Many parents wonder if their ways are right or wrong, if they are doing a good job, and wonder: “How can I be a good parent?”
Well, you should never punish your child. They are only young, they do not know what is right, and sometimes it is not their fault. Sometimes something happened, and they are only reacting to a problem. Is it their fault? No. Either way, you should never punish your child.
You also should make sure they are comfortable. If they complain that they are upset or troubled, they are not being “whiny” or “silly” or “ungrateful.” They have needs you must tend to.
I hope you learned a bit about parenting!
