look up
to you and they pay attention to everything you say and do that’s why it’s important that your words and behaviors be consistent, be congruent, make it so that they look up to you so that they want to be like you when they grow up.
It’s also a good idea for you to get to know your kids friends. I say this because many times when a kid goes astray and starts getting into all kinds of problems, it all started with a friend that had all kinds of issues at school or maybe at home maybe both, so make sure that you know who your kids are hanging around.
I know that many times we get so busy that it’s hard sometimes, but the only way to be a good parent is to make the time to be with our kids, make the time to get to know them, to give them that guidance and that direction that they need.
You know they don’t realize that they need it but they do and your role isn’t to be your kids best friend, no, your role is that of a parent. When they get older and they’re living a life on their own then you can be like a best friend but for now you’re the parent.
Engage with your kids in good conversation. Find out what their interests are. Tell them your thoughts on certain topics. In doing so you build this bond and you make it so that there’s this connection between you and your child that is stronger than anything that some outsider might have with them.
This is important because I found that many times children tend to be highly suggestible, this includes teenagers. They don’t realize it but their minds are really open to all of the things around them. That’s why it’s important that your thoughts and values take precedence over all the stuff out there, because let’s be honest there’s a lot of crap out there. Well, I hope this input helps.
