According to the American Psychological Association, an effective parent-child relationship is critical for the child’s healthy development. Our goal as a parent is to ensure our children’s health and safety while fostering and enhancing their readiness and competency for life as productive and healthy adults. Moreover, as parents and caretakers, we strive to provide the most intimate context and paradigm for the nurturing and protection of our children as they develop their personalities and identities and also as they mature physically, cognitively, emotionally, and socially. Parenting is a topic that drives deep emotion, raises key questions, and is unique to every family. Parenting means different things to different people. While there are no set rules, official handbooks, school, or special classes that teach parents about good parenting skills, it is a skill that can be learned and mastered. Parenting is a social behavior, and the most significant social interaction you can have is with your child. Parenting skills are not something you discover or you are good at, it is about practicing your responsibility as a parent in a loving but practical manner, while recognizing your child’s overall needs. It is important to seek professional help if there is room for improvement as your child’s diverse needs change or increase and developmental challenges arise.
