There is more to parenting than just giving your child anything he or she wants at any moment during the day.

Parenting is the most difficult job in the world, but it is also the most rewarding. You become responsible for another human being when you become a parent. You get to watch them and help them grow and learn. However, parenting can be trying at times, so here are 5 parenting tips to help you through.


You may not be the most patient person in the world. Maybe you have been known for being impatient. That’s okay. Patience can be learned. Slow down and enjoy life. Try to relax and be in the moment. Meditation can help you with this.

Being in the moment helps you become more patient, and reduces your stress levels. When you find yourself dwelling on the future (even if it’s 2 minutes from now), stop yourself and focus on the now.

Your child grows and learns quickly, but it may not seem that way when you are in the middle of it. So, when a tantrum starts take a deep breath. This too shall pass. When she looks at you and tells you she loves you be in the moment completely.


You should never be doing all of the work and cleaning up after your child. Have them pitch in. They will learn responsibility and accomplishment while you will get a little break in everything you have to do every day. Even a toddler can pick up her own toys when the day is over.


It’s important to know that there are others in the same situation you are. Parenting can feel lonely at times. Join a local parenting group or have play dates with a neighbor and his or her child. Talk about the week’s parenting trials and triumphs.


Hire a babysitter if you have to so you can take care of yourself. Be at your best so your child can enjoy you. Use nap and school times for you time. Take a relaxing bath, go for a walk, or watch a new movie. You also need to take care of yourself on a more regular basis. That means eating well (fruits, veggies, nuts, meats, and fish), exercising regularly (at least three times a week for 30 minutes), and taking vitamin supplements.


Whether she’s 2 or 12 she needs you. Make time to spend with your child every day. It doesn’t have to be something extravagant. You could read to her, watch a movie together, go for a walk together, or just sit and talk. Connect with your child and instill trust in her while allowing her to do the same.

Use these parenting tips to help you on your journey. Enjoy your time being a parent!
