Use your own childhood experiences.
One of the most direct sources for advice is you. You were a child once, so you can draw on your childhood experiences.
- How did you think as a child? What mattered to you? Are there things that your parents did with you that you would do differently or the same with your own kids?
- Can you think of a stage when you gave your parents a hard time? If you can, then you can understand why it's happening with you and your child!
- Patience goes a long way in successful parenting. Get feedback from your parents about how they coped with raising you.
