Loving your child is the basic key in order to achieve effective parenting. Basically providing a child’s needs is only one of the many ways to express your love. The breakdown of responsibility will be uncovered here. For instance, a mother should be the one who takes care of the children inside their home, meaning the task of feeding, educating and protecting them false with their mother. The father on the other hand will be the one who works full time to gather necessary resources to buy food and clothing of his family. It is the father who should keep the mother and children safe all the time. A father is physically strong so it is proper to assign him tasks that involve brute force or strength.
Another way to be effective parents is to manage the finances of the family. A man should be the one who has a full time job and give his salary to his wife, for the wife should be the one who manage the finances. It means that the task of a wife aside from taking care of children is to budget the family’s finances. There is another arrangement in the family wherein a woman has its career full time. Careers come and go but to assume the responsibility of a mother is much higher calling. A woman can work on her career later on but for the mean time the most important task is to be an effective mother to a child who needs care, love and nurture. Giving up one’s career is difficult but if the replacement of the said career is much meaningful then it’s worth the risk.
Parenting stage comes ones or twice in a lifetime so make sure to savor each moment that you are doing it. For career woman, they can continue their work on the later part of their life just as their child could stand on their own. Also for father, though their responsibility is to provide for the family’s needs they should not forget to experience on how being a father could bring happiness and joy. Playing with your child is one way of eliminating work related pressures and stress. This action will help a child to be more attached to his or her father rather than the mother alone. The affection of a child should be directed for both parents not for the mother or father only.
