Raising Children: What's the secret?

Raising healthy and emotionally-sound children isn't as easy as you might think, and most young couples have really no idea of what they are getting into when they first get married. In fact, while babies and young children require time, older children in their teenage years and even into adulthood need just as much, and sometimes more, time and understanding.

Therefore, what do you think are the keys to raising children in our day and age? What did your parents do to raise you that worked or didn't work? Share your ideas. You can also listen of an activity on my Website on this topic at:

Raising children is very hard for parents and raising them successfully is more difficult.

Taking care for babies needs the time, the love and the effort. Of course, raising them requires us some skills and experiences. The books and old poeple like our grand parents can help us to become better parents.

Otherwise, there is a completely difference in feeding the older children as compared with babies. For older children, it is so necessary to catch up their psychology. They are growing up, so they want us not only to be their parents but also as their friends to share with them and give apropriate advices to them.

Unfortunately, my parents could not be beside me frequently to share with me at the time I had some troubles. However, I remember that when I was wrong my parents purnished me strictly by cane. I think that worked well to me because I did not dare to make mistakes any more.

However, everything is changing now. It is better to raise our children by the understanding, the passion and of course, by the love of parents. That is more efficient in bringing up successfully children.

Raising children today can be very hard for parents. To deal well with this situation is necessary a lot of compassion and love to do the best.

Firstly, our world nowadays is so dangerous that raise a child is becoming more difficult to parents because they lived in another time when so many precautions that child has today were not necessary for them at this time.

In addition, today many parents work all day long and do not have time to know better their children and thus do not participate to their lives. For me this situation is very bad and can damage the process of education of this child.

To illustrate, in my chilhood my parents were always with me. My mom worked in my school and she participated of my life during this time helping me to study and giving a lot of attention.

To sum up, I think there is no secret to raise children today. So, the principal thing to do is always have attention and give them support to be healthy and happy.

Raising children could be easier if we parents had more communication with our kids. Today is cellphone, internet, TV and many others stuffs, so present in many homes that everyone, kids and parents, are very stressed to get information from these lines and/or to be social online, istead to a create a real family enviroment. I think we adults must work hard to change this trend just now, so our kids can be better parents to our grandchildren and so on. The most (not everyone) of antagonistic, unsociable and violent people hadn't a good relation to their parents. So lets us do the world safer and more pleasant for all!

Love is the way. It could sound as the usual answer..But,sooner or later, the dark side of everybody appears. Suddenly, we lose the control and love -patience and understanding- can solve the situation. If not..Kisses

I think that all times game is the principal factor to work with children. In the game you can listen and accompained children. Share time in different spare activities make that children feel confident and with the sensation of be no alone.

In my case my parents were divorced when I was born, but that was not a difficulty they did their best to raise me and my little brother, even whit them living in separate houses we both had the best childhood we could imagine.

They have some rules and parental control but it was so nice growing up with them as our parents. Even with them divorced it was a very typical way to raised kids, they remain friends after the divorce so they did their bestto raised us.
