When parenting, there are certain obstacles to overcome. It is well-known knowledge to all of us. But the thing is to change the obstacles into the best teachers. It is always so in life. We have to deal with harsh conditions in other to survive (extremely said). The best approach to problems is to treat them right. I mean, we should treat our problems as steps on the ladder. One more step, one more problem solved, one more thing to be proud with. It is so easy. Then, we become good people, then we can finally become good parents. Because, when we are not happy with our lives, we cannot pass the happiness to our kids. It is obvious. Why should we expect our children to be happy if we cannot be happy ourselves. It would be a kind of a hypocrisy. Do you agree?
Do you want to become a father yourself? Or are you already one? Then, follow some simple (or sometimes more difficult) rules and try to make the best of it. You bring up your own children eventually. It is your responsibility to treat them right. When they are wrong, show them the best way to improve. When they are right, consider awarding. It is that easy. I bet that when you were a child, you used to be very happy after getting something from your parents. And on the contrary, when you did something wrong, you would be punished. Of course, the punishment should be made on the basis of some knowledge. We cannot make severe punishments just because we think that it is a good idea. It is not enough to be a good parent.
Gain knowledge in order to become better. And what is important, realize that you already are experienced with some knowledge regarding parenting. Can you remember your childhood? It is a very good way to be a father that you always wanted to have or that you had simply. When your father can be considered as a role model – be the same. If not, do not follow and make same mistakes. It is a matter of understanding certain behavior, certain things that happened or not.
I bet that you want to be a great father. Imagine the best father in the world and be one. Can you do it for your kids? I think that with some efforts, it is easy to be done. Let your children think that they are the richest on the planet. But we do not mean money, do we? They should see the support, they should know that whatever they do, they can come back and see a smile on your face just because of the fact that they are your children. Can you do it for them? Can you be the best father in the universe? You must! That is the point. There is no turning back once you know that you will become father. There is no turning back! And this is the most beautiful thing about it.
