Everyone wants to be the best parent for their children. Good parenting is crucial to ensure that the child grows up healthy and confident. Parents today are constantly looking for ways to update their knowledge of raising children in the modern world. Many parents often struggle to think about what they can do to keep their children healthy not only physically but also mentally.
As parents, it is your responsibility to make sure you build a strong bond with your children and that you are there when they need you. Their mental well-being in the beginning should be your top priority so that the child stays healthy later in life.
Here are a few things to keep in mind to keep your child mentally healthy:
1. Encourage your children to express their feelings and share their thoughts with you. Show that you love them and their flaws as you make them feel comfortable with you. All children deserve equal care, love and care. So treat each of your children equally and avoid putting one child’s needs above the others.
2. Children usually experience changes in behavior as they go through different developmental stages of life. If you notice your child becoming more withdrawn and distant from friends and family, give them some alone time, but also tell them that you are always there.

3. Children are encouraged when they are praised and told that they have done well. This sense of pride can stay with your children for a long time and can be effective for their mental health. So, whenever you command them to do something, always consider appreciating them, regardless of whether they can excel or not.
4. Parents usually exclude children from the decision-making process because they think they are not mature enough. It is crucial to involve your children in activities so that they feel valued and are motivated to do better.
5. As a parent, express your emotions openly in front of your children. Have discussions at the dinner table or bond with them over a cup of tea. This will make them realize that you are open to talking when they need to express their feelings.
