5 Tips to Empower Your Parenting Skills in the New Year

5 Tips to Empower Your Parenting Skills in the New Year

Parenting Skills in the New Year

As we step into the New Year, we make new promises. As a parent, you may want to know some interesting tips for empowering your parenting skills and continuing to find growth in your parenting.

Make Resolutions for the New Year

Why do people usually create new resolutions for the new year?

Making meaningful resolutions at the beginning of a brand-new year is important. And it is much more essential to accomplish them by the end of the year.

However, parents frequently forget the things they have resolved because of their busy schedules. To avoid this from happening, these should be written down or printed on small flash cards and put where you can always see them. You can also keep them written down by hand in your personal notebook.

Here are some simple suggestions for New Year’s resolutions for parents:

1. Paying attention to your kids
2. A resounding no to False Punishments
3. Parental Patience: Count to 10
4. Keep Your Word
5. Taking care of yourself

Are You “That” Friend? Learn To Accept Imperfection In Others

Are You “That” Friend? Learn To Accept Imperfection In Others

Everyone needs a shoulder to cry on from time to time. When things go wrong, who will listen to you? Or are you that friend who will learn to accept imperfection of others?

Often it’s not who will listen but who is worthy of the privilege to witness your vulnerability. No one is perfect, but not everyone can handle seeing imperfection in others. Could you possibly be the type of friend who has a problem with that?

Are you willing to listen?

There are all types of people in the world and you may know many of them. When it comes to sharing your imperfection with others, it is wise to show discernment. Sharing with the wrong person can be detrimental for you as well as them. It is hard to be vulnerable. Choosing unwisely can make you shy about sharing again. It can also lead to a broken relationship.

The truth is that everyone is not ready to handle all situations. A person who has not yet embraced their imperfect side won’t rise to the occasion to celebrate yours. We have all been that friend who has been less than tolerant. Recognize when you are acting in this way. Let your friend know that maybe you aren’t the one to confide in at this time. Then, grow beyond where you are and learn to be more tolerant.
