Despite the beauty, depth, and highness of maternal feelings, it remains a difficult and arduous task for the mother to raise her children in good health and instill the best moral values inside them and prepare them to be active in society.
And of course, every mother strives to be perfect and fit for her children, family, and everyone around her. But what is the best way to be a perfect mother?
Today we offer you a set of tips and methods that can help you to be a perfect and successful mother:
All studies and experiences have proven that love is the best method of education. It is what will make your child respect, believe, and listen to you. In addition to the constant encouragement and support for every good behavior, show your respect and appreciation for his talents and love for him at all times.
Listen to your child’s conversations and dreams. Give him the necessary attention to everything he says, and given the changing mood and personality of the child in each stage you must understand, and contain these changes by listening to him and talking to him. Be an honest listener to your child, no matter how silly his talk is, so you can find a distinct way of speaking and understanding in ways that are appropriate to his mind and way of thinking.
You need to know that when setting a firm principle for dealing with a child, you should stick to it and not give in. For example, if there is any change in your child’s sleep date one day, you must explain to him that the reason why you ignore his sleep date is a specific occasion or an emergency circumstance and that he has to go back and adhere to the deadline again. And if the child forces you by screaming and crying to abandon one of the rules, you should not abandon them permanently, but rather adhere to the rule again. This flexibility is followed by children under the age of 5 years, until they control their desires, and it is difficult for them to have a dialogue, while after five years, the child can understand more.
You have to be constantly informed and aware of all the changes of the child, physical and psychological fluctuations in each stage of the age and search for the correct information from reliable and specialized sources such as doctors and experts where other sources can provide you with advice and incorrect information.
Surely raising children, especially in the early years, will make you feel tired. Therefore, you must make sure you get adequate rest so that you do not feel angry and upset as a result of your child’s many requests. Because the child can translate this anger from you, this matter may be reflected in his personality.
Be confident of yourself, your capabilities, and your child as well, and you’ll be sure that you are doing the right thing. Follow these suggestions and you’ll feel that you are worthy of this task despite its difficulty and that you will perform it to the fullest and will reap its fruits in the future.
