Being a parent is one of the most rewarding jobs you’ll ever do.

 

Children don’t come with a “how to” manual and it can be tough at times. Learn about how you can cope during stressful times. It doesn’t matter how old your child is, you can:

  • Give your child love and attention every day
  • Comfort your child when they are upset, sick or hurt
  • Play or read with your child everyday
  • Understand your child’s temperament and what they can do for their age
  • Praise and encourage your child
  • Make sure you all get enough sleep and eat nutritious food
  • Be a good role model – children learn from what they see and hear
  • Have a routine for play time, meals and bedtime
