Parents have profound influence on the way their children grow up. This New
Year give up your bad habits like procrastinating, smoking etc and be a role
model for your children.
I will make efforts to Understand my Child...

understand why he is behaving in that peculiar manner. This will help you
understand and resolve the issue in a much better manner. This not so easy
goal can be achieved by spending quality time and being patient with child.
I will Teach my Child to Eat Healthy...
Encourage your child to develop healthier eating habits which includes
consuming fruits, milk and vegetables and giving up junk food. Of course,
you need to practice this before you preach.
I will encourage my Child to take Regular Physical Activity...
Obesity in children is rising because of their sedentary lifestyles. It is
extremely important to make your children realize the benefits of regular
physical activity. Enrolling them in the sports class of their choice will
be a good idea.
I will Reward My Child for His Good Behavior...
For the proper personality development of your child, it is important to
praise and reward his achievements and good behavior. Besides, it is also
important to show a calm and patient behavior when your child misbehaves or
is in trouble. This helps him become a cool and level-headed person.
