Being a parent would for sure put you through a lot of challenges and difficulties to experience in the long run. Laziness is certainly not an option you could take, as the sole responsibility of a parent is to make sure that their kid is doing well in their own endeavours. This is probably one reason as to why a number of parents out there are subscribed to those parenting guides that they are seemingly hooked on in their own accord. Even the simple aspects that you go through in life would need to have its own changes in tow to make sure that you are providing a good environment for your child to grow and nurture in. Sometimes, not being able to trust their own terms may put some parents at an uneasy state which leads them to venture themselves unto the idea of using such manuals or everyday tips to ease them of their worries. Otherwise, raising your child through pure instinct would also provide you some much needed leverage that you could very much take in as a parent at the end of the day.
Not to add to the problem though, but it is a fact to say that both new batch of parents and children in every generation would have their own different challenges to experience in their very own terms. To you, it may seem to go bad every single time that a new generation arrives, but in hindsight, this actually provides a very much good platform for you to live by to make sure that each new batch of parents and children would be better than that of their predecessors. One good tip that would for sure put you in good graces as a parent is to make sure that your child is well-balanced in the manners of putting the right limitations that you could put unto them, whilst still having the right space for them to grow in their own terms and that whatever age they may be, it is best for them to go with whatever life brings them to lean towards on. Never let your kid grow too soon for their own good, as that may not put them in good terms with how their childhood went in the near future. Make sure that you are letting them be their own person, while on a side note, being low-key watchful to make sure that they would not put themselves into any trouble that may endanger their own life in the long run. Make them aspire for their own dream to make sure that you are able to nurture their ambitions in the process. Do not always shadow yourself in the steps of your own dreams for your child, as at the end of the day, they are the ones that are going to make a choice that they need to live by.
