Iknow it s a cliché, but it really
is true: parenting doesn t come
with a manual. We fumble
around and make mistakes. In
hindsight, I wish I had had
someone to turn to---someone
who would have given me advice
and supported the decisions I
made as a parent.
I know that life would have
been a lot easier for me if I had
been better prepared for some of
those unexpected challenges.
Here are ten of the most
invaluable lessons I learned while
raising my children.
1. Never allow children to
play adults against each other.
Children learn to play the game
of chess using the adults in their
life as pawns. They learn quite
early how to play one parent
against the other and when they
go to school, they figure out how
to play parents against teachers.
If you buy into that behaviour
and don t stick your ground
demanding respect for adults in
charge, then you re buying a
whole lot of future trouble.
This does not mean that you
ignore children when they report
inappropriate behaviour in adults.
It simply means being aware of
2. Do your research and
learn what age-appropriate
behaviour and age-appropri-
ate activities are. Children want
to win the tug-of-war they play
with parents. They will try to
make you feel unfair if you don t
let them go to shows or parties
that they really shouldn t attend
at their age. They ll beg ad nau-
seam to watch a movie or televi-
sion show that is inappropriate
for their age. You need to make
the responsible decisions, as dif-
ficult as they might seem at the
3. Nurture the whole child.
Childhood is about more than
cramming for tests. Make sure
your child is involved in commu-
nity service, a well-balanced
exercise programme and a reli-
gious activity. Nurture your
child s mind, body and soul. It
will help develop coping skills
4. Find a way to nurture
reading. The foundation for all
learning is reading. Dedicate time
for reading every day. Don t stop
reading to children when they
reach school. Switch everything
off for a period of time every
night and have quiet reading
time. It must be a family affair
where everyone stops to read.
5. Teach children that the
world is not about material
things. The world is still about
people and how we all get along.
Values are more important than
Don t expect anyone else to
teach your children values. This
must come from the home.
6. Work family time into the
schedule. Family activities, fami-
ly meals and movies help to cre-
ate important bonds. Family time
provides the opportunity to get
to know your children and their
A discerning parent can figure
out the conflicts in their chil-
dren s lives if they spend quality
time with their children. Don t be
pushy. Be natural. Stay involved
in your children s lives---but don t
7. Listen to your children.
Not listening to children when
they talk is a major problem
most parents face. Sometimes we
get caught up in the battle and
defending our positions so we
really don t want to listen to
what children are saying. We
hear our children listening to a
song we hate and we condemn
that song as tasteless or vulgar.
We let our own fear or anger
stand in the way of the real
questions: why is my child lis-
tening to this song? Why does
my child always seem to be
angry? Why doesn t my child
want to listen to me any more?
At a certain age, children
become reticent. It s our job to
penetrate that rough façade or
silent treatment to discover the
hidden message is. It s a chal-
8. Teach children that there
are no easy fixes for problems
or situations. The pushbutton
computer age we live in teaches
children that gratification must
There is little fun in working
through a process and waiting for
a result, yet children must be
taught this lesson so that they
can learn patience and the value
that comes from diligence and
9. Address your children s
needs rather than their wants.
This is mainly an exercise in pri-
oritising what is important in our
children s lives. Is it another new
outfit that they don t really need,
or saving for the supplies they
need for school?
Children need to learn how to
weigh their requests and deter-
mine what is absolutely neces-
10. Work on building your
child s self-esteem. Most chil-
dren will at least occasionally
struggle with their feeling of self-
worth or their ability to fit in.
Parents need to provide activi-
ties and opportunities for chil-
dren to feel good about them-
selves. This means giving honest,
constructive criticism that hinges
on their strengths and providing
activities that help children feel
they have accomplished some-
thing to make them proud of
Good parenting is not easy,
but it shouldn t feel like a task.
In the end, I think parenting
should feel like a challenge we re
all capable of achieving.
