The idea of ideal parenting may vary to everyone, but it is important to have a parenting style unique to you.
A parent should take time to get to know what makes their child unique, favourite activities, fears and dreams.
Nobody is perfect and as a parent you will make mistakes, but it's the faults that will you will turn into lessons learnt, which will most likely make you a better parent.
It is important to make time for your family and other personal interests, and one should leave work at office and they are home, as a striking balance between both is the key.
Respect your child's mother, as showing your child love and level of respect for her will teach him valuable lessons about relationships.
Make an effort to spend quality time with your child every week to spend time and talk to him so that you can learn about each other.
