Parenting is one of the most rewarding things you can do.
There are many different ways to raise a child. There are no rules, but experience and research show that children are more likely to grow into happy, friendly, motivated adults if their parent/s give them lots of love and praise.
Children need their parent/s to listen to them and be sensitive to their needs and views. They want people who care for them to support each other, regardless of the living situation. They want you to guide them, and have limits that are fair and suit their age. You can give them choices within reasonable limits.
There’s a lot you can do to help develop your child into happy healthy child.
