Appreciate your child’s little acts of courage.
It will strengthen her emotionally and prepare her for life’s big challenges.
Show faith in your child’s inherent goodness and she will blossom into a well behaved child. 
Focus on rewarding her good deeds, rather than criticizing bad ones.
Allow your child to make mistakes. Let him realize that a mistake is not a mistake as long as one learns from it.
Do not lose you’re temper or yell at your child. You are only showing the kind of behavior you want to discourage in your child.
Don’t make promises you cannot keep. Too many broken promises will make your child lose trust in you.
When you discipline your child, make it clear that it is the behavior that you are condemning, and not him.
Do not over-parent children. Give them space and let them solve some of their problems on their own.
If you want your child to accept his mistakes, first you apologize. Be humble when you talk to the servants of the house if you wish your child to be a good human being. Lead by example. Remember, you are your child’s role model.
Never use fear to make your child do something. It could lead to phobias and emotional imbalance later in life. Empathy, not fear is the key to a child’s healthy development.
Do not expect your child to behave like an adult. Children cannot sit quietly or concentrate on one thing for too long.
A time will come when your child will spend more time with T.V., friends and clothes than with you! Accept and respect these changing needs of your child. It certainly does not mean that love has vanished.
The most important gift you can give to your child is your time and attention. Even if you have limited time some days, make sure he gets your undivided attention
A little patience can make all the difference between wanting to be good parents and actually being one. Whenever you are about to lose patience with your child, just pause and remember your own childhood.
Rewarding children every time they do something good is harmful in long run. Long-lasting change happens only with internal motivation.
Never talk about your child’s teacher with disrespect. The moment the child sees his parents make fun of the calibre or the authority of his teachers, his listening towards his teachers stops. And so does his learning.
Saying ‘NO’ too often can negatively impact your child’s self-confidence. Offer alternative solutions or logical reason for denying a request.
If you made a mistake in front of your child, admit it. It will strengthen his trust in you.
It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Protect your child, irrespective of anything. He too has a self-esteem; he too has feelings like you.
Be proud of your child for what he is. Do not link your status in society with his success or failure.
It is important to develop in your child the ability to take right decisions. But it is more important to develop in him the courage to face life when the decisions go wrong.
If you fail, never give up because F.A.I.L. means “First Attempt In Learning”
End is not the end, in fact E.N.D. means “Effort Never Dies”
If you get No as an Answer, remember N.O. ,means “Next Opportunity”
So let’s be positive – Dr. A.P.J. ABDUL KALAM
