Teach Your Child To Realize the Responsibilities of a Hero

By Marilyn Cramer   |  Monday, March 25th, 2013

A hero is somebody who is selfless, who is generous in spirit, who just tries to give back as much as possible and help people. A hero to me is someone who saves people and who really deeply cares.
~ Debi Mazar

A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is brave five minutes longer. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.
~ Bob Dylan

 

A hero always choses to do the right thing. He does not hesitate to help someone even in his difficult times.

A hero has faced it all: he need not be undefeated, but he must be undaunted.
~ Andrew Bernstein

A hero is a man who does what he can. ~ Romain Rolland

A hero is willing to work hard. He is brave. He is kind.

We all want to be a hero because we don’t want to let our feet stop with fear. The sense of being a hero gives us courage to fight fear not for ourselves but for others as well.

Have Fun Raising Children

By Noah Brown   |  Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Of course, your kids still need to have a strong parent to help teach them right from wrong, dangerous and safe as well as good and bad but there should also be fun in your child parent relations too. Children tend to drown out negative comments, if they occur too often. Kids are more apt to listen to their parents if they can actually enjoy spending time with them.

Bonding time makes parenting kids much easier because the children are more relaxed with their parents.

Parenting kids is easier if you let yourself have fun and enjoy spending time with them

Remember, there are no cell phones, laptops or handheld video games while camping. Older parents might want to use an air mattress while younger ones might want to “rough it” by sleeping on the ground. The choice is yours as long as you spend the time together, all will be great!

Parenting Advice to Curb the Habit of Stealing in Kids

By Noah Brown   |  Sunday, November 25th, 2012

Generally children of 5 to 6 years begin to develop conscience at that stage and at times they find it tough to resist their temptation to steal something that they want.

Strictly make your child understand that stealing is wrong and you would not forgive it.

Many children steal because they think that there is nothing wrong about it. Some steal because they want to get attention.

Screaming or slapping your child won’t solve the problem. You need to figure out the root cause and nip it in the bud.

Parenting Wisdom For Developing Your Child’s Leadership

By Bob Lancer   |  Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

 

Give your kids all the freedom to control themselves that you can, but not too much.  Giving them enough freedom to find their own way develops their sense of who they really are and what they really want to do.  This prepares them to be able to find their own authentic path to fulfillment and success in adulthood.

Parenting Help For Child Development

Do not ask that your kids live up to your expectations. Let your kids be who they are, and your expectations will be in breathless pursuit. ~ Robert Brault

 

It develops the child’s self-leadership power.

 

But of course, avoid giving kids too much responsibility for themselves.  You need to closely monitor your child to recognize when you need to intervene and establish boundaries.

 

If you give a child more freedom than he or she can responsibly handle, the child oversteps appropriate behavior boundaries and develops habitual behavior problems.

 

And when you do step in, avoid disciplining children using behaviors you don’t want them to copy, because nature programs children to imitate the behaviors that they witness and receive.

 

This means that yelling at children teaches them to yell.  Hitting children teaches them to hit.  Harshly criticizing and complaining to kids teaches them to display those negative speech patterns.

 

Remember this child behavior principle: How you react to not getting your way with your kids teaches your kids how to react when they don’t get their way.

 

Our responsibility as parents is to prepare our children to intelligently and constructively handle NOT getting their way.  This means responding to not getting their way in a way that really works for them, in a way that helps them to get your way in time.

 

This amounts to teaching kids the wise leadership skill of accountability.

 

Here is how that skill works:  Rather than blowing their top and blaming others when they do not like what happens, wise leaders accept responsibility for recognizing what they have done that led to what is happening, and how they can change to improve their results.

 

As you apply this parenting wisdom for developing leadership skill in your child, your child will demonstrate improved child behavior and you will not have to work as hard to keep your child’s conduct on a positive track.

Making friends plays a vital role in shaping social and emotional behavior of your children.

Encourage your children to share their experiences

Making friends plays a vital role in shaping social and emotional behavior of your children.

If your child is introvert and hesitates in building and developing friendships at school and play, it is a time for you to help and motivate your child to make friends.

Encourage Your Child For Fair Play

By Noah Brown   |  Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

The first lessons begin at home, from parents, by observing and following people who are in the immediate environment.

Whatever a child learns in his childhood, it leaves a permanent impression on his memory.

“Victory isn’t defined by wins or losses. It is defined by effort. If you can truthfully say, ‘I did the best I could, I gave everything I had,’ then you’re a winner.”
– Wolfgang Schadler

Hence, parents need to be doubly careful when raising children on what kind of a home environment they are providing their children.

Motivated Kids Can Make A Big Difference

6-Year-Old Raises $10K To Help Ailing Dad

 

Positive Parenting Raises Motivated Kids

A 6-year-old boy from Gladewater, Texas has done what most adults would not be able to do. Drew Cox, 6, raised $10,000 at a lemonade stand to help his father Randy Cox who had been diagnosed with Seminoma cancer three months ago.

 

Setting an inspiring example of what a caring child can do, Drew set up a lemonade stall on Walnut Street, Saturday, April 14, to help raise funds for his father’s medical bills. As the word spread about this little boy’s brave effort, cars and people queued up to support his cause by buying a cup of lemonade for 25 cents. By the end of the day, the earnings had reached a whopping $10,000.

 

The beautiful child-parent relationship between this ailing father and his doting son was evident in Drew’s words about his father. “He is so important to me. We like to play with each other. Lots of times we like to play games,” Drew said on KLTV.

 

Drew’s feat is reminiscent of the 4-year-old Alexandra “Alex” Scott, who, battling with a form of childhood cancer – neuroblastoma since before her first birthday, had decided to set up a lemonade stand to raise money for her doctors to help find a cure for all kids with cancer.

 

“Alex was just four-years-old when she asked my wife if she could hold a lemonade stand when she was released from the hospital. When asked what she wanted to do with the money, Alex said she wasn’t keeping it, but instead giving it to her doctors to help find a cure for all kids with cancer. And so, our lemonade crusade began,” writes Jay Scott, Alex’s father and Co-Executive Director, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, in Huffingtonpost.com.

 

Positive Parenting Techniques

Parenting kids is also about inspiring children to do their bit to make the world a better place

Alex, with the help of volunteers across the country raised over $1 million in her lifetime (she passed away in 2004). But her legacy was carried on by parents who have raised over $50 million toward finding a cure for cancer.

 

Motivated kids set precedents which even adults may find hard to match. It is essential for parents to instill this wisdom in children that they too can make a difference.

 

When you help develop in your child the vision to see beyond his own self and the ability to think for others’ welfare, you motivate your child to grow as a caring, helpful, kind and compassionate human being.

 

Parenting kids is not only about making sure they have the good things of life. It’s about inspiring children to do their bit to make the world a better place.

Parenting Classes For Raising Happy Children

Create happier times with your kids to deepen and strengthen family bonding.

 

At one of my recent parenting classes, I discussed the need for a deep heart-connection in the parent-child relationship.

 

“As we nurture children emotionally,” I explained,“their behavior expresses more loving kindness and healthy self-esteem than when kids feel emotionally deprived.”

 

A parent in the class raised her hand and posed this common parenting problem:  “In today’s world, when both parents need to work full time, and jobs often demand more than the old, standard 40 hours a week, we’re not able to give our kids the quality time they need.”

 

My response to that addressed the creative power and responsibility of every one of us:

 

“Your circumstances are a product of your own creation.  You have the power to create the life-balance to support the emotional development of your child.

 

“I know parents who have made huge financial sacrifices to be able to provide their children with all the quality time their kids need.

 

Raising Happy Children

“You empower yourself to succeed relative any goal by seeing yourself as the creator of your circumstances, not as a victim of your circumstances.

“Others found creative ways to maintain a high income while meeting the emotional needs of their children.

 

“You empower yourself to succeed relative any goal by seeing yourself as the creator of your circumstances, not as a victim of your circumstances.

 

“Though you may not know what you can do right now to improve the balance of your life, begin by clearly defining life-balance as your goal and commit to making it happen.

 

“In the meantime, if you cannot increase the quantity of time you spend with your kids, improve the quality of the precious time that you do have with them.

 

“Practice connecting with your children in a more conscious and loving way when you are together. Create happier times with your kids to deepen and strengthen family bonding.”

 

“Turn every moment you spend with your daughter into a kind of parenting class by closely observing her, in order to improve your understanding of your child. This is how to better meet your child’s need for a deep heart-connection in the parent-child relationship

Inspiration and kids

Children display more respectful compliance, more willing cooperation, when they sense our happy feelings

Inspiration and kids go quite well together.

When you feel inspired while interacting with your children, you will achieve better results than when you feel frustrated, impatient or overwhelmed.

This is because children pick up on how we feel, including our feeling of positive motivation.

Children display more respectful compliance, more willing cooperation, when they sense our happy feelings.

This is why it makes sense to re-train our response pattern when our children seem most difficult.

I’ve found that when I respond with inspiration, my kids are easier to deal with.

For instance, while my toddler begged me to play with him, but I had to complete a chore, instead of reacting with exasperation I tried responding with inspiration.

In an enthusiastic tone I said, “Hey, this is great.  You are getting to learn how to wait!”

I noticed that his mood of whiney impatience shifted instantly.  The look on his face turned from cranky to relaxed.

Responding with positive feelings of motivation with our children not only has a positive impact on their behavior. For me, it makes parenting more enjoyable.

Try this exercise.

For one entire day, notice when you begin to feel the slightest trace of stress, frustration, annoyance or irritation with your children.

The moment you begin to feel yourself slipping into that unpleasant reaction, try shifting into a state of positive motivation with your children.

You might do this by simply pretending that you are doing something you love, and remember how that feels.

Contribute to other parents’ Wisdom with Kids by sharing
the results of this exercise in this blog.

With daily, deliberate practice I have found that I experience more inspiration with my kids on a consistent basis, and that inspires them to behave more delightfully.
