What are some tips for effective parenting?  
Parenting is probably one of the toughest jobs in the world, but it can also be the most rewarding. There are no magic formulas to make someone an effective parent, but there are a lot of resources (books, videos, websites, parenting classes, etc.) that offer information on raising children. Most researchers on this subject agree that nurturing your child’s self-esteem is important to your child’s ability to become confident, independent individuals. It is also important to build structure in a child’s life. Children need to know what their limits are and what the consequences are if they step over those boundaries. It is important for parents to be consistent with their method of discipline so children know without a doubt what the consequences will be for certain actions. Loving your child unconditionally is also important because it reassures your child that even if they make mistakes in life, or do things that disappoint you, you will be there for them. Another good tip for effective parenting is to set a good example for your child. Children learn much of their behavior from their environment so it is important to be a good role model for your child. Note that these tips are not conclusive, but offer just a few suggestions for effective parenting. Consult your health provider for additional information and resources; visit the library or bookstore for reading materials and videos on parenting; or consider taking effective parenting classes. The Family Advocacy Program office often offers free parenting classes, as do many Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs).
