5 Things to avoid in your child's presence


Kids are fast learners than you can think. Whatever you do or speak gets imprinted on their minds and you can soon find them doing or saying the same. Scary, no? There are certain things which you would not like them to learn and do. For that you will have to avoid the following things in your child's presence:

Yelling at each other


Losing your temper and yelling at each other is certainly a bad example for kids. Try to maintain your composure even in adverse situations. That ways your kid will also learn to handle his emotions and situations calmly.


Acting sarcastically

Making fun of somebody or letting someone down may not go down well with your kid. Your kids have high regard for you and the only way to retain that respect is through respectful behaviour for others. Choose your words carefully and act in the way you expect from others.

Think before you utter your next fib

Fibs may be entertaining for you but in long run you are teaching your kids that telling lies is okay. So be honest and genuine as far as possible in front of your kids

Hooked to internet
                               


Too much online connection may result in disconnection with your own kids. Moreover, you need to set a good example in front of your kids by way of spending quality time with them both indoors and outdoors.

Using shameful words in front of kids

If you want your child not to use particular words then you need to check yourself first while talking to someone over phone or arguing with the neighbour and other situations. The kids pick these words fast and may become a part of their habit.

Thank you so much

Whenever your kid follows your guidelines, completes the allotted task or modifies his ways then saying " thank you" is the best way to show your appreciation and gratitude. Needless to say, the child will himself imbibe this value in his life.

Please


Yes, parents need to say" please" to kids. Your polite response will have far reaching positive impact on children than any other way such as yelling which leads to nowhere.


Sorry

Be prompt to say sorry to your child whenever you feel you are not able to fulfill your promise or you have committed a mistake. It brings you closer to your kid and sets a good example of ideal behaviour for your child. Its a symbol of strength and not weakness of your personality.
