Tips on becoming that Ideal Parent

I’m relatively new to parenting as you know, so I have been reading lots of different articles on how to become the ideal parent. Baby girl is 7 months old and we have now started to use the word ‘no’ with her to start introducing those boundaries. When you say no to her she will stop what ever she’s doing and look up. I feel as if she is listening.

Growing up my mum and dad taught us all about good manners and to be polite. It doesn’t cost anything to be polite.

Here are some good manners to teach your kids.

Simple phrases for young kids to start learning.

    Some great messages here. I’ve always tried to reinforce with my three the importance of being polite and kind and treating other people how you would like to be treated. I’m a great believer in love above everything else; even when things aren’t going well, a little love goes a long way. This is something I’m trying to keep in mind when my thirteen year old is testing the boundaries; at the end of the day, he still wants to come have a cuddle on the sofa x

    What a fab infographic – I notice with my stepson’s friends that some have just forgotten basic manners and it’s such a shame! I also believe that positive parenting works best for us xx
