Parenting a Better Child

"To be in your children's memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today."
—Unknown

The primary custodian in parenting is the biological parent(s) of the child in question, although others may be an older sibling, a grandparent, a legal guardian, aunt, uncle or other family member, or a family friend. Governments and society may have a role in child-rearing as well. In many cases, orphaned or abandoned children receive parental care from non-parent blood relations. Others may be adopted, raised in foster care, or placed in an orphanage. Parenting skills vary, and a parent with good parenting skills may be referred to as a good parent.



A parenting practice is a specific behaviour that a parent uses in raising a child. For example, a common parent practice intended to promote academic success is reading books to the child. Storytelling is an important parenting practice for children in many Indigenous American communities.

A parent's relationship with his or her child will be reflected in the child's actions -- including child behaviour problems, someone said "If you don't have a good relationship with your child, they're not going to listen to you. Think how you relate to other adults. If you have a good relationship with them, you tend to trust them more, listen to their opinions, and agree with them. If it's someone we just don't like, we will ignore their opinion."
A major solution to our defective societies is excellent parenting in which the following parenting errors are avoided:
  • Raising the child we want, not the child we have
  • Idolising our children
  • Indulging their excesses
  • Exposing them too early to the social media
  • Relegating their care and training to house help
  • Overloaded daily schedule
  • Not Limiting Screen Time
  • Pandering on food choice
  • Engaging in competitive parenting
  • Spanking Children at an advanced stage
  • Excessive protectiveness
  • Withholding positive incentives
  • Judging other parents — and their kids
  • Saying the right thing to our children and doing the wrong thing
  • Enforcing religious activities without proper engagement
  • Encouraging age-unsuitable behaviour.
  • Applying public ridicule, screaming or threats as means of reprimand
  • Nagging as a parent.
  • And lastly, domestic violence.
Defective parenting will produce a child with defective behaviour, values and ultimately grow to become a defective adult. “By their fruit you shall know them”.

Someone said if you bungle raising your children, I don't think whatever else you do matters very much.
