Building Habits for a Better Future

July 30, 2017 | By

As a parent, nurturing your child to help him/her grow up to be a responsible adult depends on how well you are able to inculcate habits in your child and establish routines that will ensure a holistic growth. Some useful parenting tips for the new age parent.

Effective Parenting: A New Paradigm

The new age parent has to be a Memory-Maker, an Empathy Emperor, A Humour Promoter, A Sports Catalyst and a Guru of Values.

Parent – it is a word that encompasses your whole world. Once you are a parent, it is a lifelong commitment. You are now responsible to nurture a young individual and make sure he/she grows into a responsible adult. And the best way to do this is by inculcating habits and establishing routines that will ensure a holistic growth. As Ramendra Kumar, author of the bestselling book Effective Parenting: A New Paradigm says, “Habits morph into values.” And these values are the building blocks of an individual’s character and personality.

Some routines are unconsciously inculcated, for example, having a bath, brushing in the morning etc. But are they enough? With changing lifestyles, it is important to build on the age-old routines  and  give them a contemporary tweak.

But this is easier said than done!

The solution is to use technology to achieve this goal. A self-monitoring app that recommends, tracks and helps build habits is the Nuhabits app. The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. It is simple – Sign up, Add habits (multiple categories including Parenting are listed) and Track the progress.

As a parent, you have many roles and under each role there are several habits you must inculcate in your children. Some of the roles identified by  Ramendra Kumar are:

  • Parent as a mentor
  • Parent as a memory maker
  • Parent as a role model
  • Parent as a promoter of trust
  • Parent as a symbol of unconditional love

Being a parent and bringing up emotionally strong, socially responsible and responsive  children is a   tough task.  And while the journey is filled with challenges, the love and joy of being a parent is unmatched.
