Mommy Moments - Parenting Tips

Being a first time mother, I know I still have a lot to learn about parenting. Parents play a big role in molding their children to become good persons. With my husband out of the country most the time, I have been left with the task of juggling my time between work and mommy duties. It was never easy. Raising a child is a tough job.

 Children look up to their parents and will most likely follow what they see or hear from their parents. My son still speaks jargon words but I was able to teach him to say "sorry" and "thank you". Whenever he accidentally step on someone else's toes, he would immediately say "soyi". Whenever, you hand him something, he would say "enk you". Even in the middle of the night when he can't keep his eyes open because he is too sleepy, he would always thank me whenever I hand him his bottle of milk.

These may seem like two simple phrases but hearing your child say these would mean a whole lot to a parent.

You will soon reap the benefits of teaching the kid good manners...I taught my kid how to say those simple phrases when he was two and at nine years now, whenever he receives anything, he still says "Thank you!" and he says "Sorry" whenever he knows he'd hurt someone...And he even tells me if the other person he thanked does not replied "You're Welcome!"..

hope you can also take a peek at my parenting tip

I agree, mga sis. We're lucky because our parents were able to teach us good manners earlier on. It is but natural for us to pass on the good traits that we acquired to our little ones. =)
