How To Raise Children
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Being the parent of your child is a very challenging task. Of course it is fulfilling and fun but you must realize that as they grow older they will start to change. They will change not only physically but emotionally and mentally as well. In order to keep your children on the right path you must work hard from the start. You can do this from when they are first born all the way up to when they are an adult. I have successfully raised three children and I am offering my advice to you as a new parent.

Of course your pregnancy will be challenging. You will have to carry a baby for nine months, your body will change frequently and of course you will have many mood swings. But, raising your child for their entire lives is much harder and takes a lot more time. Through the process you will see that your children will change at multiple ages. The most significant change is when they are teenagers because of the easy access to drugs and alcohol. During this process you must keep your children on a safe road and keep them away from trouble. You must realize that when your children are teenagers they will be faced with trouble on a daily basis, but if you teach them how to avoid it then they will be successful. So, ask yourself the question of how to raise children.

What you do on your daily basis will reflect in your child. As a parent you want to always steer them in the right path, but in the end you must realize that each person will choose their own. But, you can definitely guide them in the right direction by setting good examples. If they were to grow up on the correct path then you have succeeded in being a good parent. You must realize that you as the parent will mold the future of your children.

When raising your children you want to make sure to have a lot of great memories. You want to remember his/her first word, first time he/she walks, or simply their first meal. This can be done by taking pictures or recording videos. If you follow your children as they grow up you will experience a very magnificent thing. Once your child is an adult it will all be over, so why not cherish it while your young?
