Interaction with your children does not have to be static and tense, it can be fun and rewarding. Be a parent that promotes positive and healthy communication style in your family.
Asian parents often confused with the term discipline and punishment. Although it is widely seen to be associated with one another, the truth is they are not. Discipline can be positive too. Parents are encouraged to discipline their children with love and kindness, not through punishment.
Negative emotions do not have to be an embarrassment. Being aware of one's mental state is important. Educate children about positive and negative emotions. Let them know it is okay for them to feel those emotions. Guide them with the appropriate way of coping with those feelings.
Parents, your wellbeing and health are equally as important as your children's. Your state of mind plays a big role in positive parenting. Don't neglect yourself. Sometimes, it is okay to put yourself first.
