7 top tips to become the best parent!

 

For teachers, it can be quite difficult to understand the needs of each individual in the classroom, which is exactly why us parents could be doing more at home to help our kids lead happier and healthier lives.

We have found 7 tips that should help you become an even better parent, check them out below!

 

Be a role model for your kids…

First off, it is important to remember your child looks up to you. So, everything you do should be with them in mind, as they are constantly learning off you, it is imperative that you set the right example.

 

Show your children you care about them…

Ask your child how their day went, give off the correct body language so it shows you’re interested in their answer. Some children just want to talk about their friends at school or how much they’ve enjoyed a FootieBugs class.

 

Don’t shout, just talk…

Tell schools how you feel about their teaching whether it’s good or bad, it’s this kind of honesty that teachers look for. For example, in our FootieBugs classes we offer clear communication between the coaches and parents which has as allowed us to improve our sessions week by week.

 

Speak to your child on their level…

If you try to understand your child’s problems from their point of view, then it will help you build a stronger relationship with them the next time you speak. So, try to agree with them more often if they are making a good point and equally, tell them little things they could be doing to help for example “If you do your homework first, you can play with your toys”.

 

Focus on the good work your child has done…

By admiring their achievements, you are setting the bar for your children as well as making it clear that you appreciate them. One thing that has made our FootieBugs sessions so rewarding for children is the addition of trophies and certificates, which keeps the children coming back.

 

Don’t shut down the conversation…

If your child approaches you with a problem, don’t always search for the easy answer. By saying “just go to bed” or “just get to school” you’re closing the door on finding out what their real feelings are. By asking more questions, you will make your child feel safe about opening up to you in the future.

 

Don’t be afraid of being different…

 

At the Bugs Group, we believe that too many children are forced into the world of social media and video games too early, which as we know, is a main contributor to depression and poor mental health. This is why our classes use the children’s creativity through imagination. For example, for our early years group at FootieBugs, we let children show their personality and express themselves in our story-themed lessons, we do this by making each child a part of the story and involving them at all times.

 

Each of our classes are taught with a child-like charm that lets each child use their imagination through sport.
