India Today - - PARENTING -

BE A CON­FI­DANTE, NOT A FRIEND Don’t try to be your child’s friend but try and be their con­fi­dante in­stead. That way you’ll be the first per­son they’ll come to when they are in any kind of trou­ble. TOUCH BASE Keep all chan­nels of com­mu­ni­ca­tion open be­tween you and your child. AL­WAYS AT HAND Make sure you let your child know that you’re ac­ces­si­ble for all their needs how­ever mi­nor or ma­jor. HAVE FUN TO­GETHER Spend qual­ity time with your chil­dren. Do fun stuff that you en­joy, whether its watch­ing a favourite sit­com or vis­it­ing a park. EN­COUR­AGE IN­DI­VID­U­AL­ITY Treat chil­dren as in­de­pen­dent hu­man be­ings. The more you spoil them, the more de­pen­dent they’ll grow up to be.
