These are the times when parenting matters a lot in life of the individual. The world is fast and competitive. Good parenting will make children stronger and bolder to survive in this age. Not only has that but good parenting made this world a peaceful and a better place to live. Hence, good individuals produced as a result of great parenting will ultimately create a positive impact wherever they go.

Your training in food, lifestyle, and discipline in early childhood will have a great impact on your child's life in many imperative ways.

Putting Your Baby to Sleep
Right from the start, babies vary tremendously in their sleep patterns. It may vary in terms of how they deal with interrupted nights.
There are two general schools of thought around babies and sleep after those early months once they need nighttime feedings — so the baby to sleep or don’t — and lots of parents find themselves wavering back and forth.

Two techniques for this are:

Graduated extinction, during which babies are allowed to cry out for short, prescribed intervals over the course of several nights.

Bedtime fading, during which parents delay bedtime in 15-minute increments therefore the child becomes more and more tired.

And many parents report that these strategies improve their children’s sleep patterns, also as their own. But there also are parents who find the thought of letting a baby cry in the dark unduly harsh.

Feeding Your Child
Family meals interest older children as well as younger children, whilst they experience the biological shifts of adolescent growth. Keep that social context for food the maximum amount as you will even go through the scheduling complexities of secondary school and high school. Keep the family table a no-screen zone, and keep talking and eating together.
Moreover, encourage your child to keep tasting different food (healthy options); avoid to rule anything out after just a couple of tries.


Creating Discipline in Your Child
Children usually make mistakes all their life. As a good parent, it is your responsibility to keep a cautious check and balance on your children’s immoralities and behaviors.
Distraction is a very good technique; you don’t need to win an ethical victory whenever your child misbehaves if you will redirect the behavior and avoid the battle. the general disciplinary message to young children is that you simply do not just like the behavior, but you are disappointed and your child realizes it and will unquestionably try to correct the wrong behavior.
