With the birth of a baby, a woman's life becomes bright, rich and fulfilling. The maternal instinct arises at the first stage, when the baby is in the womb. Excitement and a sense of fear intensifies as soon as the baby is born. What if you will not be able to become an ideal mother, protect you from troubles and adequately raise your descendant? You do not need to be perfect in everything, it is enough to love your child and devote yourself entirely to upbringing.
First of all, you need to take care of the health of the child. Children get sick, and no matter how hard you try, you will not be able to avoid the most common viral infections. Get regular medical examinations, and it is better if they are competent doctors whom you trust. Do tests, consult a pediatrician about which vitamins are best to give depending on the season and the needs of the child.
Do not restrict play with other children, even if they sneeze or cough. At an early age, immunity is developed, which in the future will easily cope with viral diseases, changes in temperature and weather conditions. If the baby does not attend kindergarten, adaptation should occur among children of the same age. Do not forget to temper your body.
Teach the rules of personal hygiene: brush your teeth, wash your face, take a shower, change your underwear regularly in the morning and evening. The habit is developed early in life and affects health, appearance, and relationships later in life.
From childhood, teach to eat right, but sometimes do not refuse to eat sweets that are unhealthy if the child has no contraindications for health reasons. Childhood should be complete. Remember your teenage years, how you enjoyed chewing gum, a packet of chips and Pepsi-Cola on a festive table. Teach your child healthy eating habits, explain why it is important, and show examples of unhealthy food abuse.
You will not be able to take care of your child all your life, so you must teach independence and protect you from trouble. It is important to clarify the rules for communicating with strangers, to tell what such an acquaintance is fraught with. At the age of 9-10 years, teach how to use electrical appliances and a gas stove correctly, let the first experience be under your control. Make it a habit to check that you turn off electrical appliances, turn off gas and close windows before leaving the house.
Teach ethics of conduct among older people and peers. It is important to put the rules of self-defense into the young consciousness. The child should feel the line between rudeness, obscene behavior and a polite, competent and reasonable response to an insult.
Be sure to instill a love of sports and a healthy lifestyle. At the age of 5-7 years, start taking your child to training, hobby groups. The main thing is that the lesson is enjoyable and beneficial. You can't let everything take its course and allow you to sit at the computer for hours, walk in the yard. Laziness develops from idleness, stupidity comes to mind, and life slowly turns downhill. Of course, free time is necessary, but there should be no excess and complete freedom.
Teach your child how to spend money rationally - this is important. There will be no prosperous life if the younger generation from an early age makes it a habit to spend all their money on completely unnecessary purchases. Having taught the child the values of life and independence, you can be calm, because the protection of the younger generation consists in maintaining health and preparing for an independent, prosperous adult life.
