Learning the Parenting Behavior

Before dwelling so much into parenting I would like also to add here, on how we learn to be a parent. Where did we get the learning to be a parent? There are a lot of books that tells so much about parenting and family and magazine that will lead you the in and out of parenting.

As far as I know, we tend to parent the way we were parented. We are most likely the same with our parents if we are not aware of this. But if we are fully aware we apt to choose methods that we like to apply, then we just ignore things that we do not like to use. This is very critical, for you become aware about your parenting styles; we sometimes need someone to tell us about it.

Then we can learn by watching other parents and talking with friends about their experiences. From them you can learn something new and you can choose to apply it, it may not be effective as it is effective to others but at least you will have an idea you will just give it some twist to make it more effective for your children.

We can also learn by doing the trial and error, this is the most common thing happen as a first time parent. Just like me, I tend to do trial and error when I gave birth to my son. Its fun but its rewarding sometimes and always remembers what is the effective way for your children. Always remember this being a parent there is no perfect strategies you may combine with other styles and strategies but 1 strategy alone is not enough.
