Give time to your kids:
An adult has so many things to do and many people to meet every day but a child has his/her world with some limited tasks and few people. As a parent, you must give enough time to your kids so they feel that they are not alone. Loneliness leads a child to uncertainty. Many parents find it the most beautiful time if they can pass time with their kids. If you are a working mom or dad, you can arrange a special night at every weekend.
Be a good teacher:
You are the first and the best teacher for your children. You need to guide him/her to a secure life. Be a role model to your kids. Young children learn a lot from their parents. Sometimes kids start following their parents subconsciously. So you should do good things in front of your kids and avoid bad habits to teach them what is right and what is wrong. You are continuously being watched by your kids so you can’t blame him/her for any misdeed that you did earlier. You must rectify your mistakes immediately so that he/she can learn from you.
Love your kids unconditionally:
Parents’ love for their children must be unconditional. Make sure your kids feel that your love is unconditional and natural. You should express your love to your kids so that they would understand and reciprocate it in the same manner. A mother’s or father’s ample love for her/his child is inestimable.
Support your child:
A parent must support his/her child for building their confidence. Your support and care will help your child to develop the social and emotional skills they need to lead a happy, healthy and prosperous life. Your child should get enough support when he or she is in anxiety, stress, or depression.
Don’t compare your child with other kids:
Don’t compare your child with the other kids of his/her age or class. You must keep in mind that every child is different. Parents often do this mistake. They compare their children with others which gives a very low feeling to the kids.
A disciplined life is well-desired and loved by all. As parents, you have a vital role to play to teach your kids discipline, time management, and so on. Try to maintain a disciplined routine that will be adopted by your kids. Family is the best place to learn discipline and manners.
Talk more to your kids:

Those kids are lucky whose parents behave like friends with them. Parents and children should develop a very friendly relationship for happy family life. Such relation will help to develop a better understanding between you and your kid. Don’t act as if you are his/her boss or ruler. You must give some space to them for a healthy relationship.
