Proper Parenting and Its Importance

Proper Parenting and Why it is Important
Parenting is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. Parents share a heartfelt relationship with their children; they also serve as healthy role models. Proper parenting means learning successful parenting skills. There are many different ways parents can show that they are properly raising their children, but one of the most important aspects of proper parenting is showing good judgment.   Proper parenting can also mean being able to provide emotional security and guidance for children which will help them in their adulthood.
Proper parenting skills start with good judgment. Judgment develops from experience. Good judgment develops from bad experiences. People in general aren’t born making wise decisions, it is the bad decisions a person makes which teaches them what to do and what not to do. Parents have to know when to say no their children and when to give in to their wants. When you make good choices your children see this and will learn to make good judgments on their own.
Developing a child’s emotional security is another important aspect of proper parenting. Emotional security starts at birth and continues into adulthood. Children learn to feel secure or insecure depending on the relationships they have with their parents or caregivers. Emotional security is psychological in a sense. When a child feels insecure he or she will regress by doing things they’ve outgrown such as wetting the bed, sucking their thumb, or hugging a bear or pillow pretending it is a person. Children who feel secure grow up to be very sociable with high self-esteem and they adapt well in society. The feeling of safety and security should come from a mother and father, and not objects such as a bear or blanket.
