Parenting

Raising a child into a responsible adult is actually a Herculean task and more challenging than climbing mountains.

Here are a few tips you could use for raising a child alone.

Show your love

Make your child feel loved and let him or her know that you would give her all the love that he or she would have got if in case of both the parents. But enforce discipline for their own good. Your child needs to understand that your strictness doesn't mean that they are not loved.

Make a routine

As a single parent, you might have a tough time spending quality time with your little ones, so make a routine and stick to it. This will make space for everything.

Create a kid-free time

Get some time for yourself. Leave your kids at a play, your parents, or a daycare, so they also learn to be independent at the same time. This is essential and not selfish.

Share chore activities

Involve your kids in some chores at home, start early. This would help you all bond well, while making them a responsible, and self-sufficient person from a young age.

Make everything fun-filled

Fun-filled works are enjoyed more. A drive to the school or even some time off together doing nothing at home, and anything to everything that you can do to make sure you add an element of fun to it. This will bridge the gap between a parent and a child.

Don't feel guilty

Substituting for a person 24/7 and not compromising on your responsibilities is a tough job, it is normal to feel guilty. But make sure you develop an understanding.

Discipline is important

Too much of pampering may spoil your kid. Never compromise on discipline, know where to draw the line, beforehand.
