Parenting has different stages requiring different responses from a parent. There is the time of innocence and total dependence until about age two or so; next begins the struggle for independence and the time for discipline; then around age twelve or so is the launching stage where a parent should strive to be more of a mentor. The main thing – when children misbehave don’t provoke or piss them off unnecessarily. Pick moral battles, not amoral battles, especially as they get older. If parents don’t walk the talk all I can say is good luck! Parents’ efforts to have a positive relationship with their children can help bring out the best in them. Good parenting often is simply expressions of the golden rule. How do you wish your parents had treated you when younger? Do all of this and more and the kids might visit when grown because there is a relationship.
