The parenting advice you would give to others is to foster resilience in your child. It's not always easy to watch your children struggle or fail, but in the face of obstacle, they build character, resilience, and a strong sense of what they're capable of. If you could pass any bit of advice along to others, it's to let your kids make mistakes and build strength.
Always Cheer Them On
The parenting advice that you would give to others is to always cheer your children on! Sometimes all kids need is to feel like someone is in their corner. Cheering on your children through their triumphs and failures gives them the support they need to achieve whatever they put their minds to.
The parenting advice you would give to others is to encourage their children to read. Reading is one of the easiest ways to foster imagination in a child. Not only will they develop strong reading and language skills, but they'll gain a love of knowledge. Creating an avid reader benefits the kids and society as a whole.
Let Your Kids Be Kids
The parenting advice you would give to others is to let kids be kids. In the modern age, it seems as if we're forcing children to grow up and abandon childhood sooner than ever. It's important for kids to have a period of time in which they can play, imagine, and enjoy the freedom of becoming whatever it is they are meant to be.
The parenting advice you would give to others is to communicate honestly with children! While many parents think they're doing their kids a favor by keeping them from the truth, what they're really doing is shielding them from understanding the world as it truly is.
