Guide To Making Parenting A Little Easier

By: Armbrust Lowers


Invest in a great nursing pillow for breastfeeding twins. A pillow will make your breastfeeding go much more smoothly. You will be able to use it to feed both at the same time. Make sure you remember to switch sides during the feedings as they will have different sucking patterns.

When breastfeeding, do not try to feed the baby on a strict schedule. Letting the baby eat when he is hungry will allow your supply and the baby's hunger to develop as needed. If you try to feed him at a set time, he will not suck as hard and your body will not respond with letting down your milk. Your baby knows when he is hungry so follow his cues.

Engage with your children's education, and let them know how important school is. Make sure they have a nice quiet place to do homework at home. Help them with their homework if they need it, and make sure they understand the importance of not just completing it, but completing it on time.

Get your child involved in the kitchen and excited about cooking by basing some of your meals off of books they are reading. Let them think of creative ways to incorporate their stories into dinnertime. Then, find age appropriate ways to let them help out in the meal preparation, from washing grapes to rolling meatballs.

If you are a savvy mother that likes to do home haircuts, this tip may help you succeed in a great home hair cut. If you are cutting bangs, just cut the hair that reaches the outside of the outer corners of the eyebrow. It will make it easier for you to cut them straight and even.

When reducing your child's television and video game time, make sure you are creating other fun activities to choose from. Play boardgames with your children; play outside with them; or go somewhere fun outside of the house, like a park or a play area. Whatever you do, make sure you provide options to your children.

What experts say is true-- reading books to your child is very important. Children learn just about everything by reading, from colors and numbers, to shapes and letters. Experts believe that 30 minutes of book reading each night could have your child on the way to reading before they even reach kindergarten!

One great idea for parenting is to use positive discipline. Rather than scolding your child for a messy room reiterate to them how happy it made you to find their room clean. Children have an urge to please their parents and the more ways you provide them to please you the happier everyone will be.

Communication is key. Learn to listen to your kids and speak to them in ways that make them feel comfortable and willing to open up to you about issues that concern them. The tips above are meant to be used as a guide so you and your child can have a relationship based on love, trust and communication!
