First I want to say thank you to all of you who have been following my blogs, taking the time out to read my post and for your comments.  I would like you to know that I really do appreciate it.  

For the next couple of posts my focus will be on parenting and I would appreciate your thoughts on the subject.

Parenting

How many of us can say we are great parents?  Well maybe most of us will be modest and say that we do try.  To simply say parenting is not an easy job, is an understatement.  It really is not and like any other job it has its good days and bad.  Parenting skills are learned, we are not born with them.  You cannot just walk into a book shop, purchase a book on parenting, try to adapt to the written words and become a great parent.  It doesn’t happen that way.

Each child is an individual with his or her own special needs that has to be met.   Each child has his or her own likes and dislikes and rightly so even if they are twins, they have different personalities.  The key role of parents therefore is to get to know your child or children as individuals.  In the same way each pregnancy for a woman is different; in the same way no two children are going to be exactly alike.

One of the most important thing we as parents have to do is to have an open line of communication with our children from the moment they start learning to talk.  I know it isn’t always easy and sometimes we feel we just don’t have the time but we also have to learn to be better listeners.  Encourage them to express their feelings,.  Listen to their chatter even if it doesn’t make any sense!
