Learn these positive parenting tips,
for raising successful children.

Having some positive parenting tips you can use will be quite handy when raising children. One thing we must understand is having a detailed parenting plan is much more efficient in response to disciplining children, than just using tips.

We also need to keep in mind that as the age of our children changes our parenting strategies will need to be adjusted in response to (1) - The personality of the child and (2) - The environment and the influence the child is exposed to.

On this page we will be given you 10 practical positive parenting tips you can use to help motivate your children into being productive and how to achieve goals. 1. Help your child realize that honest effort will almost always pay off greatly. Honest effort means using time productively and it is necessary to learn how to use time productively. Remember “honesty is the best policy.”

2. Try and help your child understand the concept of cause-and-effect. Help them to understand the direct relationships between his or her own actions and obtaining desired benefits

3. Try hard not to motivate your child by saying things like "This is easy or simple!" Or even "Anyone can do this!" Instead say something like, "You can do it, if you work at it consistently.

This next tip is one of the most important out of all of our positive parenting tips. I say this because we as parents usually fall in to this habit because we think it is the right thing.

4. Understand that your child is likely to look at life differently than you (no matter how wonderful your values are), and you can help motivate your child only to the extent that you can see life from his or her perspective.

5. Avoid using words like, "You're not trying!" Instead, say, "Is there anything you can focus on to help improve your performance?" Then help your child find ways to spend additional time productively.

6. Encourage your child to set individual as well as group goals. Make them realize that contributing to the success of a group is just as worthwhile goal as individual achievement.

We here at parenting with positive thinking believes that each child should be taught to respect their peers and never pulls down another self-esteem. This statement makes our next two positive parenting tips very important.

7. Assist your child in setting competitive goals; however avoid them of not relying on the failure of other children in order to feel successful. Only encourage competition with his or her own past performance.

8. Avoid comparing family members or siblings with one another. This could create a negative environment among family members. Also remember to focus on these last two tips;

9. When your child is acting very lethargic, bored, indifference, or unconcerned about something in school, take steps immediately to keep them interested.

10. When your child is excessively excited or anxious about something in school, take immediate steps to lower physiological arousal keeping them calm and focused.

Along with these positive parenting tips you need to focus as much as possible on achieving success as opposed to avoiding failure, whilst having realistic, positive expectations for your child.

We must remember that communication with our children using positive language is imperative and compliment these tips.

I will end with this fitting quote “Parents need to fill a child's bucket of self-esteem so high that the rest of the world can't poke enough holes to drain it dry.”- Alvin Price
