Being good parents, especially a mother, is difficult. If you are a working woman, it seems all the more difficult to become a good parent. Needless to say, bringing up a child is difficult,especially during the first 4-5 years. But despite the hardship this is the best time to nurture your child. It must be said that bringing up a child successfully is the joint responsibility of both the parents. You can learn it from Mrs. Sudha Murthy, Chairperson of Infosys Foundation and an accomplished writer. Being a working woman herself she has brought up her two daughters successfully. Admittedly, she has got the help of her husband, Mr. Narayan Murthy. Here are few tips about parenting that you can learn from Mrs. Sudha Murthy.
Setting Up an Example
You need to be an example for your children. Children are like sponge; they pick up habits by observing their parents. So, you must not do anything that you don’t want your child to pick up as a habit.
Live a Gadget Free Life
If you are always looking at your mobile or doing something or the other in the laptop your child would learn the same. If you want your children to pick up the habit of reading books, you must yourself read books at home.
Don’t Tell a Lie
If you are yourself telling lies, your children will definitely pick up the habit. So, make it a point that you don’t tell any lies, especially in front of your children.
Practice Simple Living Habits
A common man has to stand in a queue for everything. So, make it a habit to stand in a queue for everything and don’t try to influence your way to acquire goodies. Let your children learn that the only way to get something from a store or counter is to stand in a queue and wait for their turn.
There is no doubt that parenting is difficult, especially for working women. However, if you have the helping hand of your husband and follow the tips given by Mrs. Sudha Murthy, you can become successful parents.
