If a dog could keep a diary, there might be great lessons for better parenting that we could learn there

Perhaps the last place that we would look for parenting tips is in the pages of a dog’s diary!

 

But if a dog could keep a diary, there might be great lessons for better parenting that we could learn there. For instance:

 

• Today the home was calm and relaxed and that helped me to feel calm and relaxed.

 

• Today, I was harshly yelled at and it hurt my feelings. I was just doing the best I could.

 

• Today my master took me outside for exercise and that helped me to play calmly and quietly when I returned inside.

 

Each one of these “doggy entries” contain real parent help:

 

  • For children to behave in an orderly way they need to be in calm surroundings.
  • When we react harshly to a behavior we may needlessly hurt the child emotionally.
  • For children to demonstrate orderly conduct they need enough exercise.

Can you think of other parenting tips that can be learned
from an imaginary doggy diary?

What are some of the most valuable tips on
parenting that you have learned?

Without meaning to demean children in any way, there really are worthwhile parenting tips that we can learn from observing our pets, including noticing how happy the feel when we spend pleasant quality time with them.

The powerful success secret of approaching big goals by taking small, unstrained steps is conveyed in the mother quotes that follow.

 

Parenting help for raising children

I tell my child stories about people who have accomplished great things, like climbing to the top of a mountain, and then we talk about the tiny little steps that produced the great result.

1. By degrees equals ease. If I just focus on improving my child’s behavior a little bit at a time, IT WORKS!

 

2. I want to teach my child patience and perseverance, so I attempt to demonstrate those qualities when dealing with his challenging behavior.

 

3. Raising children is a long-term job. If I work too hard at it, out of impatience to produce positive results, I will burn out.

 

4. Parenting is an educational process. My daily experiences with my child are like attending parenting classes that teach me what works and what does not. I need to be patient with myself as I learn my parenting lessons.

Here are two more mother quotes that pertain to teaching children to succeed one little step at a time:

2. I tell my child stories about people who have accomplished great things, like climbing to the top of a mountain, and then we talk about the tiny little steps that produced the great result.
